Puppets inspired by our friends in the Great North Woods make excellent teaching tools for camps, class and home. They are awesome story-telling assistants and just good ole fashioned fun!
While everything we carry is tested and tried in the field, not all gear is necessarily a fit for lightweight Wilderness Canoe Camping. Some of our best-selling gear appeals to car-campers, preppers, and survivalists. From Axes and Knives to blade sharpeners and waxed-canvas packs from our friends at Frost River in Duluth, and extending to beautifully crafted Northwoods Jewelry, we stock quality pieces that our customers need. You might not think you'd find custom knives and exclusive bushcraft accessories at a canoe camping shop, but that's just what we carry with pride. The best part is that we're always listening and we're always bringing in the best available gear. If you like to read, another surprise is our fantastic and expansive selection of book titles from our independent bookstore -- it's where good books find you.
We have a wide variety of canoe gear, canoeing accessories, camping gear, clothing, books, tools, paddles and gifts for you to choose from. Enjoy your visit!
