Greetings from our Chapel Hill Store
This spring we’ll be offering free, informal kayak & canoe demonstrations conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. This is a great opportunity to try out a boat in an environment that is informational, informal and presented at no charge.
Our Afternoon Boat Demos are geared towards customers who have already narrowed down their choices after visiting one of our shops and feel that some on-water time prior to purchase is necessary. However, we also welcome folks who are just curious about kayaks & canoes and want to try it out in a low pressure environment.
Folks unable to attend one of our scheduled on-water demo events can inquire with their local shop regarding a fee-based demo. As for specific boats, in addition to any particular models from an attending manufacturer, we’ll bring some of our most popular boats and boards that are best suited for flatwater, fitness, fishing and all-round use. However, please let us know in advance if there is a particular boat or board in our demo fleet you would like to try and we will do our best to get it to the lake. Please note that if a boat or board is not in our demo fleet, we will not be able to bring it to the event.
Chapel Hill is a wonderful place for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re headed to the Johnston Mill Nature Preserve, the Eno River, or Occoneechee Mountain, our staff will make sure that your time outdoors is as comfortable as you want it to be. As manager Chad Pickens knows, there’s nothing more important than being prepared.
Our store carries the top brands and products so you can fly fish, canoe, kayak, and go backpacking in safety. We offer everything from carabiners and headlamps to dehydrated food and camping stoves. If it involves the outdoors, we carry it, and if we don’t have it, we’ll find it for you! Our expert staff will explain the differences between the products to you, and help you select the one that fits you best. Whether you want just the essentials for a day pack, or are planning a hike through Europe, we’ll get you on your way.
New to outdoor exploration? Our staff can suggest Chapel Hill hiking trips , paddling trips, andtrail runs. Chapel Hill is where we live, work, and play, although sometimes work and play seem like the same thing at Great Outdoor Provision Co. Come check out our store today, and we’ll set you up for adventure!
