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!
