Outstanding conservation efforts in Wilmington have led to some of the most remarkable trail ways and vistas in the Carolinas, and Great Outdoor Provision Co. wants to help you take advantage of them. With 7,000 acres, you’ll never see the same thing twice at Boiling Springs Nature Preserve. Experience the unique coastal wildlife at Sugarloaf Dune Trail, paddle out to Masonboro Island and camp for the night, or try your hand at fly fishing in the Brunswick River. Wilmington residents have the world at their feet, and we can’t wait to explore it with you!
Led by manager, Tim Glover, our friendly, experienced staff works long hours, so you can stop by at a time that’s convenient for you. We spend our free time using the very same products that we sell, so someone in the store is sure to have tested what you’re looking to buy. We’ll give you the inside scoop on the pros and cons of each product – including things you won’t find on the tag, like which carabiner is easiest to clip on a crux move or which water purifier works the quickest.
The outdoors is our passion, and we love to share it with whoever is interested. For people who are new at outdoor sports, we offer kayak roll sessions, fly tying lessons, kayak fishing clinics, and other informational and active outdoor events. Come into the store at 3501 Oleander Drive (US 76) and we are sure to find you a fabulous, healthy new hobby, or get you geared up for an old favorite!
