Appalachian Outfitters

Made possible by


Appalachian Outfitters is North East Ohio's leading outdoor specialty store located in Peninsula. We're just outside the Truxell Rd. / Kendall Park Rd. entrance to the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Appalachian Outfitters is a family-owned business started by Bob Collins which opened May 1, 1988, in a small Canton strip mall. Our little Canton shop doubled in size and in 1999, we opened our Peninsula store and rock gym, one that is considered of the premiere outdoor retail facilities in the U.S. In 2006, upon deciding to retire, Bob sold the business to Mike and Karen Leffler. Whether it's hiking, climbing, paddling, or exploring the urban jungles, we carry an extensive line of top-name products for all of your outdoor needs. Our highly trained staff not only can recommend what to use, but how to use it. Our staff not only helps you select the best merchandise for your activities, but they use our products on a weekly basis. M-F: 10am-8pm; Saturday: 10am-7pm; Sunday: 11am-6pm
