As you arrive at our Backwoods store in Oklahoma City, you begin to feel the promise of good things inside. Designed with wood siding and lots of natural materials, customers love the mountain shop feel. The store sets the mood for a great time to be had checking out the specific and varied range of outdoor equipment we offer. Once you’ve chosen the item you came to purchase, it’s easy to then wander through the store and get a feel for other sports and interests you might want to try, like trekking, backpacking, or tents for the best camping experience of your life!
We make having fun a priority at the store and strive to plan events that people will enjoy just for the sake of trying something new and having a great time! The craziest event we've hosted was also the most fun; it was called The Slackline Hangout, we let people try slacklining right in the store! Day to day we make the most of the moment; one customer brought an Australian Bearded Dragon to the store and it was the talk of the staff for days! Our incredible staff is the best thing about the store; everyone has such diverse and interesting experiences to share. From bouldering & rock climbing, to a rich array of pastimes from trail running, to angling, and backpacking.
We love to get outside and take advantage of the opportunity to test out new camping equipment and outdoor gear. Our staff will head to the Wichita Wildlife Refuge for a little good-spirited competition; maybe a camp stove cook-off, or a contest to see who can finish first trail running in barefoot shoes! Our staff just loves the opportunity to travel and chances are we have field tested any of the gear you may need for your next adventure. From the perfect ravel backpack, hiking shoes, base layers, fleece and outerwear, to a survival kit or GPS, someone probably has an opinion about what will work best for you. Collectively we’ve traveled to Grand Tetons National Park, Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Moab, Alaska, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, British Columbia, Brazil, Bahamas, Mexico and Morocco.
We enjoy when our customers share their stories and their own unique interests. Typically these have to do with how the customer enjoyed the product (for example on a mountaineering trip) or some new equipment or activity they want to try (like taking hiking tours while on vacation). It’s great hearing what customers think of our product inventory; folks always seem surprised at the Yeti coolers and our selection of fly-fishing products. So if you need outdoor gear and are anywhere near Oklahoma City, head on over to our Backwoods store; we opened in 1974 and collectively have 65 years of helping people make the most of their outdoor pursuits!
