Backwoods Adventures History
Backwoods, founded in 1973, was one of the first specialty outdoor retailers in its region. Known for integrity, treating the customer right, an exceptional staff, top quality technical gear and a broad collection of outdoor clothing and footwear, Backwoods has been keeping people safe and comfortable in the outdoors for over 35 years. Currently operating stores in 5 states, Backwoods also opened an online store in November 2008 to serve customers both inside and outside its region.
