Pack & Paddle was founded in 1974 by Joan and Doc Williams. What started as a backyard operation selling Grumman aluminum canoes was followed by our first real store in a 400 square foot Acadian house on the banks of the Vermillion river. Today, Pack & Paddle has grown to over 6,000 square feet, housing excellent brands of outdoor equipment for all types of self-propelled outdoor activities. We specialize in rock climbing, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, kayak fishing, fly fishing, family camping, and much more.

Also offering Kayak Swamp Tours, Fly Fishing Trips & Classes, Hiking Trips, Photography Tours and more.
