Shank's Mare

Sales, Rentals, & Programs for Kayaking, Paddleboarding, Outdoor Gear & Disc Golf

“Shank’s Mare” is an old Scottish saying that means “to travel by foot”. Since our activities are self-propelled, we thought it an appropriate name for our store.

Established in 1978, Shank’s Mare Outfitters is located in an historic 1880’s general store building on the banks of the Susquehanna River.  Our 7 retail rooms feature equipment and clothing for kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, walking and hiking, and disc golf.  A wide range of outdoor accessories compliments our great selection of products in a truly unique Outfitters Shop.  The store also features it’s own branded “Go Play Outside” clothing, hats and accessories.

A special feature of Shank’s Mare Outfitters is our full slate of rentals and programming to support our products.  From kayak and SUP lessons and rentals, to guided paddle tours and hikes, to activities for the whole family.  Shank’s Mare is sure to provide you with all the tools you need to  GO PLAY OUTSIDE.
