Hood River, Oregon

Outdoorplay is one of the largest outdoor specialty retailers in the country, but did you know that it began in one man’s garage 28 years ago?

In 1995, John "Tree" Trujillo launched Outdoorplay as a one-man kayaking school in Hood River Oregon. When we went online in 1998, Outdoorplay became a national presence and over time, grew to become one of the largest outdoor specialty retailers in the country, stocking only the most reputable outdoor brands.

His unwavering dedication to providing world-class customer service, instruction, exceptional outdoor expertise, and an unbridled passion for getting people outdoors made Outdoorplay what it is today.

Today, Tree continues to play a pivotal role in the business, diligently guaranteeing that outdoor enthusiasts have easy access to premium gear and unparalleled expert advice.

We're adventurers, just like you

Our mission is to provide you with superior gear and five-star service to increase your outdoor quality of life.
