· We are a Paddlesports Business. We specialize in canoe, kayak, and
stand-up paddleboard (SUP)retail sales, livery services and repair services. We also design, manufacture, and sell our own line of canoe and kayak trailers.

· Our home is the Old Train Station in Marysville, Pennsylvania (at the end of the rainbow). We're located in Central Pennsylvania, just a few miles north of Harrisburg.

· Our home river is the Main Stem of the Susquehanna River.

· Our location is convenient: get off Interstate 81 at Exit 65 and go north on Routes 11&15 for 2 miles. We're on the right, just before the traffic light.

· Headed downstream (south)? From the Route 322 / 11 & 15 intersection, follow Routes 11 & 15 south for 10.5 miles. In Marysville, we are the first business on the left, immediately past the traffic light.

BMO News Notes:

Spring has sprung - Time to go boating!

Climbing - Mountaineering - Backcountry - Rope Course
High Angle Rescue and High Angle Work Gear

We stock technical gear that is useful for paddle-sport safety, rescue and outfitting, but we don't go far beyond those purposes with our inventory of climbing type gear. Additionally, we don't have much experience or expertise with the endeavors listed in the title. However, we do have access to the associated gear and, given the lack of technical-outdoor-gear shops our area, we want to make these products available to our customers. If you can specify your gear choices, we will order the products for you. No promises, but we often receive orders the next day.

The manufacturer available include:
ABC, Beal, Climbing Technology, CMI, Cypher, Edelwise, Five Ten, Fixe, Grivel, Kong, Maillon Rapide, New England Ropes, Omega Pacific, Singing Rock, Sterling Rope, Stubai, and others.

Give us a call, stop in and browse the catalogs or check out the following website:

T-Formex™ Canoes Are Coming

We are expecting a shipment of Wenonah T-Formex™ canoes in February.
T-Formex™ is a plastic composite designed as a replacement for Royalex® which disappeared form the market in 2014. Ramp-up on T-Formex™ production has been a slow process, but we will be happy to once again offer canoes constructed of this type of durable, moderate weight, reasonably stiff, and intermediately priced material. Stay tuned.

March 11 update: February has slipped by and we're still waiting for delivery of the T-Formex™ canoes. Again, stay tuned.

Cold weather PFD rules are in effect in PA.

They're lining up to get to the river because kayaking is that much fun. Come on in and gear up for a good time.

Recently we were made aware of this CBS video on the history of Lady Liberty on the Susquehanna River at the Dauphin Narrows.

BMO On-Line Store

Check out our new on-line store: BMO Store.

The BMO Store offers the quality specialty products you can find in our "brick and mortar" store in Marysville, PA and more! Enjoy shopping through our great selection of kayak and canoe accessories, care and repair products and BMO stuff such as BMO T-shirts, hats and cozies.

There they go.

About our Retail Store:

·   We specialize as a full service paddlesports store.  We stock canoes, kayaks, SUP's and all kinds of paddling accessories. We also stock repair, outfitting and rescue supplies, and some camping equipment.
·   We're a brick and mortar business located in the old Marysville train station. 
·   We aren't a sports department store with big open spaces, in fact, visiting our store is a lot like spelunking; it's crowded with merchandise and you can find the neatest things hiding in the crevices or suspended from the ceiling.  Plan on taking some time to explore the largest paddle gear and accessory inventory in the area.

RR Caution Notice: Blue Mountain Outfitters is located in the old Marysville Railroad Passenger Depot and the railroad tracks that are located immediately behind our building and parking lots are very active and very dangerous.

Do not park with any part of your vehicle extending past the parking lot lines. Do not turn your kids or pets loose behind our property. For that matter, do not leave them unsupervised anywhere around here -- the road out front is no safer than the railroad out back and we have a lot of vehicles with trailers moving and backing up on our lots. If you step past the parking lot lines or behind our building, you are trespassing on railroad property and the fines are very stiff -- they do not like killing people.

Frequently you cannot hear the trains approaching -- from years of train watching we know that this is not a myth. Worst of all, Amtrack uses these tracks and they always seem to be making up for lost time when they go past here.
