Wilderness Outpost

The Outpost is hard to find but easy to love!  We’re downstairs in the CRC.  Enter the main entrance; pass the info desk, down the hall, through the double doors, and down the stairs.  Continue past the swimming & diving offices then down the stairwell on the left just before you exit the CRC).  The Wilderness Outpost is at the bottom of the stairs. You can also enter from Tech Parkway adjacent to the lower level of the W-10 parking deck. 

Rent outdoor equipment at reasonable rates, find maps and guidebooks, sign up for ORGT outdoor excursions, or find out how to join ORGT's outdoor sports groups like kayaking, mountain biking, etc. at the Wilderness Outpost!
