About Great Lakes Outpost

Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an expedition devotee,  Great Lakes Outpost understands the need for quality outdoor gear. How do we know that the right gear makes all the difference? Because we are passionate for all things outdoors, of course! We are a band of hikers, bikers, animals lovers, foodies and music aficionados all with a desire to be outside and playing.

Who Is GLO?

Great Lakes Outpost is a local specialty outdoor retailer offering high quality products, equipment, and apparel to support an outdoor adventure lifestyle. Great Lakes Outpost is managed by locals (and a very cute dog) who are passionate about for hiking, cycling and all the adventure that the great outdoors offers.

Great Lakes Outpost was formed from a father/son duo who had a deep love of the outdoors. They have had adventures for years and have plenty of stories to tell! (Ask about the bear spray incident.) These explorers saw a need in the West Michigan area for a specialty outdoor retailer. Thus, they founded Great Lakes Outpost in 2016.

Though we are a young company, we dedicate ourselves to our customers to offer the best and most knowledgeable service possible. We want you to experience our passion for the outdoors and help ignite yours! Real People. Real Adventure.
