About Us

Backcountry North has been supporting casual campers as well as professional adventurers for over 40 years now. Our brick-and-mortar stores are located in Traverse City–our home and what we like to call–Michigan’s Outdoor Capital. We are a 100% LOCAL business, and always have been since the day we were founded in 1978, right here on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay. Our staff is the best in the industry, and they come from a variety of outdoor backgrounds with skills and experiences that aid our customers in ways few other retailers are able. 

We love adventure, and all the people, places, and experiences that come with being outdoors. We want to help you go to places you never thought you would visit, have adventures you never expected, and travel farther, in more comfort and with greater confidence than you thought was possible.
