About Us

Berea Kentucky's Outdoor Gear Store


Jake and Tim Harding created Boone Gap Outfitters to inspire and empower people to get outside and reap all of the benefits nature has to offer. We believe the people of Berea deserve to have a local gear shop that provides them with everything they need to enjoy our area without breaking the bank!  We're both from Berea and know just how special this place is, which is a huge part of why we're doing this.  Not only do we want to share information with our community and tourists, we want to do our part to make sure this area is just as special as our children grow to experience it!  We will have group trips, host community events, compile in-depth trail info, promote art in the community, have a lounge area, organize volunteer cleanups, rent gear, sell gear, implement a bike share program through Berea, have a consignment program, conduct gear reviews, host workshops at the store, and who knows what else!  We're extremely excited to be able to have this opportunity and to fill a need for our community.  Thank you for joining us on this journey, we're glad you made it!
