Gander Mountain Comes to Charlottesville
The Charlottesville area is known for being a land of natural beauty and rustic charm. Whether you enjoy hiking, camping, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking or rafting, Albemarle County offers the nature enthusiast an abundance of options to enjoy the land.
Virginia is also home to the majority of the Appalachian Trail -- 544 miles to be exact. For a particularly beautiful experience, head to Shenandoah National Park where you can traverse 101 miles of the Trail.
This fall, nature enthusiasts planning their next excursion will have a new option for their recreational needs. Charlottesville is soon to be the home to Gander Mountain, the nation’s largest chain of outdoor specialty stores. Hunting and sporting buffs are no stranger to Gander Mountain. It is a well-known and oft-frequented source for countless hikers, bikers, kayakers, campers and more.
Gander Mountain’s Charlottesville location will be housed in a 45,000-square-foot space on Seminole Trail/US Hwy 29. In business since 1960, Gander Mountain has locations in 24 states, devoted to improving the quality of one’s outdoor lifestyle.
With top-quality gear, Gander Mountain will be a go-to stop for Charlottesville’s active demographic. As an outdoor recreation hub, Charlottesville has long attracted nature aficionados looking for a rural paradise to work and play.
