Shank’s Mare Outfitters…Go Play Outside
Join with those who encounter nature’s best at Shank’s Mare Outfitters, just across the border from Lancaster County, where you are invited to go play outside.
Since 1978, this hidden gem has earned its well-deserved reputation as a premier year-round outdoor sports destination. Located in a renovated 1800’s general store, overlooking the picturesque river views and shoreline of Lancaster County, the idyllic setting of Shank’s Mare is a favorite launching point for water activities.
Shank’s Mare specializes in kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. The Outfitters Retail Store features clothing & equipment sales and rentals, while the Outdoor Education Center offers instruction, programs, trips, eco tours, and camps for a variety of activities based in & around the Susquehanna River.
Come and play, then relax with friends at the Lock 2 Cafe. Host your next event at The Rookery, a meeting room with spectacular views of the Susquehanna.
