Gear To Go

Drum_ODR Gear to Go.jpgThe Gear to Go counter is located in the Outdoor Recreation Office, offering a wide variety of recreational and event equipment.

Winter items are available November 1 through April 30 and include ice-fishing, skiing and snowboarding packages. Summer items are available May 1 through October 30 and include canoes, tents, bicycles, campers, sleeping bags and more. Click the links to see prices and all items you can check out each season.

In addition to recreational items, special event items are also available. These items include inflatable bounce houses and slides, character costumes, popcorn, cotton candy and Sno-Cone machines. Complete brochures are also available at the Outdoor Recreation office.

A rental day is considered time of pick up to 12 p.m. the following business day. If rental items are returned later than 12 p.m. on the designated turn-in date, you will be charged an additional day's fee for the rented item(s). All items must be clean and in good working order for acceptance by Family and MWR Staff. Damages/loss will result in additional fees.

All reservations require a $25 non-refundable deposit (or a one-day rental fee for items less than $25), payable upon reservation. This fee will be applied to the final cost of goods and/or services. All equipment rentals are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
