Welcome to the Great Outdoors!
Conveniently located along the Deerfield River on the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) in Charlemont Massachusetts. 
     We do our best to provide all the products and services needed for an exciting, safe and affordable day of tubing or rafting on the Deerfield River. We operate on a first come first serve basis, no reservations. Almost all places in the area are reservation only and by the time you actually decide to come out on the river everyone else is fully booked.This allows us to accommodate anyone and everyone who rolls into town looking for some fun in the sun tubing on the river.  
     We always have plenty of tube's for sale and for rent, plenty of parking and our shuttle service is available to transport you and your tube or raft up river to the starting location.
     Our phone number for the Great outdoors is also my home number (Chris Carcio) so call me with any questions or concerns you might have. I do ask that you please read through the website before calling.
     To make your experience complete and safe on the river The Great Outdoors carries a variety of tubing accessories and gear such as: tubes, rafts, floating coolers, life vests, sunscreen, waterproof bags, rope, paddles and many other items you may need for your day on the river. 
     Make the trip and come on out, trust me you'll be happy you did.  Looking forward to seeing all our return customers and meeting new ones, This is going to be a great season!
