About Us

It's a great day to be outside

The Mackinac Outfitter has been a mainstay on Mackinac Island for decades. The shop has a proud tradition of serving both visitors to the island and locals with top quality outdoor clothing and gear for all seasons, activities, and weather conditions. Rain, shine, sleet, or snow; the Outfitter has you covered! 

The Mackinac Outfitter has always been proudly owned and operated by Island locals and the new ownership as of 2021 is no different. The shop was purchased by three brothers who grew up on Mackinac Island and shopped at the Outfitter all their lives. Their goal is to see the Outfitter continue to serve the community as a centerpiece of outdoor adventure on Mackinac Island and in Northern Michigan. 

For these three brothers the Mackinac Outfitter has always been the gateway to their next adventure as they hiked, paddled, rode, and swam through the stunning natural beauty of Northern Michigan and the Great Lakes. They hope the Outfitter can be the same gateway to you and your family - helping you to make sure you have everything you need to experience the depth and breadth of the experience and adventure that Northern Michigan has to offer. 

Whether you need a bathing suit for the pool or lake, a rain jacket or down vest for chilly days and wet hikes, sunglasses for road or water, or just a t-shirt to remember your sunny days on Mackinac Island - we’ve got you covered.
