Welcome to the ORC
Your one stop shop for outdoor rentals.
End-of-Year Hours: We will be closed between Friday, December 22, and Tuesday, December 26, and again between Friday, December 29, and Monday, January 1.

Rental Special: All rentals during the closure will be billed at the three-day rate.

Please Note: You can only make reservations 30 days before your first reservation date. The system will let you reserve longer than this, but the shop manager will cancel them. If your reservation is canceled, you will be informed by the shop manager.
The ORC doesn't just rent equipment, we also sell some of your favorite outdoor gear. We want to help you get your hands on the brands you love. We have sales and promotions from time to time for both new and used gear, so call or visit the ORC often for prices and to see our featured brands.
At the ORC, we want to make sure that you can have fun, be safe, and have the best rental experience possible. Here are a few quick policies, guidelines, and a copy of our rental agreement.
