Canoeing, kayaking, backpacking, climbing, hiking, biking. We’re a family owned small business with two locations in the Allegheny National Forest region of the Pennsylvania Wilds. Welcome!

We have two locations - our downtown outdoors store, and our livery (where canoes and kayaks are rented). Beyond our two physical locations, AO has a lot of moving parts. We've organized this site according to the different aspects of our operation, which can be found below. If you just need a quick question answered, contact us at AO Store or AO Livery.


AO Livery: Canoe + Kayak Rentals on the Allegheny

We span a 107-mile stretch of the Allegheny River from Kinzua Dam to Emlenton. From a few hour day trip to a week-long excursion, the mighty Allegheny awaits!


Allegheny Outfitters Outdoors Store

Plain and simple, we use the gear we sell. From kayaks to backpacks and everything in-between, our goal is to help you find the quality gear you need, at a fair price.  

AO Online Store

Dedicated to our unique AO product line. Local books, Allegheny National Forest and Allegheny River stickers, limited edition t-shirts, and trail posters to name a few.
