Wilderness Exchange parking lot

For over a decade, Wilderness Exchange has held a massive yard sale in the parking lot behind its store. Tents and tables are available on a first-come, first serve basis for people who want to sell unwanted gear. Set up begins at 8 AM, while the actual sale event begins at 9 AM.
Sales representatives will also be on hand to sell discounted samples and demo gear.
Pro Tips: If you plan on selling gear, make sure you bring a camping chair to sit on if you arrive too late to grab a table. Also, make sure you have plenty of cash on hand to make change or snag some deals for yourself.
