About American Outdoor

About American Outdoor

We're here for the adventurer, the tranquility seeker, the risk-taker, and the outdoors enthusiast.

How do you challenge your routine, leaving behind the walls and devices that lock you in? Maybe it’s fishing solo, or kayaking with family and friends. Or tackling that steep scramble. Or sharing a meal around a fire, amid thousands of acres of forest. At American Outdoor, we live for the moments we can explore the vast wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. That’s the feeling we want to share.

Meet Joe


I started this company with my family in 2017, to reach everyone from tough kayak fishers to family campers. We’re honored to serve our community by partnering with Heroes on the Water, helping warriors relax and reconnect through kayak fishing. And we’re proud to feature products made in the U.S., the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Come swing by the shop, we love to talk kayaks and gear. Just give me a call first at 253.256.7850.

Let’s get out there!
