Outdoor Recreation


  • The Outdoor Recreation program offers outdoor adventure trips and tours to all surrounding Southern/Northern California and Nevada attractions. The goal of the ODR is to equip customers with the skills and equipment needed to help them discover fun and safe outdoor recreation experiences. The ODR is the place for gear rentals as well. Stop by to check out recreational equipment such as horseshoes, mountain bikes and safety gear, camping equipment, camping trailers, generators, barbecue grills and more.

    Located within the Outdoor Recreation Center, the recreation equipment checkout program encourages the exploration of the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains and other Southern California attractions. Since no other nearby checkout or rental opportunities exist, this program attracts a steady cadre of customers.
