Camp Folks is Tallahassee’s outdoor gear rental & excursion company. We opened our doors in November 2015 offering high-quality gear rental and one-of-a-kind outdoor excursions, and with the support of the community, have been growing ever since. Our mission is to get more people outside and experiencing the natural beauty of North Florida and South Georgia.
Camp Folks was founded by Tallahassee, Florida and Thomasville, Georgia locals, Julia Hix and Aaron Ruddell. They started Camp Folks to help bring awareness and accessibility to outdoor adventure in Florida’s Panhandle and beyond. Now, folks living in and visiting Tallahassee, Florida can rent outdoor gear at affordable prices and hitch rides on the Camp Folks’ Adventure Mobile to exciting outdoor adventures like camping at Cape San Blas, tubing down Spring Creek and Chipola River, paddling the Wacissa River, and hiking the Garden of Eden Trail. We also are available to create custom excursions for corporate groups and organizations.
As our small business grows, we look forward to helping our local Eco-Tourism and Agri-Tourism economies flourish by continuing to partner with local businesses. We also hope to educate our local community on how to protect the environment we love so much by sharing Leave No Trace Principles and holding outdoor community workshops. Thank you for your continued to support and feedback, we’re proud to serve Tallahassee!!
