How To Make A Reservation

  1. Call or stop by Outdoor Adventures in the Carmichael Recreation Center to make a gear reservation. Our phone number is (919)-513-0072.
  2. Payment is due at time of reservation (if you stop by in person). If you’re reserving gear over the phone, just come by the Outdoor Adventures Equipment Rental Center or Member Services at the Carmichael Gym main entrance to pay within seven (7) days of your pickup date.
  3. If you’re picking up paid reservations on a Friday, you can drive up to the Outdoor Adventures garage doors. Please park and come inside if you’re picking up on any other day, you don’t have a paid reservation, or you have reservation changes.
  4. You can return gear on Monday by driving up to the Outdoor Adventures garage doors. Please park and come inside if dropping off gear on any other day or if you need to pay late fees.

Helpful Hints

  • Once you pay for your reservation, cancellations are not possible. No refunds will be issued for any reason (including bad weather).
  • During busy times of the year, we may limit rentals to four items per item type per person (e.g., four tents, four sleeping bags, etc.). We may limit canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards to two per person.
  • Payment can be made with cash, check (made out to NC State University), or credit/debit card. We accept Visa and MasterCard only.
  • Returned items are expected to be reasonably clean and dry. Cleaning fees may be assessed for excessively dirty items.
  • For equipment returned after the due date, a late charge will be incurred. You are responsible for the full replacement cost of all equipment not returned, damaged, lost, or stolen.
  • You are responsible for the loading/unloading of the canoe(s) and kayak(s) onto your vehicle or trailer. We will provide an information sheet with proper instructions for strapping a boat to your vehicle.
