    I've known Ed and his team for over 40 years, which just happens to be how long they've been in business (40th anniversary this year! Congrats!). I've bought all kinds of gear here, including, of course, my first canoe, a Mad River 15'. I still have it, and I still love it. River Sports truly cares about their customers and their buying experience, and they are always looking for new and innovative products to bring to Knoxville. Don't know what you need? They take the time to explain the different options, always in a friendly, laid back way, never pushy. In the rare event that there's an issue, they make it right. Local stores like RSO are becoming rare, sadly, and when given a choice between local or Big Box, I choose to support them because I want them to be around for another 40 years. Thanks, Ed, Brooke, and the entire RSO team, for continuing to be a part of our amazing community and for being my outfitter of choice.

    I have purchased many kayaks from River Sports over the last 25 years. Great selection and helpful staff. I've enjoyed shopping there. They have recently added customizing your kayak.

    First time here and I'll be back. Rarely have I experienced the level of customer service the guys working gave me. I was searching for certain kayak parts for a lower end start out, unfortunately they didn't have what I needed but those guys looked high and low to be sure. New to the kayak scene not into backpacking, hiking, camping, cycling that type stuff but have mercy they have such a selection of stuff that is so useful in general. Believe I nosed around for about 2 hours and seen some things I didn't know existed. They have one of the best selections of high end and mid level kayaks I've ever seen. River sports outfitters, keep up the good work and thank you for being pleasant and helpful.

    Looking for this specific shoe. Did not have in stock at the store however they went the extra mile. Drive to warehouse and brought me back the size I needed. Also had huge selection of sporting goods, from packs, shoes and clothing. Definitely will be my go to store for sporting goods. Thanks again for the exceptional service.

    Staff is always kind and helpful, very laid back atmosphere. I was looking for a PFD for paddle boarding and they had a really wide selection that I couldn’t find elsewhere.
