The Outdoor Recreation supply checkout provides patrons with items ranging from tents, boats and trailers to barbecue grills, gardening tools and ice chests. All rentals are available on a daily, weekend or weekly basis. We pride ourselves on providing everything you need from your outdoor adventures to your back yard party, recreational, and gardening needs.
A locked, fenced storage lot, located behind the Shoppette, is available for patron usage. Personal recreational vehicles (i.e. campers, boats, motor homes, and privately owned vehicles) may be stored by individuals that are going on temporary duty or permanent change of station, with a follow-on assignment back to Shaw.
Individuals may register for use of this lot through the ODR office and individuals will be designated a parking spot number. For additional questions call or stop by the ODR office during normal buisness hours.
