About the Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply

Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply started in 2010 when Jack Stone, Owner and Founder, sought to bring top quality outdoor equipment and clothing to the North Shore. They found their niche providing affordable options to access the local environment with our tours and rentals.

They have a philosophy of balance—a balance of old techniques and new ones, of different gear and equipment, and of passion and skill. They want to help each person and group find the right mix of items to fully enjoy the unique experiences gained outdoors.

Stone Harbor Wilderness Supply invites folks to connect with them on their Facebook Page and their website, or through their newsletters.

Mark your calendar today so you don’t miss the next Grand Marais North Shore Water Festival in June at the Grand Marais Harbor Park in Grand Marais, Minnesota.
