Welcome to Water Stone Outdoors

Providing quality gear and friendly advice to rock climbers and outdoor enthusiasts in the New River Gorge of West Virginia since 1994. We are here for your needs to make your outdoor experience the best possible!

Co-owner Kenny Parker has been in the outdoor industry for over 25 years and has developed our shop to the point that it has a national reputation as being one of the best hardcore destination outdoor shops in the county. We are proud of that. We are proud of the fact that we have the best climbing shoe selection in the country. We comb the outdoor industry for the coolest, most funtional and fun clothing and pride ourselves on carrying that obscure product that you just can’t find elsewhere.

We are staffed by a wonderful group of climbing enthusiasts who are friendly, fun and full of information. No too-cool-for-school attitude here! Quality gear and friendly advice. That has been our motto since we opened and twenty years later, that is still the simplest, clearest way to sum up what we care about and what we do. Come on in and see what you think!
