Camping and backpacking Rentals

Houghton, Michigan is the heart of the Copper Country. Year-Round Gear is here to help you have fun exploring the Upper Peninsula. We rent snowshoes, cross country skis, kayaks, SUPs (stand up paddleboards), bikes, canoes, and also rent camping equipment, and other items. If you don't know exactly what you need for your trip, or where to go, we can help, we are also an information center. The UP is our life. Browse the rentals and feel free to contact us with any questions, or for reservations. If you are looking for fun places to explore we can lead you to awesome spots anywhere in the UP.


Last year we started to rent out gear for camping and hiking. Our inventory for rentals is still growing as people find out about our camping and hiking rentals. We know the things you will need anywhere you go around the Upper Peninsula as we have used a wide variety of gear across the entire Upper Peninsula.
Whether you are heading out to Isle Royale National Park, the Porcupine Mountains State Park, Craig Lake State Park, or car camping at any of the Michigan State Parks, or you are going to explore anywhere else across the Upper Peninsula, we can help you get outfitted to enjoy what the U.P. has to offer.
