Outdoor Gear Library and Resources


The SLA provides free gear loans for the purpose of increasing ease of access to the outdoors and knowledge about safe and sustainable outdoor recreation. If you are interested in using the SLA's gear library please email gear@squamlakes.org or call 603-968-7336. Rentals are reserved on a first-contact-first-serve basis as there is a limited supply of gear. For weekday rentals, please contact us a minimum of 24 hours in advance of your desired reservation date. All weekend rentals must be made no later than the Friday before. Gear can be rented for a maximum of four days. First time users of the gear library will receive a quick demonstration of proper use and care of gear and safe/sustainable outdoor recreation. Refer to the bottom of this page to look at SLA's 101 guides for outdoor recreation! 












Before heading out on your expedition we encourage you to refer Leave No Trace guidelines, found on the right-hand side of this page, and look through the SLA's 101 guides:
