Camping & Hiking Expert Nicole Ogden
  • Nicole Ogden

    Hi! I'm Nicole and my passion in life is the outdoors. I grew up in the mid-Atlantic and found my love for hiking and backpacking in high school. I also enjoyed activities such as swimming, sailing, kayaking, running, and just general exploring so I quickly learned the importance of being prepared with the right gear.

    I have since started working seasonal jobs so I have lived in a variety of places since then and have had months off at a time to road trip around! I worked in Denali National Park most recently and got out backpacking nearly every weekend I could! The weather and terrain there really took some extra thought and care to solo backpack safely so I am more up to date than ever.

    I have also spent an extensive amount of time living in temperate rainforests (Olympic National Park, WA, and near Ketchikan, AK) and at a few frigid ski resorts in Colorado, so I know all about staying warm and dry!

    I also love science, especially when it relates to nature, so hit me up for some fun facts!

    Nicole is awesome!!
    Nicole was so patient, kind and easy to talk with. She answered all of my questions and offered great insight! Nicole sent me a few reminders to check back in regarding the gear I was looking for, however, I never felt pressured from her to purchase anything. She took the time to thoughtfully & efficiently pick out suggestions based on what I was searching for. I'm planning my first backpacking trip this Spring and was thankful to receive the support in getting the right gear from an expert! Speaking with Nicole was like like chatting with a friend - she genuinely cares and wants you to have the best experience with whatever adventures you go on! I look forward to continuing to connect with her - thanks again, Nicole!

    Nicole easily got me to talk about my camping gear and needs and was able to find a cook-set that was just what I needed (and BONUS it came in fun colors!)
