Samsons Outfitter


Gogebic Community College is located in God's country, surrounded by lakes, streams, trails, and the Porcupine Mountains.  We encourage our students to get out and explore all the area has to offer.  The Samsons Outfitter is located at the Welcome Desk in the LSCC and has a variety of outdoor gear, games, and equipment available to check out FREE for all current GCC students!

Gather your friends and stop in at the Welcome Desk to plan your next adventure!  Brochures to area trails, camping spots, and attractions are available, along with our friendly student staff to help you.

If you prefer to stay closer to home, we also have a variety of activities and games you can play with your friends including pool, board games, and disc golf.
