Young Outfitters finds its roots in the spirit of “Old Florida” and in the meandering black water of the St. John’s River. Home to rich history, and an even richer wilderness, we believe the inland freshwater systems of Florida have a unique and vital part to play within the ecological fabric of our beautiful state.

The intentional stewardship of this precious natural gift cannot move forward without you. That’s why we are here. Our goal is to do all we can to facilitate your next adventure so you can form your own connections to this beautiful landscape.

So, let us help. We are right here in the heart of real Florida. We love what we do, and we think you will too. So, get off the computer and get outside. It’s time you found your wilderness again.


O let them be left, wildness and wet, long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
— G.M. Hopkins, from "Inversnaid"
