Smoky Mountain Trader had it's beginnings as "The Princess Theatre".  In 1998 Carl Dann first visited the Smoky Mountain Trader;  and  although it was far from what it could be, Carl saw a gem in need of a little polish.


The Smoky Mountain Trader has gone through many changes to become the outdoor store it now is.  The Dann family have  worked together for 23 years in their small business, watching it grow into one of the best outfitters in North Georgia.  


We continue to grow and change in response to God's leadership and the needs of the local community.  We are proud to be a part of the beautiful North Georgia mountains and delight in sharing our love for this place with visitors and locals alike.  Our natural resources are such a gift from the Creator!!  We hope you fall in love with our mountains, rivers, forests, and people as much as we have.  More importantly, we hope you fall in love with the God that made them all!
