We offer a Southwest Michigan outdoor sports gear product mix of camping, kayaking, hiking, backpacking, skis, snowboards, xc skis, snowshoes, canoes, kayaks, footwear, travel gear, luggage and the clothing to do it all in. Performance and quality is in all of our products.


Some of our awesome outdoor sports gear vendors include: Asolo, Burton, Fischer, K2, Keen, Lolë, Nordica, P&H SeaKayaks, Patagonia, Perception, Prana, Salomon, Sierra Designs, Smartwool, Technica, The North Face, Thermarest, Völkl Skis, Wilderness Systems, and many more.




Started in 1954 in southwest Michigan at the Cork Lane shopping center; we were known as Lee's Toys and Hobbies. That changed as the product mix became more outdoor sports gear and we became Lee's Sports and Sportswear. We moved to the Kilgore Road location and slowly the outdoor sports gear product mix became more and more outdoor and winter sports oriented and Lee's Adventure Sports emerged.
