Camping Department Info

Camping is a big part of the Pacific Northwest lifestyle and Yeager’s has always been a part of that outdoor tradition. Most of our camping department staff members have spent more than a few nights out in the woods themselves, which means they have used the products we sell and can help our customers select exactly what they need for their next trip – be it weekend car camping or a week of backcountry hiking. In fact, Yeager’s only carries well-known, high-quality camping gear and related products because we know nothing’s worse than a camping trip where something breaks, leaks or doesn’t work. You can count on Yeager’s to make your next camping experience an excellent one.

Meet Shelly Newell

Shelly was born and raised in Whatcom County. She started camping and fishing when she was just a little girl; every year her family would take a trip to Sekiu, WA and her father and grandfather took her saltwater fishing. Even today, she remembers the first halibut she ever caught: it weight 14lbs and it seemed like a monster to an 8 or 9 year old Shelly. Shelly began big game hunting around age 15, going for bear, deer, elk, and even cougar. She primarily hunts modern rifle, but goes muzzleloader as well. Her true joys in life are her family, including 11 grandchildren, and being outdoors—whether it is fishing, camping or hunting, it is all great! She is happy, and eager to share her knowledge and experience with anyone who is interested. Email Shelly at:
