Sunrift Adventures was founded in 1980 by local outdoorsmen Bo Terry and Jim Kelly. The Upstate has seen tremendous change in the last forty-odd years, but Sunrift has stood the test of time and is still locally owned and operated by Bo Terry and his dedicated staff.
Our store is in a historic cotton gin in downtown Travelers Rest. A century ago, local cotton was ginned, bailed, and loaded onto cars along the Greenville and Northern Railway (also known as the Swamp Rabbit Railroad). The old railroad bed is now the vibrant Swamp Rabbit Trail, and the old cotton gin is now an outdoor outfitter like no other.
Travelers Rest is your gateway to the mountains and lakes of Upstate South Carolina and beyond. Avoid the congestion of big-box shopping areas, find expert local advice and cutting-edge equipment, and let our our dedicated and highly experienced staff can help outfit you for your next adventure…big or small!
Every year, Sunrift helps the environmental cause by having donation days and pledging money, merchandise, and volunteers to environmental organizations across the upstate and globe!
