About Us

Rough Riders Sporting Goods is a family owned business started in 2012 by Jennifer and Bruce Fey.  They wanted to open a store in Idyllwild that would cater to the local community and the visitors that come up to their mountain town to camp and enjoy the great weather.   Idyllwild is known for camping, fishing, hunting and great hiking.  The town is located in the San Jacinto Mountains between San Diego and Palm Springs California.  At an elevation of 5000ft the weather is cool in the summer and the winters are just cold enough to get snow for sledding.

Rough Riders is a camping, hunting and survival store.  They have tents, sleeping bags, lanterns and stoves for camping.  Get your bug out bag packed here they have Mountain House freeze dried food, water treatment drops, fire starters, solar lanterns and radios.  They have military fatigues, hats, backpacks and boots.  Come check out the military surplus they get new items every month.  You always need a knife when you are out camping or hunting they carry Spyderco, Kershaw, Cold Steel, SOG, CRKT and Gerber.  Not everyone knows but Idyllwild has a skate park so Rough Riders has Plan B, Element and Zero decks.  If its and airsoft war you are looking for they carry Echo 1, Bravo and Socom Gear.
