About Us

We take pride in our work

The idea of being able to offer hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts premium outdoor products made in the United States using American-made components at a competitive price prompted the creation of the Outdoor Recreation Company of America.

Cliff Walker, a veteran of the building and trade industry, and hardcore hunter decided to use his business acumen, passion for the outdoors and sense of pride in America to create a company that could produce what he couldn’t seem to find – at any price – high-end outdoor products made in the USA that performed as advertised. While it might seem hokey to some, he also wanted to find a way to put Americans back to work, and having ORCA products made in the USA was a way to do just that. The company’s first product was a cooler designed to withstand the rigors of rugged outdoor use by professional and novice alike and to perform far beyond the expectations of even the most critical outdoor enthusiast. ORCA coolers, made in America’s heartland, are the successful result. ORCA, however, isn’t just about selling product. The company recognizes its corporate responsibility and the need to give back to those who have helped make it successful. In that vein, the sale of ORCA products helps give back to conservation groups, wounded warrior programs, breast cancer research and many other great causes.

Since its inception ORCA has created six sizes of its American made roto-molded coolers in four standard colors, white, pink, tan and green. ORCA has released a line of team color coolers, bungee systems, a wheel kit for its coolers, an ORCA cooler Molle wrap system with 15 different accessories, and an entire line of ORCA apparel and gear. ORCA continues to grow and expand its line of products every day. There are many exciting ventures in the future, and ORCA looks forward to sharing those with its amazing supporters.
