Our Family Serving Yours

Southeast Outdoors Solutions has been a family-run business since it originated as Playground Solutions in 1989 by Beth and Jerry Hood of Canton, Ga. After building the business for 30 years, the Hoods chose us, Michael and Karrie Poole, to build onto their legacy. Michael, being in the car business for 20 years and Karrie full-time at her job for 17 years, decided to take a leap of faith. On November 1, 2016, we became official owners of the business, so we too could start building a legacy of our own for our children, Jenna (13) and Jax (1). We re-branded the company in early 2018 to fully showcase all of the equipment, amenities, and services offered. 
       
Both southern-born and raised, our roots run deep, and we are proud to serve these communities and families all over the Southeast. During our free time, you can find us cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs, playing outdoors, hiking, fishing, skiing, riding motorcycles through the North Georgia mountains, or planning the next family adventure. Sundays include eating a home cooked meal at Michael's grandmothers with 30 of our closest family members.

    Part of why we do what we do is knowing we're giving families a place to build memories. That's why we donated a play set to First Baptist Church & Preschool of Jasper, a place that's given so much to our family.
