Base Camp

Welcome to Base Camp- Headquarters to Adventure

Why BVO?

BVO started in 2003. With over 20 years prior working as wholesale canoe and kayak reps, helping establish the paddle sport industry, we decided to bring our expertise to a local level.

  • Offering rentals of canoes, kayaks, rafts, tubes, and bicycles
  • Sales of canoes, kayaks, and gear for the out of doors
  • Area hiking options
  • Vacation getaway lodging

Tucked against the hills, adjacent to a State hiking trail, our off-grid business offers outdoor experiences to folks of all levels, and guidance for this Southern Washington Co. terrain.
