Base Camp

Welcome to Base Camp...... where adventures begin.....end....and are rekindled. We have been offering custom trips, adventures, and memories since 2003. Welcome to BVO!

Why BVO?

BVO opened in 2003. With over 20 years prior experience 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 outdoors
  • 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 advice for regional adventures. We offer secure parking, change rooms, flush bathrooms, and spacious grounds to picnic on, if  desired. Connecting friends and family.... Come discover with us!

Plus, we have a terrific staff! They make all the difference

BVO supports a staff of ambitious college students and professional adults experienced in their field. Our college students are aiming for Biomedical engineering, environmental engineering, aviation, education, medicine, and pharmaceutical . Your choice to come to BVO is a choice to experience these great minds, great service, and support these futures! It does make a difference.
