The Firehouse Sports Resort is geared for the ATV & snowmobile minded enthusiast offering complete packages including accommodations and food. Unload your trailer and park you bike at the front door of your cottage.

After dealing with the issues of hotels and places to park, we realized that we needed to do something. Then the idea of an ATV sports resort was born and The Firehouse Base Camp keeping up with the changing tourism industry and wants and needs of our ATV men and women. We wanted to create a safe haven for ATV enthusiasts and their vehicles (of all kinds), where they could feel safe to ride and play at their leisure. Firehouse Sports Resort is designed entirely for the all-terrain vehicle enthusiast. Our base camp is a rustic waterfront camp setting.

Whether with family or friends, we can assure you that your memories created here will last a lifetime of the Firehouse and family weekends. So we will see your family or group year to year. We are offering that atmosphere that makes you want to return and meet new friends that will last a life time. Bringing friends together that has the same passion for loving life and the great outdoors.

The Firehouse Sports and Recreational Resort Staff and Jason and Anita Manning dedicated to families and sports enthusiasts. As busy people in a fast-paced world of work and continued commitments we tend to overlook the simple things in life like spending quality time with family, friends and nature.
