For a real ATV recreationist, riding the trails is a hoot. But most would also like to participate in competitive events that get down and dirty like mud drags, poker runs, and obstacle courses. Most resorts that cater to ATVers seem to offer the trails. The Four Seasons Resort and Campgrounds located in West Finley, Pennsylvania offers ATVers trails and events including an ATV Rodeo for the kids.

The Four Seasons Resort is located in the southwestern region of Pennsylvania with easy access to the rest of western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and eastern Ohio. Many ATV enthusiasts who visit the place use it as their jumping off spot into the other regions and then return to the resort after their adventure.

According to Steve Presto, manager of the resort, the site started out as a private campground which was constructed in the early 1970s. It had 400 campsites--300 permanent and 100 weekend sites. “We remodeled all the buildings and opened up to the public in 2000,” said Presto.

Accommodations include the 400 campsites; a 12-room motel with double-sized beds and air conditioning in each; eight apartments; two cabins; five comfort stations; and a lodge with restaurant, arcade, showers and dining room with a huge fireplace and big screen television, a seasonal snack bar and an Olympic-size outdoor pool, and convenience and country store.

The property sits on an 850-acre piece of the hills of southwest Pennsylvania with 30 miles of groomed trails of all skill levels. Although the resort includes an ATV-bike pro shop, machines are not available for rent. Guests must bring their own ATVs, show proof of insurance and register them at the office.

The resort has detailed rules and regulations for riding the trails which can be found at its website: www.campfourseasonsresort.com.

The resort’s staff includes activity directors who organize games, contests, and themed events. You can visit the resort’s website to find a calendar of events. For example, on Saturday, May 22 there is an ATV mud drag; on Saturday, June 19 there is an ATV obstacle course race; Saturday, July 3 an ATV, golf cart, and bike parade is scheduled; on Saturday, July 17 there is an ATV Rodeo for the kids; on Saturday, August 7 there is another ATV mud drag; Saturday, September 18 is Motor Sports Weekend; and Saturday, October 9 is a Poker Run.

Other events scheduled that are not ATV related include a pet show, hayride, and patriotic celebration on Saturday, May 29. Survivor Weekend is on Friday, June 4 through Saturday, June 5; Hawaiian Luau Weekend Friday, June 11 through Saturday, June 12; Wet N’ Wacky Weekend Friday, June 25 through Sunday, June 27, and “Vegas” Weekend Friday, July 9 through Saturday, July 11. Refer to the website before booking for an event to be certain of time and date.
