Real Adventure is Closer Than You Think!
We now offer three different locations and levels of accommodation. Our newest facility, The Seven Mountains Adventure Resort in central Pennsylvania, features upscale lodging and an amazing property,
In New Jersey, the Sportsmens Lodge has rustic but clean bunk house style lodging, while the Nesco Training field works with a local hotel, which also serves as the start of our AMA National Adventure Ride, The Pine Barrens 500.
All of our locations offer excellent meals, too. Our Director, Jack O’Connor, in addition to being a life long off road racer and adventure rider, is a former Maitre’d and Caterer at world class hotels and restaurants. He uses that experience to make sure everyone enjoys the food and service provided. Check out the size of that steak! And this is at the Rustic Sportsmen Lodge, wait till you see the size of the prime rib at Frog Rock Country Club, where we eat when in Nesco.
Our Lead Instructor, Mike Bradway is a former East Coast Enduro Champion and MX professional. Mike also adds an “Eco-Tour” element to the rides in the forest, pointing out and photographing wildlife and interesting historical spots on the routes.

Less than two hours from Manhattan!
New Jersey’s Pinelands National Reserve, located in the Southern half of the state, is a unique and fascinating natural resource covering over a Million acres. It is the largest body of open space on the Mid-Atlantic seaboard between Richmond and Boston and less than two hours from Manhattan. It’s also a great place for an off-road adventure ride. There’s over 1000 miles of legal dirt roads and dozens of forgotten towns just waiting to be explored. You would be amazed at the vast wilderness of the State Forests and Wildlife management areas and the fact that you can have an incredible journey this close to home. Visit the Pygmy Pine Forests, Cranberry Bogs, magnificent Atlantic White Cedar Swamps, winding scenic rivers and what Witmer Stone once described early in the 20th Century as “desolate stretches of white sand barrens.”
The Pine Barrens Adventure Camp Riding School will help prepare you to safely navigate your way through this amazing but sometimes challenging landscape, and help improve your off-road riding abilities. Both beginners and experienced riders will gain confidence by improving their basic skills. The staff and instructors are champion Enduro, Motocross and Rallymoto racers as well as experienced adventure riders. We have been organizing AMA National and Local Adventure and Dual Sport Rides in the Pinelands since 2005, and are also officers in local enduro clubs, organizing enduro and hare scramble events. We are a “Grassroots” organization, doing this for the love of the sport.
