Hello, outdoor resort!

Some niche's are more common than others, in Ontario you have a multitude of hunters and gun-range advocates alike, small-town explorers and even hiker enthusiasts. Yet, when it came to the hobby/sport of Off-roading, only few viable options existed which provided lodging and private trails for those of all skill levels. Ray's Place (formally South Wind Motel) saw a community which both needed such offerings, and were welcoming to all outsiders interested in the ride. That is why the staff and owner have progressively created one of the most attractive off-roading resorts in Northern Ontario, accommodating all four-wheel-drive vehicles and challenges.
