Labour Day Lights

The official end of the 2014 season at Renfrew Camping saw the campground looking cozy and welcoming with more lights among the visitors than ever, highlighted by our annual fireworks display. 

Here's a three minute video montage from the evening's sights and sounds...


New this year - our campers enjoyed a musical Jam Session in our Bingo Hall Saturday night after the fireworks.  'Russell & Friends' played a mix of old favorites and newer songs featuring fiddle music, ganjo, dolbro, and lots of guitars.

August - Watch Campground Owner Randy Leighton enjoying 'The Big Chill' as he gamely takes part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Looks like it's 'breathtaking' to say the least!

Christmas in July - 2014

- was Saturday July 12 at Renfrew Camping.

This Annual event is a great time for families at Renfrew Camping, with a festive spirit in the air and the kids excited about a visit from a certain 'jolly ole fella'!

This year one of Santa's elves noticed one young lad taking a peek at the pile of presents behind Santa's back to see if he could spot his name; it sure felt just like 'sneaking downstairs Christmas morning" at Renfrew Camping! 

2014 Photos and video now online...

Canada Day - People loved our Canada Day Fireworks; a big thank-you to local business Leno's Stop Shoppe for a great deal on a great selection of pieces.
