Special Event - 'Stoney's Jambouree - Saturday August 22nd, starting at 2:00pm and running to 5:00pm, then breaking for folks to have their suppers. Then starting again at 7:00 and running to 11:00pm. Featuring some local talent and to be held outside (weather permitting), on Fiddler's Green. Hosted by the one and only 'Stoney' a long time resident of the Green and a much loved campground favourite. All welcome - C'mon all ye and have a right good time!
Saturday the 15th is 'Saunders Night' - We're pleased to welcome the hilarious entertainment of musical act 'The Saunders Brothers' 7:00 to 8:30pm, outside if weather allows. This is a FREE-for-all show, but we'll be passing the hat to help pay for their expenses. More details to follow, meanwhile check out their web site, and mark your calendars for this knee slapping interactive comedy 'kitchen party'...
New Pool - Just in time for High Summer, our new pool is open and the weather is finally great for swimming! The best part of August and September are still ahead of us and we invite everyone to take our latest upgrade for a 'test swim'. Let us know what you think...
Halloween in August - even more than Easter in June and Christmas in July, this annual event has always been the highpoint of the summer before BACK TO SCHOOL looms on the horizon in September. (Pretty scary, hunh kids?)
For a long time, Stoney's Place on Fiddler's Green has been the most over-the-top with decorations and treats for the kids, with new items and ideas as time goes on.
This year we're featuring a few candid shots from his place in recognition of his efforts over the years to raise a few squeals from the campground kids. Pointed hats off to one of our oldest and most beloved campers!
While lots of loot waits inside for good trick or treaters..
Another fate awaits baaaad trick or treaters!

Highlights from past seasons...
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!
- 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'!
Last 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!

GPS Advisory: We recommend you follow our directions to our campsite rather than using your in-vehicle GPS system. Our directions are calculated to bring you as close as possible via a 100 Series Highway before turning onto secondary paved roads. Current GPS directions may route you onto a longer course, partly on back-country dirt roads.
