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!

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.
