Camping Gallery 2016 in Review...

 

Halloween in August 2016

An atmospheric, ominous backdrop of distant thunder (safely distant) accompanied treat or treaters this year as they scurried around busily...

Videos - New and More Horrible Things on display this year...
New Monsters on Melody Lane, ready to pounce on unsuspecting kids. Dueling Banjoes of Death added to Fiddler's Green display.

Christmas-in-July 2016

It's not just our seasonal campers in Melody Lane who 'get into the spirit' of our summer-time version of the December Holiday.  Kid's and parents help decorate the Bingo Hall, wrap secret presents and gather for a traditional visit with Santa Claus himself...

In the Office, Brenda shows off her sparkly 'Ugly Christmas Sweater'. It just wouldn't be Christmas with a raffle on a Gift Basket.
Santa and his "Helper Elves' were generous to the kids this year...

Santa always has everyone's attention when he visits!  And, apparently, there are ONLY good little boys & girls at Renfrew Camping each year, so everyone gets a present and a Surprise Pak!

Go RVing...

Traveling or just wanting to get the family out for the weekend or vacation?  Or maybe thinking of not driving anymore with your rig, and parking it for the summer and just relaxing for a change?  At Renfrew Camping, we have a variety of sites to accommodate you and your needs.   For the travelers we have pull-through sites large enough to handle 60 foot rigs.  They have 30 amp power, and they're level, too.

Want to camp where the action is?  We have full service hook-ups designed for those with smaller trailers and camper trailers.  15 and 20 amp power and sewer connections lets you and your family camp in comfort.  Every RV site has room for a fire pit and a tent for the children.  It wouldn't be camping without them! 

Thinking of slowing down and camping seasonal for a change?  Check out our large variety of options, ranging from full service at 30 amps, to self-metered sites. to just water and electricity.  Families love our competitive rates!

Ask about our improved Seasonal Sites with the 3-way hookups increased to 30 amp power. gravelled parking spots, new picnic benches & brick firepits.

Tenting...

Tired of camping cheek by jowl with strangers?  At Renfrew Camping we offer roomy tenting sites so you can enjoy your own family experience, not the neighbours'. We also believe that tenting means just that, so you won't have your view blocked by the converted school bus that just rolled in and decided to park sideways in front of you.  Our main tenting area is serviced with water only, although we do have areas where electricity and water are offered to both tenters and RVers.  We have something for just about everyone.   We closed for 2009 at Thanksgiving, surrounded by gorgeous autumn colours!

 

Activities...

We have a lot of fun at Renfrew Camping.  The river is perfect for kids to find out about minnows, frogs, and other freshwater small fry.  The stars of the river are the turtles, which always attract a crowd when they make an appearance.   

If you're a fresh water person, there is a decent swimming hole just a short walk from the campground.  Swim with the fishes!  

We celebrate 'Easter in June', 'Halloween in August', and of course Santa Claus makes an annual summer appearance, for 'Christmas in July'. No child wants to miss Santa, no matter how hot it is!

Our hay wagon ride has been a staple for many years, and remains as popular as ever.  Tom Leighton knew he had hit upon a sure crowd pleaser the very first time he ran one.  Four generations of hayride passengers and counting!

Play horseshoes?  Like a challenge?   Weekends at Renfrew Camping is the place for you as there is always a tournament going on Saturday afternoons, and the regulars are always on the lookout for fresh chuckers.  Come on and join in!

Or maybe bingo is your cup of tea.  No problem, because you can always count on at one bingo game per weekend, sometimes two.  If you feel lucky, it's a great way to top up the weekend.

fall coloursEveryone likes to see Mother Nature in her glory when they go camping.  We at Renfrew Camping are blessed because we directly border the largest unspoiled acreage in Hants County, a block of Crown land measuring 1200 acres.  It isn't uncommon to see deer in the early morning, or later after dark.  Canada's national symbol, the beaver is alive and busy in the waters running through our campground. Muskrats can be seen if you are quiet and eagles and hawks sometimes circle the sky above.  Songbirds (too many to name), turn the early misty summer mornings into symphony halls, and kingfishers work the river for their daily meals.  And when the Canada geese begin their training flights, everyone can't help but notice for the honking! Of course, the animals of the forest, river and sky are wild, and don't parade themselves on cue, but if you love nature and God's creatures, we have a jewel here and you won't be disappointed.  But here's a hint.  Naturally, wild animals shy away from crowds, and we  usually have more campers on weekends, so if nature is your reason to camp, try us during the week.  It's very peaceful.

● 100 sites with EWS (30 @ 20 amp)
