Hello all, We were at the Toronto RV On Friday as well. We finally met with the manager of Bingemans Camping Resort in Kitchener., kept missing him on the phone. Oktoberfest is held Thanksgiving weekend. They have a camping package that includes 3 nights camping and 2 nights of Oktoberfest Friday and Saturday. The big Thanksgiving Day Parade is Monday Morning, Canada's largest.

If there is suitable interest we will discuss Numbers and Can get pricing worked out.

Potential Weekend would look like this

3 nights Camping, going to work on Thursday night free camping for a 4th night for early arrivals

2 Nights Oktoberfest if you like on site Festhall
Dinner Buffet of fine German Food and Mennonite Specialties
Saturday Morning Farmers Market Visit Possible
Sunday is a down day at Bingemens, Possible Lunch Buffet at Local Mennonite Restaurant
There is also a very large Bowling Alley onsite as well with Boston Pizza, we could a Frog Tourney
This is the World's Second Best Oktoberfest! Only to Germany.

Depending on likes or dislikes there is a lot going on in Kitchener-Waterloo this weekend including many Authentic German events.

Please let us know If this something that would interest everyone..

WNY is only 3 hours away, Michigan Port Huron is 3 hours as well

Brian and Bette

Hi Brian. We would possibly be interested but we are so close it might be counter productive to take a site from a distant visitor for such a great event. That being said we may be able to help out behind the scenes if you need us. Keep us in the loop and we will see what we can do to help if we can. Good work guys. Nice to have some great Canadian FROGS to put themselves out there to try to get something like this organized. Old Guys (Brian and Joanne)

[QUOTE=Kaadk;765138]Now that it's the new year, I thought I'd revive this topic. I'm still interested in seeing if we can get something going in SW Ontario. I can recommend Camper's Cove (camperscove.ca) as an option, but that might be a little too far south for some of you. However it would meet most of the wants for a FROG location (fair number of sites, pavilion, etc...) I haven't tried contacting them yet, nor looked at dates as I'd rather gauge the interest first.

Or, alternatively, any other sites you all might recommend.


We head down to Rondeau in April. We like the area ourselves. Depending on Dates might be interested, a 2 hour drive for us.

This works for me. (Not sure about DW yet though.)

Given the existing one in June, and if we're doing this one in October, maybe I'll look into the other Southwestern Ontario one in Spring of '16. I was thinking if we did it just before Victoria Day, say May 13-14-15 looking at the 2016 calendar than we can call it something like: "SW Ontario FROG Season Opener" or even better "Annual SW Ontario FROG Season Opener".

If there's interest I can try setting something up with the one site, and then we can rotate locations around SW Ontario year to year.

Hello All,

Been a week since posting details. Thanksgiving weekend is a stretch for many. I knew that when I posted the dates. Also some feedback on being too late in the season for some, all ready Winterized. There is an option for the weekend after Thanksgiving as well if Oktoberfest is something people would like.

Let us know if you have any Interest either here or by PM.

Brian
