There are so many trails to enjoy fall colours in this provincial park. It was a fun family outing. There is plenty of parking available. Nice place to do picnic with barbecue option available too. Washrooms are available and are maintained clean.

Day area is an embarrassment. Overgrown in the day area near the store. Pool closed with vegetation growing in the pool. Labour day Saturday it was empty. Not surprised, need some serious maintenance, unbelievable that an affluent city like Oakville can organize a Friends of Brontë Creek park , like others. The main store in the day area looks like an abandoned city you would see on tv. Campsites are average , but also need serious upgrades. Only silver lining is the staff is 10 out of 10.

We have camped at Bronte Creek twice now. It is divided into 4 sections: Ravine, Woodland, Savannah and Prairie. The first time, summer 2021, was in the Prairie section, and the second time was in the Ravine section. Note: if you want to camp near the ravine trails, book a spot in the Woodland area. The Ravine section is somewhat misnamed.

Both campsites were very nice, good sized for our 28 ft trailer. Privacy is varied throughout the campground, but mostly very good. The showers were great both times (hot water, great water pressure, clean). Lovely campground. Great for walks and hikes, and the ravine trails are beautiful. Signage was very good. The park office hours are really short and Ontario Parks people are supposed to patrol regularly but both summers, we didn’t see that. In fact the first year, we arrived after 6 pm and the park office was closed (gate was open though) so couldn’t get our ticket to post at the site, and even the next day we were unable to get it because we went too late and no one at the park noticed! One thing we were shocked by was that if you are camping and friends come for a visit, they have to pay! $10 each! So be forewarned.

What’s great about this location is that you are in the middle of Oakville, so if you need anything or forgot something, it’s 5-10 minutes to a store. If you are new at trailer camping, and something breaks down or you get a flat tire (happened to the people in the next campsite over from us), you are not far from help. It is a quick drive from anywhere in the GTA. However, being in the middle of Oakville has its drawbacks as you hear the distant drone of constant traffic.

So overall very very nice campground. We will probably return and try out the Woodland section next year!

My family recently rented out one of the yurts at Bronte Creek. I was shocked that these are even rentable in the spring and summer because when the temperature was 25 outside, the inside of the yurt was showing at an unbearable 38 degrees. I was told by staff later that the thermostat in the yurt maxes out at 38 degrees so it could have even been hotter than that. The next day was even hotter so it was even more disgusting to be in. When we arrived, the windows were all closed and fans were turned off. It would have been nice for staff to prepare for arrival and make the inside slightly cooler by having these things done especially since they were in there cleaning that morning anyways. We were unable to spend any time in the yurt during the day and only became manageable around 10pm when it cooled off for the evening but we still had to sleep with the fans on. I feel the yurts should come with a warning and should not even be rented out in hotter weather as it becomes a safety concern.

Overall this park is nice during summer. It's got a lot going for it like areas with farm animals, lots of picnic areas, many paths to take, forests, bike paths, dog area, etc. However, my only complaint is the price of parking. If someone is parking and using the park for 1/2 or full day then great, but if you go there at the end of the day to use it only briefly for a quick bike ride then the price of parking is a bit much. It is good that its free if you enter without your car, but it would be a nice option for brief parking. Also watch out for the high grass areas. Last year there were tons of ticks. Maybe this park could use some opossums :)

We camped here the week of July 19/21.
The sites here are a mixture of semiprivate and public spots.
The site we had was large enough to handle both our RV and dinning tent.
The washrooms and showers are neat, clean and updated.
There are plenty of trails for hiking and biking.
Our granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed the children’s play area.
The dump station at checkout was not very clean with lots of water and
mud, the flush hose had the connection cutoff making it inoperable.
It’s very close to any type of shopping you may need to do.
It’s an ok park but nothing outstanding

Fun to come and soak in some fresh air - nice trails to walk or hike. Some cool nature spots and trails - the kids like the gnome trail and the hills to climb up and down. Also always a must to see some animals and play on the playground / play barn when open.

We used their off leash dog hiking trails today, which are near the campgrounds. They take you through grasses, a pine forest and beside a creek, and our dog loved it there!

Very good park for walks and spending time with family. Closed for picnics due to Covid but open for walks. Creek walk is interesting and fishing can be done here. Well maintained by park authorities
