Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park is a year-round naturist park near Toronto in Canada where the entire family can experience traditional naturist values in a modern setting. We are nestled among the natural wilderness of the Ontario Greenbelt and Oak Ridges Moraine. Our varied landscape includes open spaces, forests, ponds, streams and a small lake. We also have many recreational facilities. Our clubhouse provides year-round amenities including saunas and a whirlpool. Bare Oaks offers day-use memberships and seasonal campsites but also welcomes visitors and travellers.Some might use the terms nudist and nudism to describe us and what we do. But we prefer naturist and naturism because our creed is so much more than just taking your clothes off. It is a life philosophy with physical, psychological, environmental, social and moral benefits. We go beyond a mere recreational pursuit and promote ethical naturism. We endeavour to live a naturist life and nudity is key to body acceptance and an integral part of our naturist philosophy. As such, we are not clothing-optional. Clothing is worn only for protection. We give visitors a chance to adjust but everyone is expected make a decision as to whether they want to be naturists or not.Located between Toronto and the gateway to Ontario's cottage country, it is the perfect location to stay while visiting Toronto. A short drive south on Highway #404 gets you into Toronto in about 30 minutes.

I was a nudist newbie in 2019 when I discovered Bare Oaks (BO) in the Camping Ontario magazine. We camped a few times and fell In love with the park and Sutton area. In 2020, I bought a membership and I spent every day off and all my vacation time at Bare Oaks. I found peace and solace in the park. Naked running, biking, walking and exercising in nature is a phenomenal experience. The best part is the human experience. I found myself connecting with people on a honest level and real conversations at the social breakfasts, campfires, volleyball games, swimming, dog walks, potlucks etc. This is not just a naturalists park. It invites an individual to an experience like no other. It's about body positivity and feeling good in your own skin. The staff is welcoming, social and hard working. The park managers are competent, always visible and available to handle any situations or medical emergencies. This is not a clothing optional resort. The owners also resides here and they will tell you "clothing is contagious" so be prepared to bare all. (Clothing can be worn for protection and warmth). There are several different accommodations to suit everyone. It's here and yours to discover an experience of a lifetime.

We spent 3 days renting the cosy cabin , The cabin was aptly named , small but clean and well laid out with a BBq for privet use. The park itself was really clean and the staff and long term guests were welcoming and friendly. This was the perfect place to introduce by adult daughter to my naturist side. We had an amazing time and will be booking another trip !

As a relative newby to visiting Naturist resorts I very much appreciated the welcoming environment at Bare Oaks. This is my second visit. This year the first folks I met were on my arrival at my site. A couple of the permanents saw me arrive and quickly gave some recommendations on approach to my lot and helped me move the rather heavy picnic table to make room for my rig. The camp sites are not glamourous but they suit the location. I am travelling in a 36 foot motorhome and was able to get one of their 50amp sites. Mine was right beside the showers, which normally I would not want but here being by the showers was almost a social event. Everyone waved and said hello. The sites have power and water but no sewer. There is a honey wagon if you need... But with outdoor showers and washrooms it is easy to stretch your grey and black capacity. There is even a kitchen sink by the washrooms if you want to spare the water in your rig. The dump station is on the main road as you depart. From a naturist perspective it is easy to enjoy your entire stay in the nude, weather permitting. I was here for three days and wont be doing any laundry when I get home. Both the pool and the pond were comfortable temperatures for swimming and I spent plenty of time in both. If you are going to use the pond, bring a floaty, that is where things are most social. There was a nature trail, but the bugs were still omnipresent in July so I decided to wait until my next visit to explore those. The hot tub and saunas are closed due to COVID so I cannot comment on them. There were at least two locations for Ladder Ball and two volleyball nets. The mini putt course was under repair while I was there but looked like it could be a fun distraction. I was travelling as a single male, which I know for many is challenging at naturist resorts. I was always made to feel welcome at Bare Oaks and very much appreciate the efforts of the seasonals to say hello and make my visit a success. I have a second visit booked for 7 days and look forward to seeing the location over a busy weekend and sharing this resort with my bride.

Thank you so much for providing such a detailed review; others will appreciate it. And thank you for the top rating! Some of our campsites are indeed rather tight because they are from a time when most people had a tent or small trailer. Interestingly enough, some people prefer the ones in the centre which are the most crowded because they like the conviviality and sense of community. But we do realize that there is an enormous demand for campsites that we cannot meet. So we are working towards expanding in the future and those new sites will be more modern in design.

Enjoyed it all, great experience! Stayed in the large cabin which seemed quite new and well equipped. The lake with the water slide was a big attraction for us. The staff, especially at the bare bistro was very friendly. Typically we are not very social but we were fortunate to get to meet several of the regulars there. They were fun and the source for all sorts of memorable conversations. The only problem seemed to be the family of geese that lived at the pond (and their poop that was constantly being cleaned by the staff), which was a source of all sorts of humorous commentary and debate. Well run, clean and relaxing, highly recommended.
