Campsites Available


Last year, several people were disappointed to find out that there were no long-term campsites left at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. We're happy to announce that there are a few opportunities in Beckett Circle for people looking for a year-round campsite. Here are your options:

1. Take an empty site

We opened several sites this year by clearing some brush and adding access to electricity & water in some areas. In addition, we had a couple of people give up their site. During the busy season, it was hard to figure out where we stood because we were always booked with visitors and we took so many new memberships.  Now that things have settled down, we did an inventory of campsites and found that we can book a few more long-term sites and still keep 25 open sites for short term use.

The members who previously asked to be on a waiting list are being contacted first. The available sites will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. So if you interested in a campsite, please contact the office right away to place yourself on the list. Email info@BareOaks.ca or call (905) 473-6060.

2. Purchase a used trailer on a site

There is only one trailer for sale right now. It is on an large premium lot that backs onto the forest. See www.BareOaks.ca/Bare-Oaks/Used_Trailers.html for details.

3. Purchase a new trailer on a site.

There is one large, private campsite available on Vaïs Lane. In order to get this site, you must purchase a new park model trailer (in any configuration you want) through the Bare Oaks office.

Bare Oaks is happy to promote the sale of park model trailers from Woodland Park and Northlander. You can see sample trailer plans at www.bareoaks.ca/Bare-Oaks/New_Trailers.html and on the Northlander Website.




Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park has 110 serviced campsites on 50 acres. The number of sites is very limited for two reasons:
  1. Several parts of our property are environmentally sensitive and must be protected. 
  2. We want to keep our natural spaces open for our members to enjoy.
To ensure that all members can spend the occasional weekend or vacation at Bare Oaks, and because we want to continue to welcome visitors from all over the world, we keep 25 campsites open for short-term use.

Walking on water




Please remember that when ice is covering the water, its thickness can vary greatly and conditions can change quickly. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

The presence of an ice rink or people on the ice is not a guarantee of safety. Ice should be at least 10 cm thick before venturing on it. Stay away from cracks, seams, pressure ridges, slushy areas and darker areas that signify thinner ice. Do not congregate in one area. Do not venture onto the ice alone or in the dark.

EVEN IF THE TEMPERATURE IS COLD, NO ICE IS WITHOUT RISK
