Closed to Visitors

The Government of Ontario has ordered all non essential businesses to close. So effective immediately, Bare Oaks is closed to visitors.

The restaurant is already closed. The office and store will now be closed as well. During our posted business hours, we will still be answering phones, responding to emails, as well as accepting packages & deliveries.

Members who have a campsite can still get through the gate to access their trailer. But as we said before, please do not come if you are sick, been exposed to someone who is sick, or have recently returned from foreign travel.

This order is for 14 days. We will update you as soon as we get more information. At this time, the impact on our operations will be minimal.

Whether at Bare Oaks or anywhere else, we remind you to:
  • Wash your hands well and often with soap and water, or with alcohol based hand sanitizer. (don’t forget to wash your wrists, under your fingernails and in between your fingers)
  • Cough or sneeze into your arm or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue and throw the tissue out immediately. Wash your hands afterwards.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice social distancing: no hugs, handshakes, kiss, etc...
  • Don't share utensils, pens, electronics, etc...
  • Avoid crowds and groups

We are open


We have had several people inquire about whether we going to close. We are open and planning on staying open. Our wide open spaces are great if you want to get away from people. For those who have a trailer here, it might be the ideal place to isolate yourself for a bit.

We have taken precautions to reduce the risk of spreading the infection:
  • We have always cleaned the public areas regularly. But we have added the additional step of disinfecting "touch" areas (door knobs, locks, counters, handrails, etc...) three times per day.
  • Sick team members are always encouraged to stay home but we will now be more proactive about it.
  • We have provided additional training for the team.
  • We have always had hand sanitizer available and will continue to do so until the supply runs out.
  • We have posted information form York Region Health.
March 22 edit: The hot tub and sauna have been closed to ensure proper social distancing between people. No gatherings in the the clubhouse are allowed for the same reason.

Whether at Bare Oaks or anywhere else, we encourage you to:
  • Wash your hands well and often with soap and water, or with alcohol based hand sanitizer. (don’t forget to wash your wrists, under your fingernails and in between your fingers)
  • Cough or sneeze into your arm or cover your mouth and nose with a tissue and throw the tissue out immediately. Wash your hands afterwards.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
