I stayed in one of the rooms in the clubhouse with a queen bed. It was a wonderful experience, all of the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Almost every time I crossed paths with one of them they would smile and say hello. The facility was extremely well kept and any concerns were promptly addressed. The Bare Bistro's menu selection is decent and the food they prepare is fresh and fair priced, I was pleasantly surprised by how much food I could get for less than $10. The only issue due to their rural location is the poor internet connection, it made keeping up with emails from work and school a tad difficult but it also forced me to get out and interact with other people and make use of the several amenities that the park has. I highly recommend that any visitors use the many opportunities available to learn about naturism that that park offers. Also I'd like to suggest that the park offer a method of communicating activities with d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing visitors other than using the parks PA system. I have to keep asking people around me what was just announced. I may have just missed the signage indicating the times but it was difficult to find that information anywhere in the park without having to ask the front desk.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
