Provincial Park - we are near by and natural. Located between Oakville and Burlington, Ontario. Great place to test our your camping skills or equipment. 145 electric service sites, filling and dumping station, laundry equipment, playgrounds, yurts, programs (summer), trails and a leash free area. Campers have access to day-use area (off Burloak) but my drive 6-11km to separate entrance. Day-use area off Burloak Drive has been a family favorite for decades. 13 km of trails, 11 reservable picnic shelters, children's play barn and farm, 1,8 acre outdoor swimming pool (additional fee), family and group education programs. In the Winter enjoy cross country skiing or snowshoeing, outdoor ice skating. Annual events include: Maple Syrup Festival, Springtime on the farm, Ghostwalks, Camper Halloween and Homestead Christmas. Please refer to official website for details as this information could be stale.

We have been to the day use area of Bronte Creek park a few times before, but this was our first time camping at Bronte Creek provincial park.

I grew up going to Bronte creek for hiking, cycling, picnics, swimming, skating, and and other activities. I recently returned for a summer visit with my sister and her family, which includes two young sons; my nephews loved the play barn, the live animals, and the animal exhibits. We had a fun-filled day and I look forward to returning with... More

I personally favour the wide-ish trails in this park, can't wait to take my bike there sometime. Still great for hiking, planning to go again this weekend!

Thanks for your review of Bronte Creek Provincial Park! We have over 13km of trails and paths to explore. Most are great for walking only a few can be biked. In the winter people snowshoe or ski the trails. The wide internal road is a 5 km loop - lots of people like to jog, run or bike it. Keep... More

My parents took me here as a kid for picnics. Came in the winter to walk my dogs as an adult. Brought my son here as a small child. This place has provided so many great memories over the years!

It is so great that the park has been a part of your family for generations! We are finding more and more kids (now adults) are returning with their kids --- some things have changed (made safer) but for the most part it is lust like it was 25 -30 years ago. We are so glad that we can be... More

The trails can be fun, and there is a lot of wildlife around them. There open fields and picnic areas, where you can BBQ or simply lay down your picnic. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to to write a review about your recent trip to Bronte Creek Provincial Park. The Maple Syrup Festival is amazing ... though it is offered only in the SPRING. The park does have so much to offer... you need to visit in the winter for the rink and maybe camp overnight in the summer.... More

We went this past weekend on Sunday and started off on the camping side to check things out for thoughts on camping in the summer. The charge of $17.00 was pretty high I thought. The person at the front gate didn't seem very happy and had trouble answering some basic questions. Once we got in, most of the camp grounds... More
