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.

My family has attended the Bronte Creek Maple Syrup festival during the spring. It's an educational tour that explains the development of maple syrup process over time. The best part is the Pancake House where you can purchase a pancake meal and enjoy it with fresh maple syrup. Also on site is a children's barn, full of slides, mats, and... More

I have not visited Bronte Creek in about thirty years and it was nice to go back with my own family and spend the day there. We decided to go to the swimming pool first and then venture out the rest of the park. The pool hasn't changed. The bottom of the pool needs repair work. It seemed to fading... More

Quite a nice place. Very friendly and capable staff. Clean rest rooms and showers. Large sites and well separated from your neighbors. The neighborhood was quiet. On the not so good side, power receptacles are very poorly placed. If your motor home does not have an extension you'll not hook up in most sites. The sites are huge but we... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent visit to Bronte Creek Provincial Park's Campground. Sorry that you found one of the few sites where the hydro post is not conveniently located. This is not the norm for Bronte Creek sites.

This park is split into two sections one for camping, snowshoeing, hiking and the other for winter activities and summer activities. You have to pay to enter but a season pass is worth getting. You only pay on the day use side I and you only pay if you enter by car. Only drawback is that there isn't a brdige... More

A very nice park with private camp sites of good size. We were there to early in the season for the attractions to be open. The washrooms were kept clean and tidy but only a couple of showers were available for use at this time. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The most difficult part of the trip was...

This park was perfect for a Saturday afternoon snowshoeing trip. There are many lookout points along the trails- a great place to stop and take in the scenery. The trails seemed very private which is nice when you want to be out in nature, getting a break from the city.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your WINTER trip to Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Seems funny reading about snowshoeing when it is 32 degrees outside.

My favourite place for a half-day walk. The west side is farmland as it looked 50 or more years ago, with old orchards, meadows, a small forest, and an artificial hill for toboganning in the winter. There is a very large clean swimming pool with ample parking. The Bronte Creek divides the west from the east part and is accessible... More
