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.

It costs $17 per car to enter Bronte Provincial Park for the day. If you are looking for a pleasant stroll in nature and don't live within walking distance of the Park, don't bother driving here. There are dozens of places in the locality that are pleasanter and cost nothing. If a carload of you plan to spend the entire... More

The electricity connection is sometimes far from the vehicule. No ater connection.The other problem is related to the bathrooms that are located very far from the sites. Not practical if you have...

Great park, and i love to walk the trails, but, i have to question how this place is run. Summer is the busiest time of the year for the park, they have lots of staff working, but nothing seems to get done, except for cutting the grass. Some of the trails have now been closed, due to the many dead... More

Great time for the family. We have visited during every season, and for most annual events over the last 8 years. The young kids love the play barn.

Enjoy different areas of park. Barn with areas to climb and animals to visit. Plus outdoor playground. Then walk over to farmhouse where there is a hands on nature museum and more animals. Then walk to outdoor pool area - busy on weekends though.

Stunning Landscapes and a fabulous trail system. So much to take in and so close to home. I've been to this Park many times over the years but it's still just as breathtaking as the first time.
