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.

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

My family stayed at this park for five nights. The park proved to be perfect for our purposes.

This park is very conveniently situated close to the city. It has nice walking trails and various terrains. Many activities and events throughout the year.

BCPP is an amazing facility during all 4 seasons. In my younger days, before children, I enjoyed walking the many trails; later when I had 3 children very close in age, it was the perfect place to take them on my own, without assistance, where they could run freely and happily and with complete safety. My husband and I spent... More

This park is a gem of trails and quiet nature right next door to a growing urban centre. The festivals are fantastic. I love the skating rink and the trails at this time of year. I went to the Maple sugar festival last March and it was great fun. A return to simpler things without travelling to far.
