We've been numerous times over the last five summers and have enjoyed every visit. Very relaxing and welcoming, and the nudity aspect is most inviting. If anyone has trepidation about going to a naturist park, try this one and your fears will be erased.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review! It is especially nice to hear from such long-term visitors. We've done a lot in the last 5 years and I appreciate your patience with inconveniences you may have experienced as we've been building and renovating. More

My wife and I are relatively new to naturism, but we have been long-time campers and thought we'd try vacationing this summer to a naturist resort where we could enjoy the best of both worlds. We Googled a number of resorts within a reasonable driving distance from home and found Bare Oaks offered just what we were looking for. What... More

We've been trying to get to Bare Oaks for several years and finally made it. We were impressed with the grounds and the attention to landscaping. The people here are friendly...just like naturists everywhere. As others have mentioned there is a focus on naturism here not just getting naked. We'll definitely return if only for a day visit.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others and for your kind, supportive words. I'm glad to hear that after trying to get here for years, we did not disappoint! I sometimes worry that our reputation might create unrealistic expectations. So it is very satisfying to hear that you had such a good visit. More

This was our first visit to Bare Oaks but by no means our first to a naturist resort we have visited many including U.K. USA and Europe . The staff are friendly and very helpful and it was a good to see they practice what they preach and wore no clothes. We got a discount for being BN members in... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is very flattering to hear we can be compared to naturist resorts in Europe! I agree that we can have more variety with the restaurant menu.

My wife and I visited many naturist resorts, not only in Canada, but USA and Europe. Generally, naturist resorts are fun, relaxing and friendly places, and I can not say that we had bad experience in any of them. However, Bare Oaks is one of few that we visit regularly. There is something special about this place that we love... More

This is probably the ONLY naturist park where you will find the owner/management living the naturist philosophy at work. Unlike most parks (all that I have been to), when you check in, the staff are generally wearing clothes.... NOT here. At Bare Oaks, they practice what they preach. I rate the property as "very good" only because of it's size.... More

This is, by far, the BEST nudist/naturist resort I've ever been to in all of Ontario! I stayed from July 11-18, 2014, pitched a tent and camped out near Jarvis Pond. Despite the mosquitoes, the whole experience was truly relaxing, unwinding and the amenities available are amazing! So much to do and see, very reasonable prices and you can even... More
