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.

Why is this provincial park separated - one side of Bronte Creek is camping and the other side is day use. When we camped here to use any other facility we had to drive 10 minutes to get to the pool, barn, leash free area etc... Build a bridge over the Creek! Also if you want to use it as... More

It is inconvenient that there is no in park access from one side to the other. We the staff also have to travel out and around the park to do our jobs on a daily basis. There are lots of major factors limiting a bridge including location that would be easily accessible from both sides, bank stability, funds and the... More

Loved the hiking and if you get a chance go there during the Maple Syrup festival for the pancake breakfast in the spring.

This park offers great facilities including a lease free area for your canine friend(s). You can experience the "farm in the city" effect as you walk through what was once a piece of Ontario farmland. Now it is transformed into a user friendly place while maintaining a rural atmosphere. This is a very nice spot for a leisurely stroll or... More

We ended up at the park, after an afternoon drive on one of the glorious out of season days this year. We ended up at the dog park. It is really a beautiful, peaceful place. The dog loved it, and it was great to walk. Unfortunate that a number of dog droppings were not picked up - not the park's... More

I travelled to Bronte Creek Prov Park from almost 2 hrs away and it was really worth the drive. We specifically came for the Victorian Christmas Event and we were there from 10-4pm and could have stayed longer but it was closing. My kids, ages 6 and 7, enjoyed all the special events like the crafts, food craft, tractor ride,... More

Really cool spot if you don't like the mall line-ups for Santa and wanna look back to Christmas 100 years ago. Make it a 1/2 day experience, get your $17 admission fee's worth. Step 1: special crafts and Victorian games in the welcome barn. Make a birdfeeder, colour up some antlers, play some games. Step 2: visit the Victorian house,... More

Always fun at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. Does not matter what time of year. Summer there is the great outdoor pool. Fall to see all the fall colours. Winter is Christmas on the farm or skating on the outdoor rink. Spring time is Maple Syrup time.

As resident's of Oakville, Bronte Creek PP is convenient for us and we have camped there for the past three summers. We feel fortunate to have a Provincial Park on our door step. We like the park for camping and the shower and toilet facilities are generally well maintained. However, what disappoints us each time we visit the park is... More

Bronte Creek is a great place to escape the city and get out into nature! I would highly recommend if you need to just get out into some peace!
