This Naturist Resort is absolutely amazing for Naturists or for those exploring the lifestyle. Truly a "family" environment. From the young to the old.. we all share this experience. The grounds are wonderfully kept and the people here are wonderful and friendly. From just enjoying the sun to playing volleyball or the numerous activities available.. ALL people would love this...

My first experience going to a nudist camp was at Bare Oaks. While my boyfriend had been many times, he convinced me to take some time off my busy schedule and take a week to relax at Bare Oaks while he went to work in the mornings. My thoughts were... I'll just stay in the room all morning until he... More

We had booked a room in the clubhouse for a 5 night stay as part of our tour round Canada. On arrival we were disappointed with the appointment and size of the room, ( Naturist, I know, but on a touring holiday we had a lot of luggage). However the staff were excellent and offered us the grand cabin ,... More

The title says it all. This is an excellent naturist park, for members or visitors. We visited for 5 days in a touring motor home and loved it. It is a lovely setting in harmony with nature, with first class facilities. But what makes Bare Oaks special is the truly naturist ambiance. It is not clothing - optional apart from... More

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.

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.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park is a year-round naturist park near Toronto in Canada where the entire family can experience traditional naturist values in a modern setting. We are nestled among the natural wilderness of the Ontario Greenbelt and Oak Ridges Moraine. Our varied landscape includes open spaces, forests, ponds, streams and a small lake. We also have many recreational facilities. Our clubhouse provides year-round amenities including saunas and a whirlpool. Bare Oaks offers day-use memberships and seasonal campsites but also welcomes visitors and travellers.Some might use the terms nudist and nudism to describe us and what we do. But we prefer naturist and naturism because our creed is so much more than just taking your clothes off. It is a life philosophy with physical, psychological, environmental, social and moral benefits. We go beyond a mere recreational pursuit and promote ethical naturism. We endeavour to live a naturist life and nudity is key to body acceptance and an integral part of our naturist philosophy. As such, we are not clothing-optional. Clothing is worn only for protection. We give visitors a chance to adjust but everyone is expected make a decision as to whether they want to be naturists or not.Located between Toronto and the gateway to Ontario's cottage country, it is the perfect location to stay while visiting Toronto. A short drive south on Highway #404 gets you into Toronto in about 30 minutes. ... more   less
