Owner description: 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. Annual events include: Maple Syrup Festival, Springtime on the farm, Ghostwalks, Camper Halloween and Victorian Christmas. Please refer to official website for details as this information could be stale.

“Huge kid friendly area in an urban setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Bronte Creek Provincial Park provides a place for kids to run and play, and swim in the concrete pad in summer. It is also lovely for adult walks and hikes and has an historic farm house. Bring a picnic and enjoy - lots of toilets.

“Maple Syrup Festival is very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I took my grandchildren last March. It was a good time for young and old. Wagon rides. Historic buildings. And of course pancake breakfast with maple syrup. Tip: Dress warm, all outside.

“Oasis in the heart of suburbia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We take our dogs here several times a week to run in the leash free area. After a couple of hours chasing squirrels, sniffing every tree and bush, and greeting other dogs along the way - we're left with two extremely happy tired pups. If you live nearby it is worth buying an annual membership.

“Bronte Park”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Took my grandchildren to visit for the maple sugar festival. Adults and children had a great time. The fee to enter the park is nominal.
We also went to the Old Farmhouse at night and saw how people lived when there was no electricity.

“A Provincial Park in our backyard - we are so lucky.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

My kids love Bronte Creek Provincial Park - we have brought our trailer here a few times but this trip we opted for a yurt. They provide you with bunk beds for sleeping 6, a bbq, picnic table and table and chair inside. Our dog was not allowed to stay in the yurt so it was just us girls!

We visited the playbarn and farm which have all sorts of farm animals to visit. I like the goats but my kids like the pigs and rabbits. The Playbarn is for kids 10 year and younger -- they could play in there for hours!

One thing you need to know before camping at Bronte Creek Park - is that the pool and playbarn and most of the trails are only accessible from the Burloak drive side. They have recently added play equipment to the campground (this helps) and they are working on a few trails - but most of the kid fun is to be had off of burloak. this mean you need to have a car to get there. If the traffic is busy on the QEW it could take awhile.

We have visited for the Maple Syrup Festival and the Christmas Program before and had a great time - they do a good job. I hear they have an outdoor rink - must try that this year.
