Prices reduced for overnight camping
In reviewing our prices for overnight camping, it was clear that we were discouraging overnight visitors with our prices. As such, the overnight camping prices have been severely reduced. But keep in mind that if some prices seem ridiculously low (e.g. $5/night) it’s because they don’t include the ground fees. See our rates at: www.bareoaks.ca/Bare-Oaks/Rates.html ...and yes, we do accept Canadian Tire money 😉 ...

Seasonal Water is ON
The seasonal water system is now working so all trailers now have access to running water. We need to remind you that although the water is filtered and chlorinated, we do not meet the Ontario Ministry of the Environment’s standards for drinking water. The York Region Health Inspector tested our water in March and told us that we met regulation 252 because he believed that we were a trailer park or campground with less than five service connections.

Mosquito & Black-fly Control
Bare Oaks is committed to reducing nuisance of mosquitoes and black flies on the property. However, we are not willing to use any chemicals that poison our environment or harms humans and animals. East Gwillimbury has a mosquito control program that uses a non-chemical, biological agent called Bti to reduce the number of mosquitoes at the larval stage. Bti is essentially a non-toxic substance found naturally in nature. Bti is a biological control in the form of a bacteria that quickly kills the mosquito and black fly at the larvae stage, that is, before they develops into a flying, biting ...

Recycling
We now have large recycling bins for paper, glass, plastic bottles and cans. The recycling bins are located near the clubhouse. Please make sure to sort your recyclables in the appropriate container. Remember, every aluminum can you recycle saves enough electricity to keep a TV going for 4-5 hours! Also, please do not put any chemicals, pesticides, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, used oil, paint or other hazardous waste in the dumpster. Those chemicals will contaminate the environment if dumped in a landfill. They need to be taken to the hazardous waste depot. Computers, microwaves, smoke detectors, computer monitors and other electronics ...
