The new Bare Oaks map
We have just posted, in the amenities section, the new illustrated map of Bare Oaks. It will help visitors visualize the many features of the property.

It’s also a great way to show a large space because you don’t have to worry about scale. You can see a larger format version by clicking here ...

Singles policy
As a result of a question/criticism on an internet discussion forum about the Bare Oaks single policy, I posted the following message. I thought that others would also be interested in reading it. Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park does not have any rules against single men. There are many single male members and a few single females. However, we do feel the need to maintain a gender balance. Theoretically, that could mean that we would exclude single women should they make up more than 60% of the membership. Realistically, I understand that only men will be affected. There are always ...
