The sun is out and the predicted high is 26 degrees Celsius but the thermometer reads 30 on the front deck. The leaves are just starting to sprout and the Trilliums are blooming everywhere! As I update this Blog from the front deck, someone walks by and the fragrance of suntan lotion reaches me. Now it really feels like summer!!Read More →

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 😉Read More →

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. However, because we are a campground with year-round use and more than 5 connections, we must meet regulation 170. (Municipal Residential Drinking Water Systems) We are currentlyRead More →

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 more men in north AmericanRead More →

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 adult. The larvae are destroyedRead More →

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 are also hazardous waste becauseRead More →

It was great to see how many people turned out for the hot weather and sunshine on Sunday! Other than the fact the leaves were missing and the grass was brown, it felt like a hot July day. It is also clear that we will have some parking challenges when things get really busy. It’s certainly a great problem to have!Read More →

Many people have asked for expanded food services. When members and visitors come up for the day, they want to relax and sometimes that means having someone else do the cooking and cleanup. That’s certainly true of country clubs. They all have restaurants. Like them, we would like to have a restaurant and maybe even a liquor license in the near future to improve our members’ experience at Bare Oaks. Unfortunately, restaurants in country clubs and campgrounds don’t make any money either. The challenge for a restaurant at Bare Oaks is having enough sales to support itself given that it won’t have any walk-in trafficRead More →
