The government of Ontario has released its “Roadmap to Reopen”. The initial stage which they call “Before Step One” allows us to open to visitors and members for day use of “outdoor recreational amenities”.Read More →

Nobody wants another lockdown!  To prevent that we need: People to maintain physical distance and wear masks indoors To do a lot of testing to identify problems early Tracing to warn anyone who is exposed and prevent further spread In order to make the third objective more effective, we need as many people as possible to install the Canadian contact tracing app on their smartphone. It’s free and if you come Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park and show the app you get $10 off your day fees when you visit in August. Members get a $10 credit on their account if they show the app onRead More →

We now have a page listing what is currently open at Bare Oaks. We will keep updating it as government regulations and our own processes change. https://www.bareoaks.ca/covid-19/Read More →

The provincial government announced today new regulations that allow Bare Oaks members with a trailer to access it starting on Saturday May 16th. The announcement authorizes “access for trailers and recreational vehicles whose owners have a full season contract.” At this time, we still cannot accept any leisure visits for motel rooms, cabins, or short-term camping. We expect this to change in the very near future. If you make a reservation and we have to cancel it because of government restrictions, we will give you a full refund. If you cancel the reservation then our normal cancellation policy still applies. On Tuesday May 19th the province willRead More →

On March 23rd the Ontario Government ordered all non-essential businesses to close for 14 days. That order was extended into May and could be extended again. The good news is that we have “flattened the curve” and things seem to be under control. The government has announced that they have a 3 stage plan to allow businesses to reopen. That is not to be confused with their 3 phase plan; the 3 stages are part of phase 2. Confused yet? Here it is if you want to read it all: https://files.ontario.ca/mof-framework-for-reopening-our-province-en-2020-04-27.pdf But all you need to know right now is that: There are NO dates ThereRead More →

The Government of Ontario has ordered all non essential businesses to close. So effective immediately, Bare Oaks is closed to visitors. The restaurant is already closed. The office and store will now be closed as well. During our posted business hours, we will still be answering phones, responding to emails, as well as accepting packages & deliveries. Members who have a campsite can still get through the gate to access their trailer. But as we said before, please do not come if you are sick, been exposed to someone who is sick, or have recently returned from foreign travel. This order is for 14 days.Read More →

We have had several people inquire about whether we going to close. We are open and planning on staying open. Our wide open spaces are great if you want to get away from people. For those who have a trailer here, it might be the ideal place to isolate yourself for a bit. We have taken precautions to reduce the risk of spreading the infection: We have always cleaned the public areas regularly. But we have added the additional step of disinfecting “touch” areas (door knobs, locks, counters, handrails, etc…) three times per day. Sick team members are always encouraged to stay home but weRead More →
