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.

I would have given it five stars if there was a way to get from the camping area of the park to the outdoor swimming pool without going on the highway. Excellent location: in 15 minutes drive and avoiding the traffic you get to experience the nature so close to home.

The skating rink used to be so fun- one of the few out door rinks left. I hope they are going to bring it back. Summer time is a great place to walk around- bring a ball / Frisbee and play with friends and family.

Thank you Hockey M for taking the time to write a review of your experiences at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. The outdoor rink operation was getting increasingly more challenging (to hold the ice during mild weather) and fewer visitors making use of the rink each year. With these challenges and the costly repairs needed it was determined that this facility... More

We visited the campground with our trailer on the Easter Weekend. Both Park Staff and Campground Staff are doing a great job! Very hospitable indeed! The campground is on itself a great site. good and clean bathrooms and showers and well maintained. The environment of the campground suffers a bit of the proximity of a housing area. It just does...

Thank you for taking time to tell us about your recent trip to the park and campground. At this time of year the only 2 loops of the campground that are open... do indeed have a view of the neighbouring roof tops. In May the other 2 loops will be open and they offer a more traditional "camp" feel. Also... More

If you are from Alberta or even Saskatchewan, don't waste your money in this park. The cost is $17 per car which is almost as much as a national park day pass. This is not as nice as the national parks we have out in the West! It's just a large park with different trails. If you live in Calgary...North... More
