Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park is a naturist/nudist club located in southern Ontario, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Toronto. It encompasses typical amenities for day users, 110 serviced campsites, five cabins, and five guest rooms.[1]

Background[edit]

The park was founded as the Toronto Helios Society.

It is situated on 20.23 hectares (50.0 acres) of privately owned, forested land at the edge of the Oak Ridges Moraine, within the Ontario Greenbelt. Harrison Creek borders the northern boundary while the Black River bisects the property. There are also two ponds and a small lake.[1]

The club is recognized by the International Naturist Federation,[2] the Federation of Canadian Naturists,[3] the Fédération Québécoise de Naturisme,[4] the American Association for Nude Recreation,[5] and The Naturist Society.[6]

Bare Oaks adheres to naturist principles and rejects clothing-optional policies in favour of mandating nudity for all members and visitors.[7]
