There are a few considerations of etiquette which are accepted among
most nudists. They are listed here for reference and for the benefit of
It is a good idea to secure an invitation before dropping in on a nudist club.
This usually means writing or telephoning ahead of time. Strangers who show up
unexpectedly may be turned away.
Honesty is the best policy. If you are sincere, most clubs will be happy to have
you visit. Deceptive stories about why you want to become a nudist are not
necessary. Give accurate information in your initial letter to a club and on
your membership application.
At a lot of clubs, married people must join with their spouse. Some clubs have a
no singles policy while others are more liberal towards single members. It is
always better to ask in advance rather than to run the risk of being turned away
at the gate. In most instances, single couples (male and female) are just as
welcome as married couples.

Be as friendly and as open as possible and others will do the same.
What to Bring on your first visit:
Bring along two towels, one to sit on at all times when you are nude and
one to dry with after a shower, hot tub soak or a dip in our lake.
You might want to bring along any refreshments you might need or want such
as you might bring on a day at the beach or a picnic.
Bring sunscreen lotion with the appropriate SPF factor and by all means
use it. No sense bringing home a sunburn as your first visit souvenir!
Last, but not least, bring yourself. That first visit is the
toughest but you won't know you like it until you try it and we guarantee -
