o Singles Information. This is a list of the singles policies of the clubs and resorts in the United States. (This list is being updated constantly.)

o Chattanooga Naturist Club. (Yahoo club). 2011. The Chattanooga Naturists Group (CNG) is a group on Yahoo (chattanooganaturists) that is moderated and well maintained. It is composed of nudists/naturists within driving distance of Chattanooga, TN. Members use the website to post messages and photos about their experiences and get-togethers so they can better enjoy and share the healthy benefits of this wonderful lifestyle. No spam or sexually explicit content or links to such in your profile will be allowed. If it doesn't pertain to nudism/naturism, it is removed. A note by the moderator on the home page shows that: 1) Membership requires approval by the moderator, 2) You must have a viewable profile filled out for membership, 3) Empty profiles will not be considered for membership, and 4) Your age and location must be shown in your profile. NO PROFILE = NO MEMBERSHIP. NO EXCEPTIONS. The group is composed of members of all ages. Several members bring their children to the functions. The group has several gatherings during the year. Gatherings range from going to dinner at restaurants in the Chattanooga area (textile, of course); outings on the Tennessee River, including a nude excursion on an old paddlewheeler boat owned and operated by one of the members; organized trips to nudist resorts; meetings at individual members' homes; and, several gatherings at one individual's home on the Cumberland Plateau, who has a large enough area to accomodate a good number of nudists in an open-air meadow. There's also a place to sit under a roof if it happens to rain. This area has a wood-fired hot tub, sauna, volleyball court, and an adjoining campground with full hookups in walking distance to the nude use area. This place is the favorite location for a lot of the group members. At each gathering here there is a pot-luck meal, where if you leave hungry, it's your own fault. One gathering even included a hot-air balloon ride, nude! So you can see, the group is active. Visit their site for more information.
o Cherokee Lodge and Resort. is open again as a family nudist resort.Cherokee is a Family Oriented and Singles Friendly haven for people of all shapes, sizes, and ages to escape from the stresses of daily life. The scenic, quiet, back to nature atmosphere is where many visit and friends stay. Visit the site for additional information.
o Cherokee Lodge and Resort Report. June 2012. Cherokee Lodge and Resort continues to grow and improve. In the two years since my last visit, the Davis's have expanded both RV hookup areas, enlarged the pool sundeck, stocked their pond for catch and release fishing, and cleared away tent camping grounds beside the pond. The casual, "undress to destress" atmosphere makes one want to stay and never leave. The staff even remembered me, and I was also able to book the same lodge room that I had enjoyed previously. Checking in early in the week, I found the resort quiet, as expected. More guests arrived as the week progressed. Everyone I met was friendly and fun to talk with. I can't wait to go back. The resort is easy to reach, rates are reasonable, and other activities are nearby. Thanks Poohbear for the report!
o Cherokee Lodge and Resort Report. September 2010. Cherokee Lodge and Resort in Crossville, Tennessee has been my favorite summer escape since I attended my first nudist gathering there several years ago. Since then, Cherokee has constructed new facilities, hosted regional and national conventions and experienced its fair share of ups and downs, including a short-lived change in ownership and a brief closure. Rather than evidence of instability, the ongoing evolution of Cherokee is a testament to the resilience of authentic nudist values and the possibility of expansion to new and diverse audiences. Many resorts seem to stagnate, the established members defining the club so rigidly as to inadvertently exclude newcomers and stamp out fresh growth. Other resorts surrender to financial considerations and quietly (or openly) welcome swingers and host sexually-titillating activities. Owner Danny Davis and wife Donna have always been reliable champions of the family-oriented nudist ideology, quietly maintaining their club's commitment to traditional nudism with little regard to the temptation to make more money or build larger crowds by altering their ideals. As a result, there is something quite interesting happening at Cherokee, a subtle trend that may be overlooked by the casual observer, but a development that is quite profound for anyone concerned about the future of the nudist movement: Cherokee is becoming a destination for first-time nudists. Swingers are virtually nonexistent at Cherokee. Perhaps the presence of nearby swinger-friendly resorts has removed this demographic, or perhaps it's the fact that Cherokee is and always has been a family operation, with no less than three generations of the Davis family tending to the office, keeping the grass trimmed and providing the music for the weekend events. First-time nudists! This summer's crowds have been extraordinarily different than any I have encountered at this or any other club. Young families and students seem to blend effortlessly with the retirees. A twenty year-old and an eighty year-old exchange college experiences. An elderly couple passes by a young woman pushing a stroller. There are fresh faces and first-time visitors every weekend. Each of these newcomers to nudism appears to have sought out Cherokee as a means of escaping the technology and the gadgets and the traffic jams and all the other complexities of everyday life that rob us of our humanity. No thrill seekers. No hidden agendas. These are people who simply needed to walk around lakes and swat away mosquitoes and experience something real in a world that is becoming increasingly "virtual." After being out of operation for a couple of summers, Cherokee is back, and it is most definitely rebuilding, attracting a entirely new set of members with the same old-fashioned ideals that made it a great club to begin with. When I recently asked Sally, the office manager how best to announce myself when using the front gate intercom, she replied "Honey, you just yell 'Mom! I'm home!'" As implied by her words, when you visit Cherokee, you aren't simply paying to use the grounds for a day, you are being welcomed into a terrific and fascinating family, a family that is always open to new members. Thanks mutantcamper for the report!
o Cherokee Lodge and Resort, Trip Report. September, 2010, by Poohbear. This large, rustic resort near Crossville, TN, is easily reached from Interstate 40 and only minutes from the exit. The resort consists of severeal hundred acres with easily hiked trailes in gently rolling wooded hills. The roads, parking, and RV-hookup areas are well graveled and even lighted enough to get around at night. Both the swimming pool and hot tub are in-ground, heated, and open 24/7. Basic cabins line the road near the lodge, a large, three-story building with rooms upstairs and a restaurant, dance floor, and open patio downstairs. There's also a friendly little place at the exit that makes and delivers their own pizza and sandwiches. Larger restaurants are an easy drive to the next exit. I arrived the Wednesday after Labor Day, and, as this is the "off season," the place was almost deserted. The weather had turned unseasonably cool and wet so the only other person in the lodge left early. I had the great room, wide-screen direct TV, and central bath all to myself. Separate facilities with heated outdoor showers are near the pool and campgrounds. Saturday night we had a dance with staff deejay. The owners opened the kitchen with a short menu and also served breakfast early Sunday morning. I had a delightful time! I met three younger couples who asked me to sit with them at the dance. They were all mature, experienced nudist campers and helped me enjoy my first nudist dance and first real social nudism. They were fun to be with and we had a good time. Later they had a campfire near the cabins. The fresh air, hiking, and dancing caught up with me and I sleepily excused myself early. I can't wait to go back. Singles are welcome, one can be as nude as they wish, the staff was friendly, and costs are reasonable. Thanks Poohbear for the report!
