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 Bonita Nudist Resort is a family oriented clothing optional park located at the southern gateway to the Finger Lakes in south central N.Y. This modern 100 acre facility is nestled in deep woods, on a ridge overlooking the lovely village of Candor, New York. Singles Friendly Facility. Visit the site for additional information.
o Bonita Nudist Resort. August 2007. I recently visited Bonita Nudist Resort in Candor NY--about 20 miles south of Ithaca. This park was formerly known as Buckridge and was purchased by Jerry and Annie Troeger a few years ago. The old Buckridge was, for a brief time, somewhat of a magical place. The people were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make a newcomer feel welcome. There were lots of fun social events including regular campfires where everyone socialized, many potlucks, and lots of other fun events. Under the previous owner, the park began to experience problems in the early 2000's--most of the regulars left as a result of management policies and the infrastructure was deteriorating. Some of these problems got a lot of publicity thru the internet. I am extremely happy to report that under Jerry and Annie's new ownership the park is returning to its former glory. During my weekend visit the park was full of people, almost all of them new to the park in the last year or two. Everyone was friendly and happy. I enjoyed participating in one of the campfires which continue to be a regular feature, along with an excellent potluck luau. The Troegers have made major investments in the infrastructure, including a completely new water system, new sleeping cabins, a pool cabana, a new game room. a new pool chlorination system, a new septic for the dump station, a new office and a completely remodeled snack bar. There is free wifi in the club house area, and the entire premise is immaculate. A completely new electrical system is partially done--when finished it should support 30 and perhaps 50 amp service (today there is only rather poor 20 amp service). The snack bar serves breakfast and sandwiches, burgers, etc during the day. The park continues to be a very tranquil place with lots of woods and trails. There is a lake for swimming and fishing in addition to the heated pool and hot tub. There are lots of sites for tents and small to medium trailers. There are about 6-8 big rig sites and all but one were available for transients (however don't plan to use your air conditioning until the new electric is completed sometime in the future). All the sites have water and electric. The park is singles friendly and offers discounts to AANR members. The Troeger family does all the work themselves and do not rely on volunteer labor--demands for volunteer labor was one of the old Buckridge problems that drove people away. If you are looking for a friendly, family oriented, laid back, clean and neat, semi rustic and tranquil nudist park, Bonita is for you. Thanks Phoonist for the report.
o Brushwood is a campground and meeting place and the host site for Sirius Rising, Starwood and other annual festivals and gatherings. Brushwood offers rustic, secluded, clothing-optional camping on 180 mostly wooded acres near the town of Sherman in rural Chautauqua County, New York. The campground is equipped with hot and cold showers, flush toilets, and a swimming pool and hot tub. We have two covered pavilions near the main camping area, giving us several thousand square feet of "rain or shine" outdoor space for performances, workshops, lectures and ceremonies. We also have a heated indoor lodge for year-round use, and heated indoor sleeping accomodations for about a dozen people. Brushwood's camping fees are $10.00 per night, or $5.50 for a day visit. Heated, indoor lodging is $15.00 per night. Visitors are welcome and should call ahead at (716) 761 6750. Visit the site for additional information.
o "Buffalo in the Buff". Buffalo_Naturists is a group to promote naturist activities, such as nude swims, visits to nudist resorts, and other naked non-sexual get-togethers, in the Western New York, Niagara, and Buffalo area. We’re open-minded and expect the same from our members. We do not discriminate on sexual practices. It’s irrelevant. So, if you are a swinger or gay or bisexual or straight, prude or lewd, whatever, you’re welcome to join us. All we ask is respect for the other person. Basically, we enjoy the freedom of being nude, and, if it is new to you, we are inviting you to try nudity for its own sake. We are a very active group. Sometimes it is controversial! Our site has lots & lots of links to other websites. We have a steadily growing membership, both on the site and in person when we have an event. Please come see what we do and what we talk about. Visit the site for additional information.
o CarbonButtPrints (previously Frogtown at the pond and Steph's Pond) is a "gem in the rough" located on the grounds of Steph’s Pond, a clothing optional retreat 1/2 hour from Rochester, N.Y. Visit the website for additional information.

o Empire Haven Nudist Resort & Campground is a family oriented nudist park located in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State. Consider what you can find here... 97 scenic acres 1,600 feet above sea level, clean mountain air, a refreshing setting for a full range of leisure activities and planned activities (May - September).

o Empire Haven - Northeast Naturist Festival. August 2013. Once again I attended the Northeast Naturist Festival, which is held annually at Empire Haven in central New York. This year's festival was from July 30 through August 4. Morley Schloss, who also organizes the Mid-Winter Festival, has been organizing this event since the 1990's. Unfortunately attendance was down again this year. The rainy weather was probably a factor, but attendance has been falling over the years. There were still enough people to make it worthwhile. As for the weather, the weekend before there were torrential rains which left Empire Haven very muddy, especially in the camping area. Tuesday, the opening day, was cloudly and cool, there was rain Thursday and Friday, but Wednesday and Saturday were nice and sunny. There was the usual generous mix of workshops, meetings, and other events. The workshops involved a variety of topics, including naturism (of course), personal growth, nutrition, environmental issues, photography, figure drawing, and many other things. There wasn't so much "new age" stuff as in the past. A couple gave several workshops relating to their work with establishing a young naturists group. There was a two hour discussion on the Lighthouse Beach situation. On Wednesday there was a trip to Potters Falls, a public skinny-dipping site near Ithaca. In the evenings there were dances and musical presentations. Sports included volleyball, pickle ball, and petanque. I led three workshops: "The Future of Naturism", "Why Are You a Naturist", and "Nudity and Christianity". All seemed to be well received. Naturist gatherings and festivals are a great way to meet fellow naturists and take part in activities while enjoying time without the burden of clothing. I encourage naturists who have never been to one to try one. Thanks. This report is brought to you by Jeff.
o Full Tan Sun Club. Carol and I have been long time members of the Full Tan Sun Club. (going on our 13th season). The club started in 1967 and was owned and operated by Richard and Marie Roberts. The Roberts operated the club until the 2001 season. Due to failing health he was going to close the club and that's when Carol and I talked it over and decided to buy the property. With the new purchase we also have a new attitude. We are a family oriented nudist park (not clothing optional). We welcome singles, couples and families. We require a valid photo I.D. for entry into our Park. We want people to be treated the way we would like to be treated. We greet people with a smile and welcome hello. Being a smaller park we can take a little extra time to get people used to their surroundings,especially if they are first timers. We have brochures available if people call (518)673-2886 or e-mail us. Our mailing address is P.O.Box 360, Warnerville, N.Y. 12187.Singles Friendly. Visit the website for additional information.
o Juniper Woods is an ANNR affiliate landed club and campground. The club has 65 acres of wooded rolling landscape with lots of open sunning meadows, two small vivacious lakes with excellent fishing and enough wooded roads and trails to keep any bicyclist, hiker or jogger occupied. Amenities include: 50 campsites tucked away in this out of doors natural beauty, hot outdoor showers, heated conversation pool, clean modern bathhouse, dump station and large pavilion - partially open and partially enclosed to provide a respite from uncomfortable weather, newly constructed 20' X 40' swimming pool to compliment our water activities.

Phone: 518/945-1399. Singles Friendly. Visit the website for additional information.
o Nuding The Lake George, New York Area. August 2006. From time to time, we see queries about the Lake George area. Northwest Bay Brook Falls is still a good small nude area and there should never be a problem nude camping, swimming and hiking in the Tongue Mountain and Northwest Bay area. Today, as we've done over the last 18 years, we nuded Little Jabe Pond which sees extremely little use. There's free camping there too. Big Jabe Pond is so remote that nude camping, sunning and swimming is fine there too. If you'd like more information, email us. This report is brought to you by Camilla and Bill.
o Lighthouse Beach Report on Fire Island. September 2009. This is an update on Lighthouse Beach, Fire Island, N.Y.. National Park Service seems to be, optimal word being "seems", considering changes to the beach's longstanding clothing optional use. I'd ask any readers who have enjoyed Lighthouse Beach in the past & would like to continue seeing this beach remain clothing optional to look at this website: Save Lighthouse Beach. Thanks. This report is brought to you by Bob.
o Lighthouse Beach Report on Fire Island. July 16 2008. My wife and I are relatively new to the nude experience and have been visiting various areas in Massachusetts and New York. Among the New York areas, Lighthouse beach on Fire Island is far and beyond my favorite. This is a posted "Clothing Optional" beach which is populated by family's, couples and individuals. Fire Island is just past Long Island and is connected to Long Island by a causeway... (click preceding link to read the rest of the report.)

o Phoenix Temple in midtown Manhattan, New York. December 2008.

The sessions are coed, with a male predominance. Each session begins clothed, with disrobing as a part of the ceremony. There is an hour or so of quite strenuous yoga, although beginners are welcome. There are several instructors, all women, who offer lunchtime, weekend afternoon, and evening sessions, all of which are excellent. There are occasional woman-only sessions for the bashful women among us. To find logistical details visit the website nakedyoganyc.com . The motto is 'expose your asana'.
