Camping Nude

    My wife and I recently tried camping naked at a resort. We enjoyed it and wondered how many other nudist campers are out there or anyone have questions about it?

    It is not something that I have ever done but I am glad you two enjoyed yourselves. By the way, your username correlates very well with your first post haha :thumbsup:

    Was this resort specifically for nude camping?

    I have slept through the night naked a few times after a swim. Never a full nude camp trip. Not sure if i could do it. I sunburn pretty easy and there is a few places on my body i really dont want to get burnt at.

    Yes and if you go swimming you will not tan those other parts. Though there are others , when you look into the eyes of your lover and it becomes a romantic adventure knowing that in each others eyes you both are a beautiful couple.

    I have been nude camping but not at a nude campground..lol It does sound interesting though. I not sure there would be nudist camping around where I live though.

    Good question! Camping is not something I would equate with an activity to do without clothes - mosquitoes and campfire sparks would not be much fun.

    However, I would not be averse to nude camping by myself or with my spouse. I would not be interested in nude camping with others around, even in a nude campground where that would be the norm. But, I would rather not be around other people even when I have my clothes on :)

    A little bit of skinny dipping and maybe a tad of sun bathing. But I tell ya some-thin - the mosquitoes were out in full force these last 16 days and it was cold and wet. Truthfully - I wouldn't know where to hang my hunting/survival knife and carry all the stuff I usually take with me. :)

    I never heard of a nude camping resort. Sounds fun but I don't know if I would try it. Just thinking about the dirt and bug kind of skeeves me out. Do you guys actually camp out in tents or is it more like a cabin type resort? Are you sleeping on the ground and everything? Maybe if it was more like sleeping in cabins and not in tents, I would consider camping in the nude. Too each their own though. I don't judge you for trying and as long as you had fun, I am happy for you!

    Yep...there are nude camps. Not for me...but then everyone has choice.

    For me camping is synonymous with tent structures as all my threads testify. :)

    The other reality is that I'm into canoe/camping - mighty hard to trek in a cabin [though there are cabin tents].

    Honestly, I can't say I've ever really done it, beyond "skinny dipping" at remote swimming holes on blisteringly hot days in my youth. That said, I am a very open minded person and have to say I'm a bit intrigued by the notion. There are some very real things that would make nude camping or hiking unpleasant, to be sure, however, I could see how it might be liberating too. I'm not a Naturist myself, but I've known at least two people who were (Naturismus, as it is said in German) and they were lovely, grounded people.

    Anyway, interesting thread. :)

    Wow I was gone for a couple of days and everyone talking about nude camping. I have never done it, but if I ever do y'all will know... it'll be the first Bigfoot sighting in years.

    I have never tried nude camping since most times I usually camp with my kids and other family members. I have never camped while with my wife. Maybe after trying then I will come back and talk about the experience. It can be a great experience if you are used to. It will also force you to select a private camping site away from other campers.

    It all depends on your prospective...
    Just the same...one does what one should do

    for one's self.
    I've never seen a serious camper nude - they have better things to do. :)

    To each their own is the first thing that really came to mind here, but I can think of a couple of people I know that might enjoy this a little more. It might take a little more of a free spirit type person, which is not really me.

    Yes, to each their own. If they enjoy, more power to them. I'm a little more conservative (Central Pains raised accounts for much of that.) I use a swimming suit with a t-shirt, that's how modest I am. Or......OR, maybe I'm getting to heavy to show off my six pack.....located under my keg! But I'll say this, a keg holds more than a six pack! Baaaahaaaaa! f8ba3fcec4f8bfd4f8ccfd719b4f4804.jpg
