White Thorn Lodge Members and Guests,

Due to the ever-changing guidelines of government and health organizations concerning this virus, White Thorn Lodge is closed to visitors until further notice. We will continue to monitor changes with the situation and will update this post when warranted. We realize that this places an amount of uncertainty to visitors who would like to plan their summer, but it seems to be unavoidable at this time.

Superbowl 2020, our 50th is also cancelled for this year and will take place in 2021. The uncertainty of this virus and the economic toll it has taken on many of our guests and players brought us to this conclusion. This was not an easy decision to make, we all love hosting Superbowl and hope you all return next year for our best Superbowl ever.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

President, White Thorn Lodge


Fun, Safe, & Family Friendly

Guests are Welcome Memorial Day through the week after Labor Day

White Thorn Lodge is a family nudist campground nestled in the hills of Western Pennsylvania, about an hour from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Erie, Canton and Wheeling.

A relaxing natural haven in our more than 200 wooded acres, White Thorn offers a family friendly atmosphere, campgrounds, sports and recreational facilities, weekend events, and the opportunity for renewal that is unique to the nudist experience.

The Clubhouse

The 40′ x 60′ clubhouse, with its stone and concrete patio, is the focus of club social events. Members and guests attend the weekend dances with bands and DJs, dinners, meetings, Yoga and other types of exercise.

“We just loved it. Can’t believe we waited so long too try it. The people were friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautiful. Everyone made us feel right at home. We can’t say enough about how great it is at WTL. What an amazing place.”


The Swimming Pool & Conversation Pool

A New 28′ x 60′ heated swimming pool, surrounding sunning deck, and in-ground conversation pool were christened in the Spring of 2013. Both pools are fully handicapped accessible which includes lifts to enter and exit the water as well as proper wheelchair ramps to access the complete sunning area. Outdoor showers, an indoor bathhouse, and the sauna are only a few feet away.

“I visited (WTL) for my very first nude experience… The accommodations and grounds were wonderfully maintained. The people were so incredibly friendly. We swam, hiked, and talked with people. I felt alive. We left feeling refreshed and renewed. Knowing there are places where I am accepted just as I am is wonderful and I am so glad my first experience was there! We will definitely be back. -Susan”


Tennis, Volleyball & Pickleball Courts

White Thorn has one tennis court and two hard volleyball courts, two (new in 2016) pickleball courts, and three deep sand volleyball courts. Nearby, a grass all-purpose playing field is used for cornhole and kickball events. This field is transformed into grass volleyball courts for Superbowl, and the tennis courts become two additional Superbowl volleyball courts.

“At WTL I found the most comfortable, relaxing place I could have imagined. Everyone was helpful and very friendly, members and guests alike. – Fritz”

The snack bar is managed and staffed by our members. Breakfast and Lunch are served Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays.  Check the events schedule for activity-based dinner events as we often hold pot lucks and cookouts throughout the Summer.

Rental Cabins

Four rental rooms were built by the members (as were most facilities at White Thorn) and face the large open camping area. We recommend that you make a reservation well in advance of a visit.

Bocce Court

The bocce court with its surrounding lawn is a favorite gathering place every day and evening for both experienced and novice bocce players. The pool and children’s playground are close by.

Members Camps & Cottages

These are just a few of our members summer lodgings that help illustrate the ambience and character of White Thorn.
