This was our first year getting to be natural. We couldn't get enough of it!! This place is absolutely amazing!! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We were out of town for the Super Bowl, and we are already missing being there....May is not coming soon enough!
Well, White Thorn Lodge is at the top of the list for summer vacation. My boyfriend and I loved it so much that we applied for membership. We are now probationary members. We love the people and the grounds and all the events.
We're super excited to be there next summer!!!
I had a great time camping at the Superbowl. This my 1st time camping in about 23 years and I am glad I did. This was my 1st Superbowl and definitely not my last. The volleyball games were amazing, all levels. I had fun running the trails and I enjoyed getting the hot tub and sauna. Oh and the stuffed cabbage was amazing!!
My husband and I first visited WTL on Sat., 9-SEP-21 just days before the Superbowl of Naked Volleyball was to be held. Being nude in front of strangers was challenging, but being naked in front of 500+ people was a different ask. And this was only our second time being nude in public. Well, this would be quite an intimidating experience, or so we thought.
We stayed until nearly sundown that Saturday, returned Monday for another day trip, camped out Friday night - neither of us had done this since childhood - and returned Sunday to finish out the season. All that to say that the calm this place puts on your spirit just makes you want to return. The atmosphere at WTL is absolutely refreshing. The members and guests alike were friendly and welcoming, and it was nice to interact with a community of people whose stories were so vast, yet often began just like our own: not knowing what to expect, but having your expectations completely exceeded.
WTL is seemingly very effectively and efficiently run. Despite the size of the event the bathrooms and showers were generally quite clean and well stocked; though I did not use the porta johns they appeared to be abundant. The grounds were well maintained. Food was quite plentiful and the cost was reasonable. Kudos to the Corn Roast…it was Awesome! Did I mention the volleyball was great?!
We both look forward to next season and the serene vibe that comes with entry - you feel it the moment you enter the gates.
My wife and I had a great stay at WTL on Labor Day weekend. The people couldn’t have been nicer! We are already making plans to visit several times next year. Thank you for the experience and hospitality!
Liked the flag ceremony on labor day. Enjoyed the different activities that you provide( hikes, and the different tournaments). Participating in the tournaments was a great way to meet new people. Looking forward to coming back next year.
To the family, friends and staff of White Thorn Lodge.
Thanks for providing such an awesome place. After my 1st visit on July 6th, I returned several times. I made some great friends this summer and am already looking forward to next year.
what a great experience, my first time visiting i camped for 1 night on Friday the 13th
On my way to cooperstown N.Y . Everyone was so nice . Will go again.
Had my first experience at White Thorn 8/1/21.
Wanted to thank everyone for being so welcoming to a guest and a first timer. It was easily one of the most relaxing days of my life and I definitely think I'll be around more often in the future. What a wonderful community you have!
Yesterday was my very first social nude day. Which is funny because I have been a closet naturist since before I started school and now I'm 65 and retired.I feel bad that I didn't try this sooner.I can't think of how any place could have been better for a first timer. White Thorn Lodge is Amazing..No pressure, friendly people, and very relaxing Thank You so much and I plan on being more of a regular. Now if my wife would join me it would be perfect..
It was our first visit to White thorn Lodge, our first time at any nudist resort. Wow!! What a great experience! I was very small minded about being naked in front of other people. So glad my husband talked me into coming out of my shell. It was clean and welcoming. We felt very relaxed. It was not what I envisioned a nudist resort to be like. The people were very friendly. We will definitely be back.
Started going to WTL in 2013, I started bringing Shelly in 2016. Of all 7 campgrounds that we visited in PA and MD, WTL is by far our favorite and if it weren't for the distance, it would be our only one. There isn't one negative thing I can say about this place...from the friendliest people, great layout, fun activities and cleanliness to the overall relaxation.
We give great applause to the great people that run and take care of the grounds.
First time visit August 15
Spent a very nice Sunday afternoon enjoying the day
First time being nude in a group setting and had a great time
I will definitely be back for more
First time visiting White Thorn Lodge and first time visiting any nudist location. I was welcomed right away and given a tour. This was great because it gave me a chance to know where to go and not feel out of place. I was nervous at first and felt myself walking fast to find a place to sit by the pool. After awhile I felt more comfortable and at ease. The pool area is very nice. The people there are friendly and I ended up playing games in the pool with them. I stayed around 7 hours. It was nice to relax in a place that felt natural. I like how easy it was to let down my guard. To be naked in front of strangers and not even think about it after awhile. It felt so normal. In fact, I was sad to leave. I will definitely be making another trip here in the near future.
I made my first trip to White thorn lodge on my way to new York . what an amazing place . I camped for 1 night . did not want to leave . I Recommend. Them to everyone . can't wait to go again for a weekend
This was our first visit to WTL and first time nude. We only planned on staying for the weekend and ended up staying 9 amazing days! Everyone was so friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. Our time at WTL was absolutely wonderful and we keep asking ourselves why we waited so long to do this! We're already planning our next visit and we hope to become members one day. Thank you all for making our first time a relaxing and memorable one!
Sarah, Luca & I had a wonderful time at WTL lodge and plan on visiting many more times in the future and even hope to become members eventually since were only about an hour away! Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome. See you guys soon!!
This was our first time there, and first time nude. What an amazing experience!!! The grounds are beautiful and the atmosphere is so peaceful there! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I wish we hadn't waited so long to visit! We are definitely heading back for a visit ASAP!
I attended the nude 5K this previous weekend and I loved this Trail route above all others in previous years. It was challenging, but it was beautiful and I got to see areas of the camp not normally seen. I hope for the future a similar or exact same route.
I love this place. I came for a night and stayed for three weeks. Everyone is super friendly and warm. The facilities and grounds are in great shape. This was my first experience of a co-op resort and I loved to see how everyone pitched in what they could to make it so nice here. I especially enjoyed the hot tub conversations, the hiking trails, the sauna, the fun activities, and of course, the volleyball. I can't wait to get back.
