I camped at White Thorn lodge two different weekends in the summer of 2014. Beautiful place, wonderful people. I went because I have had body image issues my whole life, and felt this was a way to confront it, head on. I felt so free and empowered. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. Haven't been able to return yet, but I am making plans to take my husband. Everyone there is so encouraging and respectful. It was a wonderful overall experience. As I said, definitely coming back as soon as we can manage it.
We're both looking for another great summer at White Thorn in 2019. We visit the camp 5 or 6 times a year for the past 3 years and every year we meet more wonderful people. This place is our oasis and we come here to relax with our great friends. See ya soon.
Love the new look of the site. I see many of the friends I had the pleasure of meeting last summer on my first visits to WTL... but was a bit disappointed I wasn’t in any of them! Maybe next year 😁
I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
I've been visiting White Thorn 3-4 times a year for the past 3 years. I love this place! Its great to feel free and have so many activities too.
I’ve been visiting White Thorn Lodge every summer for the past five years. I only get to visit once or twice per summer but it is a great getaway! It can be very peaceful on a weekday and a great way to get away from it all. The pool is the best I’ve ever seen. The water is always warm. The trails are nice when they’re cut low enough to walk on. I like to read, swim and take walks on the gravel roads. Everyone is very nice and there are plenty of shady places to hang out in case you don’t want an overall tan like me😉.
this was my first visit to a nudist resort and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was put at ease from the start by the receptionist at the welcoming office and by the member guide and all the members wo graciously answered all my question and made me feel so welcome and at ease I hope to return next year.

I didn't get to visit as many times as I wanted this summer but got my weekly dose of Vitamin D at WTL starting in mid-July. I hope to get there earlier and more often in 2019. I like the fact that I can be off to myself reading or snoozing by the pool, or easily engage in conversation if I want. Had some nice conversations with John & Theresa, Karen & Jack, talked plants with Ken and enjoyed the company of other members and visitors. And got some tasty food from the snack bar. Sorry that the weather wasn't good for the Super Bowl, but I'm sure you all made the best of it. Thank you, and see you next year!
I have to say as a first timer to visit a nudist resort of any kind WTL was the best choice anyone would make. The social environment is so inviting from the receptionist upon arrival, Ken my tour guide and absolutely every persons acceptance of a newbie (LOL) I had the best time ever and will be coming back again. Thank You all for such a wonderful experience. I recommend if you are thinking or have ever thought about going do it once and you will be hooked for life. Thanks again Rory 🙂 🙂
My wife and I enjoyed our visit to White Thorn the weekend of August 18 2018. Your resort is beautifully landscaped and we especially liked the way the colorful chairs by the pool blended with all the flowers. Your members and guests were very friendly and the food service was delicious! We enjoyed watching the pickle ball tournament as we cheered on some of our friends. We made several visits to the hot tub too which always hit the right spot and relieved any pains. We wish you much success and we hope to pass your way again in the future.
I wanted to drop a note of thanks to all of the WTL folks for making us feel so welcome. From check in to all the folks we met on our stay. We had a fantastic time for our first nudist experience. My wife felt instantly comfortable with Debbie when we took our tour and she didn't look back all day! The landscaping, hiking trails, pool, rental cabin, everything exceeded our expectations. Definitely going to make it back before the season ends. Them only downside of the whole experience was having to put on clothes and leaving!
Christian Naturists of America had a nice time at WTL. our event was successful due to the planning and cooperation of the staff, along with making the necessary preparations to make our accommodations very pleasant.
We recommend this resort for a place for Christian Naturists to come together for a restful retreat as well as a place to make new friends.
We look forward to planning next year's event at WTL. 🙂 😉
Spent the day met the president and other guests had a great time everybody was super friendly Hospitality was outstanding thank you I'll be back..
I had been wanting to do the naked 5K for a few years now but always had scheduling conflicts. Finally able to do it this year! Had a blast! Looking forward to doing more naked events as I can! Very liberating feeling!95843
Been to WTL many times over the years and ALWAYS have a great time, was there the weekend of July 21, 2018 and had another great time. Grounds are nice, hiking trails are EXCELLENT and the pool and hot tubs FANTASTIC not to mention all the great people. I would highly recommend a visit to WTL anytime. Thanks so much !!!
My first visit to your camp was this year for the State Line Streak (7-7-7) and the Thirsty Mile. Arrived on Friday morning and had a wonderful time through the weekend. Everybody was warm and friendly. Aside from the chilly morning of the run, I was relaxed the entire weekend.(it warmed up soon enough) Enjoyed meeting many of your members and guests. The grounds are clean with well manicured lawns. The showers and bathrooms were well kept. It was well worth the 5 hour drive to get there. Next year, I'm planning on staying a week.
** A word of caution: If you are towing a camper take the alternate route suggested from the website.
Thank you all for your hospitality during my first trip to WTL! It's the most amazing place in Western Pennsylvania, a little utopia with a tight-knit community who take great pride in the property. I'm so glad to have found it after so many years.
Thumbs up! Special thanks to Ebonee, Krista, Amanda, Ken, Todd, Carol, Marsha, Bruce and Jenny for such a warm welcome. I had a great time this weekend and I will be back very soon 😉
After decades of nude beaches and skinny-dipping pool parties, I spent my first day ever at a “real” nudist camp yesterday. White Thorn Lodge is an awesome place! The physical facilities are fabulous, but it is the people who really make the difference. I had the privilege of meeting three incredible young ladies who turned a very nice day into one of the best days I’ve had in a very long time.
To Michelle, Ebonee and Krista: I can’t thank you enough for your warm reception, kind words of advice, great conversation and laughs. You shall be forever etched in my memory as the brightest of bright lights in an otherwise simply wonderful day.
To anyone considering trying social nudity for the first time but are hesitant, I highly recommend WTL. Your only regret will be, “Why didn’t I do this twenty years ago?”
To all the new friends I met yesterday (including my USAF brothers), thanks for extending the warm welcome.
It may have been my first visit to WTL, but it won’t be the last. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
What an amazing place and people to match! I thought that this would be a phase in my life and now I am becoming an official member. I am so proud to call this community my family. The fellowship and friends I have made the last few years has exceeded any expectations I could have imagined. If you have a chance to visit our camp...please do!!! I promise you won’t be disappointed. ✌🏾❤️🏐
WTL is an absolute wonderful atmosphere to be in. I just spent my first weekend here at WTL as I'm typing this and I can't wait to come back again soon. The dances,pool, hot tub,hiking trails, and volleyball courts are all awesome areas to be. They really care about all their facilities and grounds a great deal. But what really helps make this place what it is, are the amazing and open people at the camp. It was a great feeling to be so accepted by everyone during my first trip there. Make sure you get to know everyone, you defiantly won't regret it. So if your looking to relax and have a good time with some great people choose a weekend and make a trip out there.
