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.

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.

After spending a glorious week at white thorn lodge for the Volleyball Super Bowl, I am a renewed person. The facility was clean, well-maintained, and organized. The staff was exceptionally kind and helpful, accommodating for all the guests. The atmosphere was friendly, and comfortable. The grounds were immaculate, and the pool very inviting. Delicious food, great music and dance, a wealth of new friends, and an amazing volleyball experience made my time at White Thorn Lodge an unforgettable one. I will most certainly return to this nudist resort for many years to come.

I was looking for a place to go skinny-dipping’ again. I found WTL and decided to try social nudism. At WTL I found the most comfortable, relaxing place I could have imagined. Everyone was helpful and very friendly, members and guests alike. I returned to WTL several times throughout the rest of the summer. I started to realize that as soon as my car was headed to the club the comfortable relaxing atmosphere makes me want to come back next year. I can’t wait till the next summer season.

We would like to thank all the wonderful, hard working members who made this years Superbowl such a joy to attend. The members did everything possible to make this year very enjoyable for everyone.

We would like to send a special "Thank You" to Andy and his security team. You all did a great job.

A special thank you must also be said for the Board members who made the most generous offer to all the guest from Florida. They offered to give the people from Fl. a place to stay while waiting to return to home or decide what to do.

WTL is a great place to visit and well worth the trip no matter where you are from. No other camp like it!

With our heart felt thanks,

Beau and Linda

We went to our very first Superbowl at White Thorn this year. Such a great time with fun interesting people. We will definitely be going again next year!

Bucket list Nakation!

This is our first visit here and, lucky for us, we started at the top... Superbowl Week! The resort is filled with athletes, some elite, for the huge Nude Superbowl of Volleyball Event. White Thorn Lodge, (WTL for short), is an American Association of Nude Recreation, (AANR), facility. That means you can expect respectful, family friendly behavior, and they enforce the rules, giving a shy first timer a high level of comfort and a great experience.

WTL is equipped with many volleyball and pickleball courts, a beautiful heated pool with plentiful lounges and a large in-ground hot/conversation tub. Eating at the snack-bar is both delicious and inexpensive. They have a large building, Hawthorn Hall, dedicated exclusively for the use of the kids, which is well equipped with TV, games, books, and toys, for the teen and pre-teen nudist. They also have an outdoor playground with a large climbing and sliding, playhouse. These kids facilities are monitored by an adult volunteer; grandmother to all. For the adults, there is also a large recreation hall that serves well for the frequent dances, games, and meetings.

White Thorn Lodge is member owned and as such, benefits from a pride of ownership not seen in most places. The grounds are spotlessly clean and picturesque, with ornamental plantings, lovely lawns, and an outstanding level of maintenance.

Know this: if you are looking for a great nudist experience in a clean, comfortable, AANR rules following enviornment, where you will have a friendly reception, you can't do better than White Thorn lodge!

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 can't say enough about how great it is at WTL. What an amazing place. Meet some awesome people like Annette & Don. :

We love going to White Thorn Lodge. The people are so friendly and inviting and include the entire spectrum of age groups. The grounds are spacious and very well kept. The flower gardens are of professional quality. The pool, hot tubs, sauna, and clubhouse are great and the tennis, pickle ball, volley ball, and bocce courts are all outstanding as are the shaded, woodland walking trails. We have visited many nudist/naturist resorts and facilities throughout the Midwest and East and have found none better than White Thorn Lodge.

we had a wonderful visit to WTL. this being our first visit to a Nudist resort I don't think we could've picked a better one.
everyone we meet was nice and polite and very helpful to see that we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves.
from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were very at ease and felt no awkwardness. we just stripped right down in the parking lot and got on with our day like we've done it a thousand times before.
our "tour guide" was a gentleman named Eric and showed us around, answered questions, and wished us luck.
all in all a very good time and we look forward to our next visit.
