Our first time ever going to a nude/naturalist location was last year at white thorn. The weekend of the 5k. And I was very nervous at first. And over this past year of going to winter swims and our trip back to white Thorn. I feel our family had gained so many positives from the experiences. There is a new found confidence in ourselfs and more love and acceptance and pride. And after some very traumatic years our family had gone through. It has made a huge difference in our life's. And I'm so thankful. For all thew new friends our family has made. And Mieka and Esme were so thrilled to be at White Thorn Lodge again this year. I've never been in a space where I feel so surrounded by so many loving and kind and wonderful people. I feel like we have been blessed. And I just wanted to share that with you and anyone else who would like to read this. Mieka yesterday did her first swimming in the deep end at white thorn and by the end of the day she was diving for rings at the bottom of the deepest part of the pool. Both girls played and swam so much yesterday. I was hardly able to get them out of the car. And they were both still asleep when I left for work this morning. They are looking forward to more trips this summer.
One word to describe WTL: FABULOUS!!! From the moment we entered the park, we knew this was the right place for our family (including 3 kids) to vacation. The people are exceptional and they take such pride in making sure everything runs smoothly, looks nice, and is accommodating to the visitors. We were amazed at how many times folks came up to us to see if we were having a good time, to offer to answer any questions, or to just strike up a conversation. And they remembered our names! By the second day, they called us by name as they drove by in golf carts and waved, or when we placed our orders at the snack bar. That's a personal touch that means so much to us!
We LOVED it at WTL and we cannot wait to return!!!
I have never been to whitethorn lodge until just yesterday, met a co- owner Ken he was very friendly and took the time to show me around, have been to many nudist resorts but this was my first here. It was beautiful the pool was fantastic. I amazing plan to spend more time there this summer and even an overnight camping trip. KEN THANK YOU for your hospitality.
We love coming to White Thorn Lodge! Over the years we have visited a number of nudist resorts/ campgrounds and White Thorn ranks as one of the friendliest and nicest. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and you couldn't find a nicer group of people! We recently purchased an RV and have been visiting all summer for weekend get always and each trip to White Thorn just keeps getting better! We have made new friends and would highly recommend the place to both novice and seasoned nudist, you won't be disappointed!
We had a great time at WTL last weekend and we are looking forward to visiting again. Thinking of tenting this weekend, looks like great weather. Hopefully we will find a sponsor and become members.
Thanks to everyone at WTL for making our first experience so enjoyable and memorable. We met the nicest and friendliest people. We are looking forward to coming back as soon as possible!
Our first ever nudist club experience 8/22/15. Deb M at the welcome center was absolutely wonderful and allowed us to skip the tour and go directly to our camp site, so we could slowly transition into the nudist scene at our own pace. Wish we had known this sooner or we would've visited much earlier. Prior phone conversations left us feeling like we had to jump right in immediately which gave us some apprehension. But that wasn't the case at all. Folks were comfortably friendly, not overly intrusive and respected our privacy. The facilities were well kept...just be prepared for bugs when not near the pool in August. We will DEFINITELY visit again!thinking about joining as members.
Had a most wonderful time. Wonderful and warm people. Great cookout! And movie by the poolside was a perfect ending for our evening. Will be back tomorrow morning. 😮
We visited today and had a wonderful time. From the people at the front gate to the tour, we were made welcome. Thank you WTL!
I would like to thank EVERYONE on my first visit to WTL. I was a member of the NNS in Cleveland for some time, but this was my first visit to an outdoor facility. Everyone was very friendly and gave me a feeling like I had been there before. The facility itself is stunning, better than I expected and a very relaxing place to visit and meet new friends. I visited for the Aug. 1st car show, and im sure it wont be my last visit to this wonderful club. It was so relaxing to be able to enjoy nature and meet friends, I cant wait to visit again. Keep up the good work and thanks for having interesting events.
Hi, Our family was a member back in the 70's and it was the best time. I fondly remember the Super Bowl and the fun we had competing against other teams. I also remember the old farmhouse that is no longer there, the building of the new club house, the corn roasts with my Mom playing the accordion around the camp fire, our hikes down to the pond and riding our dirt bikes everywhere.
Thank you to Wayne and Betty for developing such a fantastic place and Thank you to those who keep it going. It has really grown over the last 40 or so years... I now live in California, but if I get a chance to visit PA I'll plan on stopping by for a visit...
first time here at white thorn lodge , my GPS guided me to the wrong entrance . Made some calls about direction . But I was mistaken as being a joker. But I decided to give it a try anyway . was shock in the beginning. But felt better later , look at them most of people are friendly, no judging to each other just like paradise. Gate gave me a tour very friendly and welcomed. all naked people say hi to me , which is kind of funny. Later I decided to loose up just to be like them . It was fun to play tennis naked . Met lots of people but couldn't remember their name . Mary I met is friendly and very welcomed me to be here . it was very nice chatting with her and her friends .i will definitely come back to visit those fellow and the nice place again. 🙂
Return visit after first time 2 weeks ago. We would like to thank WTL members for all of the hard work and planning that went into the Luau this past week end. We had a fabulous time with the Volleyball, Unbelievable pig roast and food and live band, and dancing. We are already making plans to come back for the next luau weekend next year. Thanks again
I have visited Whitehorn several times and have had just a pleasant experience every time. My first visit, was so enjoyable I've returned several times. I had been to one other resort, and was still a little apprehensive on my visit, I was welcomed at the gate, got the grounds tour and then made my way to the pool for a relaxing day. The pool and hot tub areas are immaculate. Music poolside and later in the day there was a band.
I met and chatted with few residents who later asked me to play in their volleyball game as they needed another player. Everyone there could not be more friendly. Thanks for the warm welcome, I plan to return again when passing through the area.
I've been there before and loved it , the first time for wife and was surprised how comfortable she was , we both enjoyed it immensely, people are friendly non judging , excellent time
Two thumbs up
Our first time visiting WTL this past Saturday. Grounds were very well landscaped and very clean. Pool was great and plenty of lounge chairs in and out of the sun. Snack bar had great food and surprisingly reasonably priced. We played tennis on a great court, until it hit 90 degrees, then hit the pool the rest of the day. People were very friendly. Sadly, had to go home but we found our piece of paradise fairly close to home. Thanks to Ken for the great tour. Will be back very soon
My boyfriend convinced me to try this camp ground. I love camping and meeting people, but was afraid of (like most women) that I would be judged for my body. Nope!!! He had visited this camp before and enjoyed playing volleyball and said it was a very comfortable environment. He was absolutely right. Everyone was so so friendly and welcoming. And there were no one judging anyone. I surprised even myself at how quickly I became comfortable. Great pool and the grounds are very lovely. The food was delicious. I am looking forward to returning again soon. It was a great weekend. Thank you very much members of White Thorn!! 😉
I was at White Thorn this past Weekend for the 5K run and the Some Colors run/walk. I came in 47 out of 47, but that is pretty much how I planned it. I just wanted to make it and I did and it was fun. And then I did
The Some Colors walk where they throw different color powders on you along the way. It was alot of fun. I came in last on that one too.
The place was very nice, well kept and clean, the pool was nice and warm and two hot tubs, one hot and one hotter. And they also have good food. All in all I had a very good time there, and the people were very nice.
I have been wanting to visit for the last 5 years. I made it to WTL for the first time yesterday and I had a very nice time! Everyone I met was very nice and made you feel like you belonged. I went alone because my wife was nervous about being nude in public.
If you're like I was and my wife still is, don't be afraid! There are people there of all age groups and body types... you don't have to be a model or have a 6-pack to fit in!
I hope I'll be coming back again soon!
