  1. Ted von Eiff says:

    I would love to have a nude beach somewhere close to Indianapolis, either on Lake Michigan or another large lake within the state. The nude beach should be part of a nude resort similar to Club Orient. I don’t like camping and don’t own a camper or recreational vehicle. The existing nude beaches in Indiana are very unappealing to me.

  2. christopher s. says:

    Newport Beach (Crystal Cove State Beach), Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, I would like to see nude beaches at all three cities, this would greatly improve Orange County in my opinions.

  3. Debbie Price says:

    The NC Outer Banks
    Myrtle Beach, SC
    Virginia Beach

    • Frank Stainton says:

      Im with ya there Debbie! We live in Norfolk, VA. This area has hundreds of miles of textile beaches and not one foot of nude beach. How is that fair? More importantly, how to change it? I would also second bringing back the beach north of Assateague Island State Park in MD. I’ll bet that the people who made law enforcment assert themselves at Assateague again, never even go there. Peace ya’ll !

  4. Ed L. says:

    On the American River in Sacramento,California.

  5. On Assateague Island National Seashore, just south of Ocean City, Maryland.

  6. Gary Smith says:

    Panama City, FL

  7. chuck says:

    I’d love to see one on Lake Superior in Minnesota, we upper mid-westerners need somewhere fairly convenient to go too.

    • Gary says:

      Oh my gosh. Have you been in Lake Superior even during the warmest months of the year? Nice clean water, but not suitable for above your knees.

    • Bryan says:

      Agreed, Minnesota does need one somewhere. The state has a great deal of shoreline but no official beach.

  8. Alan says:

    I would like to see some effort put into reclaiming San Onofre State Beach that area should never have been let go.

    I also feel there is enough support to get a nude beach near Seattle WA there is a group that has been trying to do this for some time. Magnuson Beach is the one they were looking at. They even put it up on the new mayors blog and it came in third out of all the suggestions. So I feel there is enough public support if we push a little.

  9. Id like to see Nude beaches here:
    So CA area, No of San Onofere area
    Hawaii- All Islands, No shore Oahu for Oahu & due E,W of Honolulu city proper
    Arizona-NM-UT-CO for rural Nude Rec.
    Estd AANR Resort in Hawaii, someplace (idle land used for project)

  10. Dave J says:

    Key West, FL
    Panama City, FL
    Marathon Key, FL

    • Peter G says:

      I’m with you Dave, it boggle my mind that there’s not a legal nude beach in Key West.

      • Bridgette says:

        I agree! Why is it that it’s o.k. for everyone to walk around nude in Key West for a week during Fantasy Fest, but they have no legal nude beach?

  11. bodybare says:

    Galveston, TX, Rockport, TX, Baytown, TX

  12. Dmitriy Veretennikov says:

    I would like to establish a nude beach on Coney Island in Brooklyn,NY. Let’s run a rally for it.

  13. Lou says:

    All over the United States! Along the coast, there is so much space to share… why not!!!

  14. Nate says:

    * San Onofre, CA
    * Blacks Beach, CA
    * Lake Havasu, AZ or CA side

  15. Bill says:

    anywhere along the Delaware shore or along the northern area of the Chesapeake Bay

  16. Rod Nixon says:

    On the Columbia River near the Tri-Cities area, or Mckay Reservoir near Pendleton, OR

  17. Dave Shaver says:

    Northeast Florida needs a clothing optional beach. The nearest clothing optional beach to N. E. Florida is at Canaveral National Seashore.

  18. Linda says:

    I would like to see a nude beach in St. Augustine, Florida. It’s my favorite city.

  19. Tom Doyen says:

    I would like to see nude beach in southern MN. near Mankato, MN. We have some lakes that are close to my area.

    • Dave J says:

      And those lakes are nice — in the summer but in the winter they’ve got the kind of “hard water” that even Culligan can’t cure.

  20. Ken says:

    Los Angeles, California area.

  21. Capt. Van says:

    Key West
    Tampa area
    N.E. Fla
    Member of TAN, (Tampa Area Naturists) working to establish a clothing optional beach in Tampa Bay area.
    Naturally,
    Van

  22. Rob says:

    I would love to see a nude beach some where along the Lake Erie shore near the greater Cleveland, Ohio area.

    • Mike says:

      I agree. A C-O beach along Lake Erie would be a great idea. What would you think about drawing crowds from Detroit, Toledo, and Cleveland?

      • Bridgette says:

        Yes! The Bass Islands in Lake Erie would be nice. You can only reach them by boat, so this may help to avoid some of the “gawkers”.

  23. Albert says:

    1. Myrtle Beach, SC
    2. any where else in SC

  24. brucenineteen63 says:

    South Jersey
    Northern Chesapeake Bay
    Delaware

  25. Joe says:

    I would like to see one on the West coast of Florida… Near the nudist capital of the world, Pasco County!

  26. Phillip Shope says:

    Sarasota, FL area would be nice or even Venice, FL

  27. Jeff says:

    Fort Desoto Park in south St Petersburg would be a great spot for a nude beach. With 1,200 miles of coast, it’s a shame that Florida only has two nude beaches where you won’t be hassled or threatened with arrest. What would be ideal would a resort in Florida with a real beach.

  28. Dave Silski says:

    Chicago, Key West, Miami.

  29. ED says:

    Capital Region, NY

  30. Ed & Carol says:

    Gulf National Seashore, FL at Ft. Pickens.

  31. Mike says:

    With a nude beach and all0 the golf you want, it would be an even better place to vacation than it is now.

  32. Bob L. says:

    Along the Colorado River:
    Lake Powell, Lake Mead and Lake Havasu.

  33. Mark F says:

    I agree with the Pasco County Florida area. I had heard talk of Fort Desoto park getting an area but it looks like that won’t be happening!

  34. Mike says:

    I would like to see a few clothed beaches for thoes who want. I fail to see why I need special beaches to be the way I was born! Why is it that I’m “werd” for being nude; (the way I was born) and persons who choose to hide behind close are treated as “normal”? Every beach should be a nude beach unless otherwise designated.

  35. troy mcanally says:

    I would like there to be a nude beach on the west coast of florida. Somewhere near pasco county. There might be a lot of resorts , but i think a beach would attract a younger crowd, since it wouldn’t be so exspensive and wouldn’t require a membership.

  36. Geoguygal says:

    Along the Gulf Coast of Texas, perhaps a section of Padre Island.

  37. Cindy says:

    In Northwest Florida near Panama City Beach (Camp Helen State Park) or from Navarre to Pensacola Beach (lots of open space with a history of skinny dippin).

    • Dale Turner says:

      I agree that northwest Florida would be a great nudist beach destination…alot closer to get to than Haulover beach for folks like us in Tennessee.

  38. Vinny says:

    I would say that Fort Tiden beach in Queens,New York would be ideal.It’s way far from any housing or mass transit and it would be similar to other clothing optional beaches further east on Long Island.It’s also on “FEDERAL LAND”.

  39. byrno66 says:

    Anywhere on the Delmarva peninsula, South New Jersey and the Outer Banks

  40. Tom says:

    I would like to see one officially designated in the Fort Bragg\Mendocino area. I don’t believe this society which is very open-minded and loaded with barely used beautiful beaches does not have an official nude beach.

  41. M.X.F. says:

    Simple. Where is there a beach? The nude and tex beaches at Sandy Hook,in n.NJ. (Gunnison is the nude one) have peacefully co-existed for many years. Why doesn’t EVERY beach of reasonable size have a nude section?

  42. Bridgette says:

    KEY WEST, FL- Like I said earlier…Why is it o.k. during Fantasy Fest to walk around nude for a week, but they have no legal clothing optional beaches? Look what Fantasy Fest has done for the tourism increase in October!
    LAKE ERIE SHORELINE, OHIO-(Between Toledo and Cleveland)-Many small islands that you can only get to by boat, so this may help to avoid “some” of the gawkers like we have had at Haulover Beach.

  43. Curt says:

    On Tahquamemon Bay (Lake Superior), Chippewa County, MI. Incredibly beautiful, beach rately used by anyone.

  44. Curt says:

    Tahquamemon Bay, MI rarely, rarely used by anyone.

  45. Mark says:

    We need more nude beaches on rivers! Any river with clean water that is not too close to an urban area should be considered. With Google Earth it’s easy for anyone to choose sites to visit and see if they’d work.

    I’d also like to see nude beaches on the Oregon coast, and the Wisconsin shore of Lake Michigan.

    I think we should establish beaches not in vacation spots, but close to our own communities.

  46. Steve says:

    There is not one, not even one official nude beach in Washington State. One near Seattle would be great to have.

  47. will says:

    I love to see a beach in New Orleans as open as this city is there should be one.

  48. Art L says:

    Lake Hartwell on the SC/GA line. It is a beautiful lake with probably hundreds of coves that would be a perfect beach/wilderness area with great weather 8 months of the year.

    • notanlinesonhartwell says:

      I’m for that!! we do nude on some of the islands in the main lake hartwell, and on our boat, but I’d like to be where others congregate and sunbathe.

  49. Ron Wilson says:

    I think its time we had a sanctioned naturist beach on Lake Erie some where between Toledo and Cleveland

  50. Northern MN says:

    We need one in north western Minnesota by bemidji or Detroit lakes

  51. Dave says:

    Oregon’s Coast needs a nude beach. One possibility is Sitka Sedge State Natural Area (formerly the Beltz Farm property) that is located north of Pacific City. The park is currently in the development phase following the property’s purchase by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. To get to the clothing optional area park in the Tierra del Mar community and walk the beach north to the end. This is not an Oregon State designated CO area.

  52. Naje Kim says:

    Having recently moved to work in SE Connecticut, there needs to be a few here along the shoreline and inland rivers. Actually, every public beach should have a C/O section. We’re the “public” too.
