Mountaindale Sun Resort has members and guests of all ages, races, shapes and sizes. They are a typical cross-section of the general public, with maybe just a little more willingness to try new and different experiences. Nudity tends to have an equalizing effect on people.
You probably imagine that you’ll feel self-conscious or uncomfortable being undressed around other people. You will be surprised at just how much discomfort you put up with in most clothing. Being comfortable means not having to worry about where your swimsuit is slipping or sliding. It’s realizing that it’s silly to sit around the pool in a wet, soggy suit when you’re practically naked anyway. We spend a lot of time adjusting clothing. Imagine not doing that or thinking about it all day. Now, that’s freedom!
First-time visitors to Mountaindale Sun Resort will be taken on an orientation tour upon arrival at the office. Both you and your tour guide will be clothed during your tour of the grounds. Tours are always possible but advance request by phone is helpful to club hosts. There is no charge for the orientation tour or your first visit if you are a prospective member. All others will pay day use admission fees.
Often guests come with RVs, tents, and other plans to stay overnight after their first visit. This visit must be sponsored by an AANR member. Please ask the Club Host in advance for arrangements.
Some of you might be comfortable with the idea of going to a place where you will see nude people, but aren’t sure if you’re ready to join in. Usually, that apprehension disappears by the end of the tour, but if not, here are some suggestions for “nudist clothing” that won’t look too conspicuous: A long t-shirt, beach cover-up, sarong or towel will do just fine. Regular street clothes tend to stand out a bit, particularly on hot days.
Following are some of the items to bring with you on your visit to Mountaindale Sun Resort:
Beach towels Besides for sunning and swimming, it is customary to carry a towel with you to sit on. Women sometimes prefer a wrap or sarong to sit on away from the pools.
Sunscreen There are lots of shady areas, but protection is strongly recommended, particularly for skin areas that don’t ordinarily get much sun.
Comfortable footwear Sandals and sneakers. There are lots of areas to explore in the main resort area and the hiking trails.
Sand or lounge chairs All the pool areas have plentiful lounges, but you might want to bring your own if you prefer a quiet spot on the lawn or are visiting on a busy summer weekend.
Food and drink? The snack bar is open on weekends May through September. You are welcome to bring your own food also, if you desire.
