Founded in 1933

Lake O’ The Woods Club in Valparaiso, Indiana is one of the two oldest continually operating nudist clubs in the U.S.A.  The club is set around a beautiful creek-fed and spring-fed 20 acre lake on 130 acres of hilly, forested terrain.  Our facilities include a clubhouse with two kitchens (one for guest use, the other for cooking for large groups at club events), an outdoor pool, indoor hot tub, two sandy beaches with sun decks about half a mile apart on the lake, and a small dog beach.  The lake is great for swimming, boating, and fishing, and it has hiking trails all around it through a forest full of wildlife. Come see for yourself!

Lake O' the Woods Club welcomes folks and friends from the world-wide nudist community but has no regular staff or office, so we ask your patience when signing in!  Visitors are welcome during the season when there is a Gatekeeper on duty (between 9 AM and 9 PM every day; with limited entry after 6 PM) to greet them and offer hospitality and a tour if time allows.   

Of course you have questions about social nudity . . .

This website covers most questions you may have with regard to social nudity, first-time visitors, camping, membership and reservations for accommodations during the summer, but if you want to speak with someone, we welcome you to call 219-477-6643 or 219-241-0739 and leave a brief message and we'll get back to you.  Or click the "info" link at the top right of this page for other contact options.
