My body is far from perfect. I am concerned people may make fun of me.
People come in all shapes and sizes. You are judged by your personality - not by your body. People seek friends by who they are.
My wife/girlfriend is nervous about visiting a nudist camp for the first time.
It's normal to be somewhat nervous on your first visit. Female guests are allowed to disrobe at their discretion on their first visit. Please bear in mind, that NO clothing is permitted in the swimming pool. At the Ponderosa Sun Club, we maintain a relaxed and family environment. We want you to feel comfortable and at home during your visit.
What if I accidentally get physically excited?
A public erection is not acceptable. 99% of men do not experience this problem, If you happen to be in that 1%, we suggest that you cover up with a towel or take a discreet cold shower until it subsides.

Visitors are welcome May 15 thru September 15, of course members may come out anytime during the year. You need to arrive between 8AM & 6PM.
How old are the people who come to the Ponderosa Sun Club?
The ages vary from newborn to late 80's. Our wide age range means everyone has the opportunity for new friends their own age.
How do children react to public nudity?
Children adapt very well. They love the pool and the large playground.
