Camping with the Naturists
Our friends Sini and Bob spent quite a bit of time at this park and raved about it, so, needing a place to stop between Key West and Savannah this looked like the perfect spot. We love to go to clothing optional hot springs and have been to quite a few; Bill has been to nudist parks before for hash weekends but this was going to be a first for me. The weather had been quite warm, but when we arrived in Fort Pierce it was cool and windy, not exactly the weather I would pick for running around in the buff! But perfect for hitting the hot tub, which we did as soon as we set up. It had been a long drive from Key West and we were happy to grab a quick dinner and have an early night.
The next day I headed out to do a little grocery shopping while Bill did some RV maintenance - IN THE NUDE! We run around naked in the rv quite a bit but it's an entirely different experience doing chores and stuff outside naked! They have a nice big heated pool with tons of new rafts and noodles; great music was blasting from the speakers, we had our cocktails and some snacks, some reading material and a nice overcast day in the high 70's - we were quite comfy to just chill at the pool all day. Bill really needed a day to do absolutely nothing and that's just what he got. At 6pm there was a pizza party and then they were playing a couple of movies in the club house. There we all were - eating pizza, drinking wine, shmoozing - all sans clothing. They passed out bags of popcorn and we settled in to watch the movie and it kind of just felt, well, normal! Everyone was incredibly friendly, no freaky people checking you out, just regular people, with regular bodies. There are a ton of these campgrounds all over the country and I am sure they each attract a different kind of crowd, but this one was cool and I'd recommend it if you're in the area and want to have a different kind of experience.
