1. Being in Canada we have less restrictive laws then some other areas. It is not against the law for a woman to be topless. If you are wearing flip-flops, a cap, you are technically not nude. You have to be charged by the Attorney General from a report filed by the police. They have a history of not pursuing simple nudity complains unless your acting in a lewd manner. We have good friends who have camped like this for years, and have never had any problems. Like they told us just don’t be silly about being nude, you would have a problem.

  1. I have done this for many years now and it wasn’t until recently that we bought a travel trailer. That actually improves the opportunities to do this as the trailer can be positioned to screen/shield us from the rest of the campground if we position it right. I love the outdoors and that is why I enjoy naturism so much I feel so much more a part of the natural world when I am nude in nature. I used to be a member of a group called the Camping Bares of San Diego great bunch of people they introduced me to many unique and off the beaten path places on public land that was nude friendly in fact in over 15 years of going on camping trips I only had one or two negative reactions. I have even taken to nude hiking and find it very refreshing but normally I do that in truly remote areas not accessible via a vehicle at least one or two miles from a road. As I recognize the effects of ageing on my body I will no doubt do more RV type camping but I hope to be able to do quite a bit of day hiking for years to come. My wife was never very interested in nudism but she has enjoyed it at times she is more comfortable in the company of her own family nude around the house not so much in favor of nude beaches or resorts but she has in the past. I think in the future this is a good way to compromise in that we can enjoy some comfortable nudity in a nice quiet campground with all the comforts of home. If I can manage a few trips to the nearby nude resort then so much the better. P.S. By the way allnaturalwife, if you are talking about San Onofre I have a tip for you. Try to get a pass to camp just down the road at the RV spot on base at the Las Pulgas exit. It is a great spot and nude camping there is a snap! Plus you are just a short bike or hike away from the beach. The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. — Robert Frost

I have mainly been a back yard nudist, however, I have long practiced skinnydipping in our local parks. Again like most in this post, I find the week days to be the easiest to practice my skinnydipping. On fairly rare occasions I will venture out of the motorhome nude for short jaunts to the trash area or down to the waters edge. Much more often I will stroll around wearing only a towel. I have plans to attend my first clothing optional area this spring and may come away more likely to spend more time outside in the parks close to home, perhaps carrying the towel rather then wearing it 🙂 Nudity – enjoy it with abandon but tempered by discretion.

Good subject Sue. We have camped in the nude for years. The best times as you state are during the week. You can be nude on the weekends but you must be very selective with the camp sites you take and you don’t have the freedom to venture out of your own site. We carry two 6×12 foot tarps made out of nylon tent material. If you position your tent or trailer, truckor car right, you can usually block peoples view completely by hanging these tarps to close of any open spots. We find this a good solution to having to constantly be on the look out for other people, and having to quickly cover up. This allows you to just relax and enjoy your self. You are basically right about the law. I was outside your trailer early one morning, wearing a ball cap and flip-flops. We had our little power plant running to recharge our batteries, because of this I did not hear a car slowly driving through the camp grounds. It was the R.C.M.P, and by bad luck I was standing in the wrong place. He drove by, but in about 5 minutes was back and stopped. He told me that yes I was legal not nude and yes simple nudity was not an offence, but that I should be way more careful not to be seen by others. He said that anyone else who saw me as he did, and if they were offended by my nudity, would not report a simple nude guy in a camp site. They would attach some story, when asked by dispatch what I was doing, to show how lewd my behavior was, and then they would really have to respond to the complaint and maybe recommend charges be laid. He basically said ” upset, angry complainant reporting a nude flasher, nude guy found in camp site, you do the math.” I know other people have spotted us nude as we have heard the odd comment as people walk by. To date, surprise, none were negative.I think this is a great way for new nudists or even seasoned home nudist who have not ventured outdoors to get out without dealing with the added worries, as posted here, of group settings like a club or beach, and get comfortable outside their safe zone first . Just plan well and enjoy.

It’s good to see others enjoy nude camping, outside the normal nudist venues. Later, some friends of ours had a nude encounter, not with the RCMP, but with a Park Warden by Banff. In the parks because so may people are traveling through seeing the sites,they spend no more then one or two nights at each spot. Our friends say that during the day most camp grounds empty out by about 9 or so in the mornings and don’t start to get new campers until about 4 in the afternoon. They were set up right on rivers edge. She was sitting behind their trailer and watching him fly fishing in the river below. Both were nude. Her in flip-flops only, him in a cap and flip-flops. She said she saw a warden walk out on the rivers edge several sites away and lokk their way. She said it was to late to hide and her husband did not seem aware the warden was there. He walked up to her husband, said hello to him and her, and asked to see her husbands fishing permit. He checked the permit,and ask if her husband had had any luck. He never once mentioned their state of dress or lack there of until he was ready to walk away, at which point he said that it was nice to see that they were enjoying their stay in the park and that it was not unual to see nude activity around the park. He cautioned them to be aware that not everyone would understand their nudity, and that they should be careful not to offend other campers. He said they should keep their nude activities to their own site as the camp ground filled up for the evening. What struck them was he was not telling them that they should put on clothing as others arrived, put to keep to their own site. They did say that the sites in this camp ground were well seperated and quite growen in, but to avoid any problems they did put on shorts and tee shirts as others arrived.

After this discussion, I remembered one instance in which I was “caught” camping nude. I was camping at Joshua Tree National Park in California, and had picked what I thought was a remote site within one of the campgrounds. One morning after finishing my shower, I was sitting at the picnic table in long underwear bottoms, but topless, putting on my makeup. Four guys happened to walk by at that moment and glanced over. One of them said in a fairly loud voice to his friends, but obviously intended for me to hear as well, “I didn’t know this was a clothing-optional park”. I looked over my shoulder at them, but they were already on their way. I decided to put a T-shirt on after that, and to be more careful in my campsite selection. I don’t think they were too offended, but one never knows.

We have been nude camping for over 20 years. ANC35228 if you use some common sense picking and setting up your camp you can be nude the entire time your there. We spent 14 days on one trip nude. We only dressed to go get wood, drop of payment for the site and two trips out for supplies. Like I said I think this is a great way for newbies and home nudists to get outdoors and enjoy them selfs without the crowds. As well as camping my wife and I like hiking in the nude, and I like to ride my mountain bike nude. Anniebare we have had people make comments to us while camping, hiking and I get them all the time because I ride my bike, mid week day mornings, on the country back roads around the area we live. None of the comments we have ever heard, were negative about our nudity. The comment made to you I would not take as negative. We believe lots of people like the nudist idea, they just need to stop thinking and start doing. The most common statement we hear is “I wish I had the guts to do that ( be nude)”. To which we reply,” What’s stopping you”. We can, and are, changing perceptions of friends, family and even strangers who see us enjoying some form of nudism. Being a little bolder with our nudity, in a none offensive manner, gets people thinking and talking about nudists. Anniebare, your being topless may have started a discussion where these guys, decide they too have to admit to enjoying being nude at home, and that if, like you, they want to be nude out camping, why not.

One day about 15 years ago I was camping at a lake with my dad and some friends. I was around 12-13 at the time and it was the middle of the week and not very crowded. One day me and my friend were walking back from the general store at the lake and took a short cut through some trees and ran into a nudist couple that were about in their 30s and their young son. Once they saw us they covered up in towels and kinda looked embarrassed. While my friend was drooling at the sight of a nude women, I thought it was no big deal and it would be a cool to hang around on the beach and soak up some sun without any clothes. We went back there the next day cause my friend wanted to see the women again but they were gone. Maybe moved somewhere else or left all together, but whoever they are I would like to thank them as they probably got me started on nudism.

We are fellow Albertans from the Calgary area that enjoy being nude (around home mainly) and enjoy camping but have been afraid to tie the two together. There have been a couple of posting here about camping and we are curious if someone could suggest where to go. We like going out to the Kananaskis because it’s close and areas around Nordegg. Our extent of nudity has been changing in the campsite, skinny dipping and wandering around the site in a sarong. I myself have wandered up river in th Weasel head. There are some great secluded spots there to enjoy the sun especially during the week.

Scale99- We find if you stay away from the tourist areas and camp grounds close to small towns, we’ve had good luck. Nordegg offers some great areas. Kananaskis can be a little busy even mid- week. Also June while the kids are still in school and late August or even September if the weathers good, you’ll find less people. Camp grounds along rivers are better then ones with a lake, and never private. Remember too that a camp ground with 15 sites is not going to give you the same privacy as one with 30 sites, if a few other sites are taken. Two years ago we went out around Robb. When we arrived on a Tuesday afternoon, 4 of the sites were occupied. The next morning 3 left.The ones that were left were close to the main gate and we were close to the exit. We spent till about 2:30 in the nude and did not see them. At about 3:00 I pulled on short and jump on my mountain bike to look around and drop of the site payment at the main gate. This couple and their young son must not of heard me coming or didn’t care, because as I rode by mom and dad were sitting nude in lawn chairs and the little boy was busy at the picnic table also nude. I think you will find that if the camp grounds are not crowded, and you try to get out during the week, that you can camp nude with out any problems and may not be alone.
