White Thorn Lodge is a privately-owned family nudist colony. It is situated in the hills of Western Pennsylvania which is only an hour away from Pittsburgh, Canton, Wheeling, Erie and Canton. Since 1961, members have worked hard to create a very relaxing natural haven for themselves and their guests. The resort lies on 20 acres of woodland so that makes it a very ideal place to celebrate the wholesomeness of nudism and oneness with nature. Members also take pride of its very family-friendly atmosphere, their campgrounds and the wide range of sports and recreational facilities. Not only that, they would organize a variety of weekend events aimed at sprucing up the camaraderie and relationship among its members and at finding an opportunity to renew their unique nudist experiences. White Thorn Lodge is also a member of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). They are also affiliated with the East Region association of the AANR.
