Lake Bronson Club Family Nudist Park is nestled in the Cascade Mountain foothills, 40 miles northeast of Seattle. This beautiful, 320-acre wooded park is open year round.  It features a 7.5-acre spring-fed lake with swimming and sunning beach, and an 85-foot waterfall that cascades into the Sultan River.  There are miles of hiking trails in the park.

Lake Bronson is a family-oriented nudist club, catering specifically to those who love nature and the great outdoors.  All memberships include an affiliated membership with the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and AANR-Northwest. This guarantees high standards, and your assurance of a warm welcome at more than 200 affiliated nudist parks and clubs throughout the United States and Canada.

Privacy and security are protected at the park as you enter through a locked gate. A park office is maintained to register visitors, provide information, and be of general assistance to members and guests.

Lake Bronson Club is a nudist club, not a clothing-optional club. It is expected that visitors, members, and their guests are nude whenever appropriate; and always nude in the lake, hot tub, sauna, and showers.

The success of Lake Bronson Club has always been because of its dedicated members. Lake Bronson Club is entirely operated by its volunteer members. All members assist where they can, taking into consideration their specific skills.​

We love new visitors! We hope that you'll love it here, and we'll do all we can to make your visit comfortable and memorable.

We welcome all approved visitors, but if you want to become a member, we'd love to talk all about it to you.

Get started

Start the interview process by sending an email to We'll get back to you with everything you need to know.


Our membership process

  • To request an interview, email in advance of your visit. It takes some time to schedule the one-hour visit with two members of our membership committee, so the more notice you give us, the better.
  • You need to have visited Lake Bronson Club as an approved visitor at least once before applying for membership (finished paperwork, passed the background check, etc.)
  • Single adults, married or committed couples, and their minor children are all welcome to apply for membership. 
  • A minimum of three interviews will take place, each on a separate visit. Each must be at least three days apart. This gives you time to experience the club, and gives us time to get to know you.
  • Everyone that will be included in your membership needs to be present during the interview, including children if possible.
  • For each interview, you will be scheduled to meet with two people from our membership committee. The purpose of these interviews is to get to know each other better, and for you to have a chance to ask questions about our club.
  • All interviews will be conducted in the nude, because we are a nudist club (not clothing-optional), and you should be comfortable with nudity. If it is cold, a warm location will be selected.
  • All three interviews must be completed within a year of starting them.
  • After your final interview, your membership application will be voted on by the membership committee at their next meeting (usually held monthly). After the committee votes, you will be contacted via email regarding the status of your application.
  • You must pay for your membership within one year after committee approval, or you will need to repeat the interview process.
  • If your membership application is denied, you will not be allowed to return to our club, even as a visitor. 

Additional information:

  • Children over the age of 18 may apply for membership separately, but will still need to go through the membership process. They are allowed to stay under their parent’s membership until age 26, as long as they live at home, and are attending school.
  • If you are married, or a committed couple living at the same address, you may apply and interview for a family membership. Otherwise, each person will apply and interview for a single membership.
  • You must complete your three interviews within one year. If we request additional interviews, they can be outside of the year.
  • If you are interested in a lot rental, you need to speak to a board member about lot availability after you are approved and have paid for membership. Members of the Membership Committee do not determine who gets a lot, nor which lots are available.

Please email if you have any further questions.

Is nudism appropriate for families?

Absolutely! Nudism is about body acceptance and body awareness, which makes it appropriate for everyone. Families with children are welcome at all Lake Bronson events. While exceptions are sometimes appropriate (after-hours at a dance comes to mind), Lake Bronson's Social Committee works hard to develop events that encourage participation from all family members.

We are new to this -- do we have to take our clothes off right away?

Lake Bronson is the perfect place for people who are new to social nudism. Everyone had a "first-time," and each person gets comfortable at his or her own pace. While Lake Bronson is a clothes-free club, members dress -- or not -- depending on the weather and what is practical. Nudity is required in the lake and in the hot tub. People tend to overcome their concerns when they discover that among nudists there is every type of body, and no one stares.

What if I'm ready, but my spouse (partner, or friend) isn't?

This is common. Typically, women are more wary than men, but everyone--male and female--can have "body issues." For some, the idea of being seen nude and seeing others nude is filled with tension. A spouse, friend, or partner can help reduce the tension, but only if caution and sensitivity are exercised. Remember, every nudist had a "first time" Many who were most reluctant initially are now avid nudists. If you are in a committed relationship and are coming alone, please see our rules about obtaining written spousal consent. 

What do people like about nude recreation or social nudity?

Nude recreation is the opportunity to embrace life in the most natural way, in a beautiful outdoor setting. It feels good to be naked--to have the warm sun, soft breeze, and cool water on your whole body. Without clothes, social class distinctions disappear and we are all accepted regardless of physical size, shape, or body condition. Nudists enjoy the freedom of being clothes-free in appropriate settings, and the right to choose to wear clothes for comfort and practicality.

Is there Internet access and cell phone coverage at Lake Bronson?

Some, but escaping to the lake is an opportunity to get away from all of the cares, worries, and stress of everyday life. Laptops will work at the lodge, but service can be slow. Due to limited bandwidth, downloading programs, photos and videos are discouraged, as is playing online games. Cell phones work depending on your carrier and location within the grounds. Cell phones are discouraged on the beach. If you must take or make a call, please head for the parking lot. Landlines are available at the Office and the Lodge for emergencies.

Can we bring our dog?

Pets are the responsibility of their owners while on club grounds. Pet waste must be removed and disposed of properly. Pets are to be on a leash or under direct control of the owner at all times. No pets are allowed in club rental cabins (except the dog-friendly Cottage) or buildings or on the lake sunning lawn. Uncontrolled barking or other noise is not permitted.

Should I be aware of any etiquette or rules for nudists?

If you're not wearing something over your bottom, please sit on your towel. And don't bring glass on the beach or other places where bare feet are common. Other than that, feel free to ask the volunteers who checked you in, or any of our friendly members.

What do I need to bring on my first visit?

  • Government Issued Photo ID so we can conduct a quick background check
  • Towels (at least 2 - one to sit on, and one for lounging at the lake or in the sauna)
  • Sunblock and bug spray
  • Enough food and beverages for the day
  • Sneakers (if you want to play tennis or go biking/hiking) and flip flops/sandals for at the beach and in the shower areas
  • Flashlight (if you plan on staying after dark or overnight)

What do I do if I want to visit your club?

Either email us at or phone our office at 360-793-0286 and we'll be glad to arrange for a visit. Immediately before your visit, call the office to get the current gate code.

Do we have to get undressed on this first visit?

Yes, that's why you are visiting, right? We are a nudist resort, not a clothing-optional resort. Weather permitting, we expect you and all of our members to be nude.

I'm not a criminal! Why do you run a background check?

For the security of all members and visitors, we run a check on everyone that comes through the gate. We do not want visitors that might compromise the safety of our members and visitors.

Where can we get meals here?

Unlike years past, we no longer have a cafe. If you are planning to visit, we encourage you to bring your own food and beverages. To prepare your own meals, the fully equipped Lodge kitchen is open 24 hours a day.

Why are your day fee and lodging prices so high?

We are priced in the same range or less compared to most west coast parks. 

I don't want to join your club. I just want to rent space in your RV park for an extended period of time.

We are a private club, and our RV park is reserved for the use of our members and visitors.
