Fairly new to the naturist movement but being less than an hour away from here it was only a mater of time before I gave it a try. Having been to Hanlon's point I was not a complete newbie but I had my reservations still. My visit was for the day only however I do plan on returning for an... More

That total resort feeling. Our room was clean and had all that we needed. The shared bathroom was not even an issue. The evening entertainment was great. The weather was good, the pools are refreshing, the swim up bar is a great way to meet other people and the mixed drinks were delicious. The food was filling and the portions... More

My partner and I have discovered that we enjoy this type of thing and have found a great place down south. We were hoping there would be some place comparable to it in Ontario. While this place is still a bit rustic it's a lot better than the other option close to Toronto. We look forward to returning. Just a... More

We are annual members of the resort, and visited Feb 28th for a swim and sauna. To our surprise, the pool was not heated since grouting repairs earlier in the week. The resort facilities closed for the first 2 weeks of January, so I would have expected scheduled maintenance to happen then. In addition to the lack of swimming pool,... More

Great "naturist" park, but more so, clothing optional. The downside is that too many use that option to just "take a peek" with no intention of trying naturism. The upside is if your partner plain out refuses to go to a naturist park for fear of having to be naked, then, here you have the option to take him/her to... More

We have been to many resorts and this is one of the best. Facilities are very nice (major exception is tennis courts which are arguably worst I have played on) but tennis is not only reason to visit. Food and drink were VERY good and VERY reasonable priced. Dance was a lot of fun - good DJ and nice mix... More

We have been members of this resort for a number of years and in fact spend most of the summer months visiting the club on a daily basis. We spend most of our visits lounging in and around the pool or soaking in the conversation pool/bar. It's a great place to get an all over tan. We find the prices... More

Had the pleasure of attending the Ponderosa's nude music festival and was thoroughly impressed with everything! The grounds were beautiful even after a week of non-stop rain... the pools were warm and everyone was friendly. GREAT music and atmosphere. Can't wait until next year's event but will be back before then to enjoy all the great facilities here. Thanks for... More
