during my june vacation i went there many days. even enjoyed a memorial day meal with everybody. met some nice people and in the smokers tent. im not a smoker but i found my way there and had laughs with them. really odd group on site tho. poly couple kept fighting and got everyones attention. i enjoyed my time out by the pool jus laying back looking at the clouds and time in the hot tub. went for nature walks. management doesnt harass you. they let you be. they have the most awesome outdoor showers. with all kinds of nice smelling soaps. i never been to a spa but i imagine its kinda like this. which is why i look at it more as a spa then a campground. my body and mind needed this time. i would only caution that this place can be hard to figure out since they closed off an entrance. so its best to go to the site to find directions. management should look into putting out small yard signs or something pointing the way. they dont open til 10 am. would be nice if theyd open at 8 am.

I had a really great time swimming and talking with really cool people felt like they were long lost friends. Open and accepting inclusive atmosphere reminded me of my times in Negril.Jamaica just chilling with fun people.. Also my sons autism was not a problem he was included and accepted. That means a lot to a parent of an adult with a developmental difference. I will be back.

My GF and I just came back a beautiful Spa Weekend at Sunsport Gardens. Our birthdays are close together so we decided to spend my birthday at Sunsport for a Spa weekend. We contacted the local massage therapist who lives on the property and coordinated a massage each day for the weekend. We arrived to our beautiful rental trailer called the Treehouse with a large screened wooden patio and the Tree house has a queen size bed, bathroom, shower and living room area with two comfortable recliners and full kitchen with microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, freezer, coffee maker, toaster, and kitchen table. You can eat inside or on the patio. Silverware, plates. The living room are has a TV with a DVD player. We brought movies. The pool was super warm and the hot tub was clean and hot. Showers with wonderful smelling soap; peppermint, tea tree soap. Very peaceful and quiet at night. The restaurant which is open for dinner from 6-8pm was great. The soup is homemade and the boneless ribs were fabulous. I will say the people are so friendly and helpful. When you are nude all facades disappear and people are real. Everybody says hello and good morning. The property has many small ponds and vegetable gardens and even a dog park. The local massage therapist is truly a find. She is amazing and loves giving massages. This weekend was amazing and a wonderful birthday celebration for my GF and I.

Sunsport Gardens is one of the best known naturist resorts or clubs in Florida, let alone the United States as a whole. As of this writing, our only visit was just one day on a random Tuesday in January during a drive south to Miami from Port Saint Lucie -- it was still quite well attended by residents and regulars in the midst of a Florida high season. While Sunsport is popular among locals as one of South Florida's only true naturist resorts (most are in the Tampa area or further up the eastern coastline), they often see a huge influx of visitors during specific dates such as their very own Midwinter Naturist Festival, as well as other events that they may host for local non-landed clubs and national organizations alike. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, sauna, game room, fitness center, on-site restaurant, playground, courts for tennis, basketball, petanque, and volleyball, as well as walking trails and ponds that make exploring the property quite an adventure unto itself. While our time there was pleasant and everyone was extremely kind and friendly, it should also be noted that Sunsport, in our opinion, is positioned at the ethical naturist extreme of the nudist spectrum. We don't mean this in a negative way (in fact many would see it as hugely positive), but we feel it is important to note for other would-be newbies and first timers out there in order to set appropriate expectations for your visit. While beaches are clothing optional and the majority of resorts in the U.S. seem to fall somewhere between clothing optional and nudity required in the pool area only, Sunsport requires (we use that term loosely, as it is of course weather permitting and there are some other exceptions) nudity virtually everywhere on property. This is not intended as an imposition, but rather to attempt to ensure everyone is there for the right reasons and all visitors are comfortable and interacting with one another on an even playing field, so-to-speak. To this end, Sunsport proudly positions itself not only as a family naturist resort, but as one that promotes diversity and is especially welcoming to people from all walks of life.

Response from John Dodge, Marketing at Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort
Responded Sep 10, 2021
Thank you for this insightful review. Our primary goal is to bring health and happiness to visitors thru the practice of Naturism. One correction tho, we only require nudity in the immediate pool area. We are very accommodating to new/first time naturists.

I've been coming here for decades, and it is still peaceful and friendly. After several wide eyed comments about the Smoothie Bar's burgers, I finally tried one. It was delicious and Tom(cook) even made sauteed onions for me :D. A great place to unwind after a work stresses week.

Have visited Sunsport for many years as it is the furthest southern naturist camp in Florida. The grounds have improved over the past 15 years and the cleanliness has also. My main complaint is the lack of accuracy in the office area. You can book something and when you arrive they cannot find your reservation. Please take the time to have them email it to you and print it off.

So I’ve been a naturist for several years. Another girlfriend (new to naturism, except for Haulover) and I decided to go to Sunsport on the spur of the moment one Saturday, and we got there kinda late, 2ish. But day passes are good into the evening, so we could go to the Saturday dance if we wanted...and we wanted. It started at 7 or 8, and it was a beautiful day, not too hot. We got our towels (always bring a towel to sit on at naturist clubs) and headed for the pool. We were chilling out, chatting, taking in the naturist vibe, having fun! A lot of people were super friendly and laid back. We laid out for a while, asked somebody about the nature trail and spent almost an hour hiking in the most amazing jungle. My friend hadn’t been to a naturist club before and asked if they were all like this! I told her no, this one seemed special...really, really naturist with all the foliage. We came back and took an outdoor shower and then tried the huge hot tub. This place wasn’t fancy, but everything it offered was just right! We had food in the car because we didn’t know for sure if the restaurant would be open, but we could’ve eaten there. Several choices of good stuff, and not just burgers. Veggie / vegan options, too. All this for $27 and the dance hadn’t even started yet! But then things started to feel sketchy. We started paying more attention to the people coming and going, the people in the clubhouse watching TV. Even the people in the smoking area (I don’t smoke, but my friend does.) We we completely nude during the visit, which felt right at first. It was definitely right at other places I’d been, even required (here the signs say “nudity expected”, not required. But that’s based on weather, and it was sunny and warm all afternoon and evening. But a lot of people, including adults younger than us (and more men than women if you can believe it), were walking around with towels or saris around their waist. The later it got, the less naturist many people were. At first I thought it might be a rule for them being in the restaurant, but it’s not...several others were nude while they ate. This went on the whole night, and again, it was more men covering up than women. It couldn’t have been the temperature...it was weird, and my friend and I stayed to feel stared at. Ok, maybe not stared at, but super self-conscious. When 1/3 or more of naturists cover up, how is this place really naturist? Some people follow the rules but a lot don’t. If I had come alone, I would’ve left. Too weird. Nobody enforcing the nudity rules ... ok, maybe they’re not actual rules, but you expect everybody else to be nude like you, or you feel out of place. Especially in warm weather, and especially indoors! There were men playing pool (Sunsport has a game room with a nice looking pool table and ping pong table, and board games), and tow out of the four had either a towel, sari, or underwear on! If you get chilled (I don’t know how you could, but if you did), maybe throw on a shirt, but show your damn butt... you’re at a naturist club! Why bother being here if you’re not a naturist? You’re just making real naturists uncomfortable. Finally, I have to mention the dance. It’s held in a building near the restaurant and pool and was very well attended... by people wearing clothes!!! There were three of four guys and gals who were naked or almost naked, but literally everybody else was wearing clothes like they were at a normal dance, not a naturist dance! FULLY CLOTHED. Sunsport didn’t strike me as a swingers place, but I started to wonder. Needless to say, my friend and I didn’t feel comfortable at the dance, so we left early. What had started out as a super chill day turned into a weird vibe as the day progressed. Nobody hit on us or really gawked or anything like that. It didn’t feel unsafe. BUT, Sunsport is NOT currently run as a standard naturist club. It’s definitely “clothing optional” and no staff seemed to be bothered by that. We talked about whether to try again on a different day, and since everything else was great (did I mention the big, clean hot tub?!), we decided to try it again later in the summer. But we left disappointed today 😐.

Sunsport Gardens a naturist's paradise. Although it is clothing optional, certain areas, such as the pool, sauna, hot tub, volleyball courts are nude only. My wife and I are delighted to live here 6 months of the year. I normally only wear sunglasses, a hat, and a smile! Sunsport is a family camp where we have had family visit us here and we feel safe. It appears that many of the camping and travel trailer areas are located in natural openings in the Florida jungle. Vegetation is everywhere and is respected, including many tropical fruits that can be picked in season and sampled. I especially love picking a fat yellow starfruit, ripe and juicy and sweet and eat it on the spot. There are daily planned exercise and fun activities, but weekly dances as well. At the drum circle people of all ages dance naked in the night around the bonfire like nobody's watching. If you prefer solitude, there is plenty places for that too including a secluded stone labyrinth to walk and meditate Bare-footers really love it here as it is so “barefoot friendly”. The resort roads are made of packed sand so many choose no shoes. There is plenty of grassy areas and also soft pine needle coated paths to explore and experience Earthing (also known as Grounding) to Mother Earth. Many of the permanent residents enjoy growing many tropical flowers and fruits. Beautiful orchids growing in trees. We have Lamb Hass avocados, now over 5 feet tall in two years! We also have jack-fruit and mango growing. Herbs such as basil, cilantro, parsley,and other thrive! Too many types of flowers to list! Many of us feel the euphoria of being naked in the Florida sunshine, but there is so much more than the sun. We have a village here of many permanent residents and frequent visitors. Most of the “regulars” know each other and my wife and I quickly felt we were among friends. You will find just exploring around that many people will say hi and enjoy on the spot conversations. I continue to be impressed with the professionalism of the staff such as Theresa , Angel, Chris, Shalamar and James at the office, Missy and Daniel who keep the restrooms and showers frequently cleaned and stocked. Others I haven't listed. Showers are stocked with natural exotic soaps, such as Sweet-grass and Tea Tree and Peppermint. Tom, the Manager, keeps the place running well and responds to any questions or concerns. Roger heads Maintenance and keeps his team doing daily maintenance but also as quick response to needs and they occur. Example: a shower head cracked and within a half hour Shawn of Maintenance was installing a new one. Someone accidentally bumped and broke a water faucet in a camping area. Water had to be temporarily shut off, but repair was made in about 30 minutes. Nate and Charles working at a steady pace, cleaning and checking pool and hot tub, hauling leaves or trash. Cafe offers delicious healthy meals, including vegetarian. Mary makes the best spaghetti and meatballs on most Sundays. Some folks come on Sundays so they can enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs! If you are reading this, then hopefully you are a naturist or curious about a naturist resort. Please don't be scared away by reviews that may be vindictive. To me, Sunsport Gardens is naturist treasure. Here we can celebrate innocent nudity without fear of being judged. Don't pass up an experience of a lifetime--there's a good chance you won't want to leave!

"I like to watch you when you're on your site", said a man I hardly knew, a non-naturist permanent resident, whose place was just across the pond from mine. He said it to me when a few of us were sitting in Sunsport's Smoker's Lounge. Triple creepy: he's watching me, he informed me he's watching me and he informed other people too. At that moment any sense of safety and security I'd had, was gone. Another woman told me she'd been "gawked and stalked" by the same man for months. Top management told us to write an account of our experience and submit it to them, which we did. Management NEVER got back to us, but someone else did. A few days later a puncture wound was inflicted on the sidewall of the other woman's new-to-her car tire, destroying it. Top management's response: "We can't prove it was him." My response: for the rest of my stay I was afraid to sit outside on my lot and I was terrified that I would be next on his hit list, next to receive "a message". Most of Sunsport's new permanent residents are not naturists. They're here for the reasonable rates and/or, as in the example above, for more sinister reasons. There's no interview process - all they need is cash. You see them mulling around in what appears to be a kind of "Textile Support Group". And nearly every day you also see people with clothes on in the fenced-in pool area - the only place in the Resort where clothes are disallowed. Management does not enforce its own rules there. What management doesn't grasp, or doesn't care about, is that when clothed people deliberately occupy that space, they become de facto voyeurs and the remaining naturists become their unwilling objects of amusement. This is my last review of Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort. Firstly, I don't want to be at a place where I don't feel safe. Secondly, in a meeting, top management told me, "You need to take down your review" (tripadvisor.com, Dec. 2018, "Customer Diss-Service"), that "it hurts Sunsport", and that I "would probably not be able to make a reservation for next year". I was told I should have handled my concerns in-house, but I reminded them that I'd provided them with an advance copy of the review about a week before it posted. I did that as a courtesy and in the hopes they'd address the issues raised, but they completely ignored it. Then, it was gang-up time. "I'M GOING TO SUE YOU!" and "I WANT YOU OUT OF HERE NOW!", screamed Sunsport official "Tom". Since none of my concerns were ever addressed and since I don't take kindly to threats or coercion, the review stays. With management going to such great lengths to suppress information, getting an accurate picture of what's really going on there in the future will be, to say the least, challenging. I'll miss a lot about Sunsport. It has valiantly sought to make accessible to a wide variety of people, what should be a basic human right - the right to bare your skin and your self to the elements and to like-minded others. I'll miss sitting around a table or a fire and enjoying the company of naturists who are a joy to be with. The level of peace and comfort and open-heartedness made possible by this common bond is nothing less than life-affirming and soul-nurturing. And the facilities! The always open pool, sauna, and hot tub offer spa-like luxury. The grounds have decades-old plantings where great blue herons and flocks of zebra butterflies majestically go about their day. I won't miss hearing tales of mistreatment, abuse and general malaise from those Sunsport has failed on so many levels. A married male friend of mine was here for the day without his wife. He remarked on how, one after the other, a parade of men approached him all afternoon. He noted that in his nearly twenty years of visiting Sunsport, he'd never experienced anything quite like that before. Then there was the traumatized young man, a new visitor, who poured his heart out to me and my neighbor one Sunday night. He recounted how that day he'd been the target of a disturbing physical "advance" at the hands of a man while walking on the Nature Trails. And how he'd been propositioned by another man that same day! Then there's the Grandma who told me she had to hurriedly shepherd her granddaughter away from the Trails in order to shield the youngster from public indecency that was occurring there. I witnessed the reporting of these incidents to top management. Since that time, no changes in policy have been made. I won't miss dogs running loose, barking dogs, dogs sitting on the edge of the hot tub, dogs in buildings, and the doggie-do on the ground compliments of inconsiderate owners. I won't miss the poison ivy still growing inside the meeting building. "Maintenance" was informed about it months ago. I won't miss variations on the following from my permanent resident naturist friends: "I'm complaining. I can't let them hear me complain or I could be thrown out of here." I won't miss hearing accounts from numerous people that they were bullied or otherwise ill-served by Sunsport official "Tom". "It was name-calling and harassment", explained one young man. Then there's the woman who told me how upset she was when she was denied a reservation for next year. "Tom" told her there was "no room" for her RV. Incomprehensibly, a few days later when somebody else was manning the Office, she was able to make a 3-month reservation on a beautiful site that had been available all along. And there's the mid-western couple who related their story about him refusing to allow them to set up on the site they'd reserved and paid for. He relented only when they were able to produce a paper copy proving they'd reserved and paid for that site. But most disturbing to me was the elderly widow who said that during a heated argument, Sunsport official "Tom" raised his clenched fists to within inches of her face and screamed, "YOU ******* ****! I'M GOING TO MAKE YOU PAY FOR THAT!" As of this writing, she remains emotionally wrought and continues to receive medical treatment as a result of that encounter. Bad reviews can't sink Sunsport. But bad management can. As of now, those who experience and report mistreatment and misconduct are routinely ignored or removed, while those who commit or enable it, remain.

We are in pur last days of a delightful 6 week stay. This is our 4th year staying at this beautiful, natural resort. The tropical landscape is soothing, but plenty to keep you busy no matter what your interest. Activities include yoga, water aerobics, sand volleyball, petanque, tennis, pickle ball, line dancing lessons and of course relaxing by the beautiful pool and hot tub,plus much more. The onsite cafe offers fresh and tasty fare. We have booked for 8 weeks next year but shorter stays ate certainly worthwhile. Truly a beautiful and natural spot in South Florida. Tom and Karen
