Families & Naturism

The Naturist movement has always been family-centric. It is not uncommon to find several generations of families who have lived in this lifestyle.

Nudity: True Body Acceptance Will Set You Free

“We ought to be able to be comfortable being naked, and it doesn’t have to be about sex.”

– Patricia Arquette, Actress

Our thoughts exactly!

AANR West is a coalition of about thirty clubs. That means you choose the amount of clothing or lack of it that you wear. No judgments here! We want you to enjoy our events and activities without worrying about what you’re wearing or how your body looks. It’s all about body confidence.

According to a 2015 Zogby poll of American adults, 35% had gone skinny dipping at least once, and a whopping 73% believed individuals should be able to enjoy nude sunbathing at a location designated for that use.

We agree! You have rights over your body, whether its choosing to take a swim au naturel, play tennis or go on a hike. As a clothing-optional nonprofit organization–501 (c) 7, AANR West (American Association for Nude Recreation, Western Region) advocates for nudity and nude recreation in appropriate settings. We organize social events for our members. We educate and inform our members and those in the greater community about our way of life. Begin living a freer life. Call us today and find out how you can start enjoying a world of family-friendly nude recreation.

If you haven’t experienced the pure freedom of reading, hiking, bicycling, swimming, sunbathing or just being in the nude or have and want a safe environment in which to practice your way of life, AANR West is here for you. Our events are focused on good, healthy family fun.

AANR West provides education to our members about the areas where they can pursue their activities out of harm’s way, the legislation that may affect them and what their rights are. We also reach out to the greater community, many who view nudism or clothing optional groups as outcasts.

AANR West Club Highlights

Shangri La Ranch - AZ

Website: Shangri La Ranch

Come and enjoy year-round warmth and tranquil desert surroundings at SHANGRI LA RANCH. We believe that the best way to welcome newcomers to the nudist lifestyle is to allow them to ease into the nude environment at their own pace, therefore SHANGRI LA RANCH is clothing optional.


Website: Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional "travel club," which means we are a social organization of nudists and like-minded friends with no specific park or resort to call home. We meet in the backyards of members with swimming pools or Jacuzzis, or we go sailing off the coast, or we hike on secluded mountain trails, or visit local beaches where we can enjoy the surf and sand as nature intended. We also participate in many activities at the various nudist resorts in our fair state.

Mountain Air Ranch - CO

Website: Mountain Air Ranch

Mountain Air Ranch has been the focal point for clothing-free recreation in Colorado since 1935. It is said, the clothes make the man. At Mountain Air Ranch you can lose the clothing and the associated labels that society puts on them. Have you ever wondered why children love to be nude? It’s not just because they can, but because it’s liberating.

We Call Ourselves a Lot of Names

But nudist colony or nudist camp haven’t been correct descriptions for decades. Our organization now prefers terms such as nudist clubs, parks or resorts. We refer to ourselves as naturists, nudists, members of clothing optional organizations, who believe in top freedom, social nudism, family nudity and other basic human rights.
