This was my first experience in a nudist camp. It was wondrful. Very relaxful. Everyone made me feel very comfortable. Very family oriented. They (staff and campers)instantly made me feel like part of a family. I was trying it fo a day or two and ended up staying for a week!
This is definitely not a swingers resort. It is very family oriented. It has several events during the year and families are always welcome. I don't have a clue where the idiot that said it is a swinger resort got their information. I think if you choose to vist you will find some very nice and friendly people that will welcom you into the nudist lifestyle.
We enjoyed the friendly and welcoming atmosphere at this relatively small nudist resort which is conveniently located only about 15 min. from an Intersate highway in eastern Connecticut near the RI border. There was a nice mix of people: about evenly balanced detween male and female ranging in age from mid-20's to 60's; mostly couples, but several singles. There were also a few families with children ranging in age from infants to mid-teens. So this is a kid-friendly place too. There were mostly "regulars" there the day we visited (folks who keep RVs there for the season), but there were probaly a dozen or so day visitors like ourselves. The regulars were very welcoming to the guests, inviting us to join in a fun game of nude water volleyball.
Sun Ridge has the usual amenities of most nudist resorts: swimming pool, hottub, tennis and volleyball courts and petanque. Sun Ridge also has a huge grassy field for softball and other activities (their website mentioned something about golf, but we didn't see any evidence of that. There are separate indoor restrooms and showers for men and women, as well as an open outdoor communal shower outside the pool that anyone can use.
The only downside is that SunRidge is a bit spartan. The pool deck--which is the only area where people sunbathe--is narrow and made of concrete and can get somewhat crowded. And if you can't find an open lounge to lie on, the concrete deck can be, obviously, uncomfortable. The area around the pool is just gravel (no grass) and is not especially attractive. Hint to owners: planting some nice sod here would improve the aesthetics and provide a nice sunbathing alternative. Also, no food is sold here, so you have to bring your own.
If this is your first visit, you just drive up to the gate, follow the instructions on use of the free phone to call the office and the staff will instruct you to drive in. There is a small parking area just before the office lodge. After you register and pay the day fee most visitors leave their clothes in their cars and head to the pool area. We saw a few females wearing sarongs as they walked between the pool and the RV's or the office lodge (where you can purchase limited snacks), but almost everyone else was nude regardless of whatever activity they were pursuing.
First of all we have no idea why that first reviewer would write that review. We were greeted by a nice staff person at the desk and were told about all the events coming up. No mention of swinging. Though I must admit some niave people assume nudists are swingers and swingers are nudists...so not true. Anyway, there was a potluck dinner we were invited to even though we didn't have anything to bring. People there said hello and welcome. The pool was absolutely clean - a little cold for me but clean. The bathrooms were "rustic" but well stocked with 3-4 rolls of TP in each stall!!!! hot and cold running water with soap and papertowels. And very clean.
There was a game room with pool table and Wii machine, ping pong and darts.
Make sure you bring your own food though - there are no amenties to sell food, just snacks and drinks in the office. Hubby loved being able to drink his beer poolside.
We will definitly be back.
