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.

"You deserve a circle of inclusion and influence, but it’s up to you to create it."

AANR West: Supporting Our Members And Our Clubs

Embark on a journey of self-discovery and liberation with AANR West! Our organization offers a range of activities that allow members to explore clothing-optional recreation in a safe and welcoming environment. With members hailing from states across the Western US, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming, as well as western Mexico, AANR West is a diverse community where everyone is welcome.

Our mission at AANR West is to provide our members with comprehensive education and support services. We want our members to feel comfortable and secure as they pursue their interests, and we work hard to ensure that they have access to the resources and information they need to do so. Whether it's finding a safe and legal place to enjoy clothing-optional recreation or understanding their rights under the law, our members can count on us to provide them with the guidance and support they need.

But our mission doesn't stop with our members. AANR West also strives to educate the public on the benefits of social nudism. We believe that everyone can experience the joy and freedom that comes from shedding their clothes and embracing their natural selves. We host events that are focused on providing good, healthy family fun, and we welcome individuals of all ages, genders, marital statuses, religious beliefs, ethnic origins, and sexual orientations.

We know the power of true freedom at AANR West. There's nothing quite like feeling the wind blowing across your skin and the sense of liberation that comes from being carefree and unencumbered by clothing. We want everyone to experience that same sense of freedom and joy. So, if you're looking for a safe and welcoming community where you can explore your interests and find your inner peace, join us at AANR West today!


“As I’ve said on occasion (and others have essentially said here), clothing is a tool. Carry it around when you have a need; don’t when you don’t. The goal is not so much a clothing free world, in my opinion, as a clothing-optional one, so if you like to wear clothes for whatever reason–just occasionally or all the time–I say that’s quite all right.”

AANR West Club Highlights

Las Vegas Bares

We just want to be naked and have fun in the sun. The Las Vegas Bares sponsors Nude and clothing-optional day and overnight trips to hot springs or landed nudist resorts. We have scheduled clothing-optional hikes and nude kayak day trips. Full MOON nude hikes, Nude overnight kayak excursions on the Colorado River, and visits to neighboring nude resorts in CA and AZ.   Sometimes we also have nude pool parties with NUDE Water Volleyball, and a sundeck to get your all-around tan! Come out and enjoy an afternoon of relaxing naked in the sun or recharge your mind and body with a free hike in the desert.

Mira Vista Resort

Welcome to Mira Vista – America’s “newest” and “oldest” clothing-optional resort. Mira Vista opened in May of 2006 under a new name and a new policy of wholesome nude recreation on an old property with a history dating back to the 1850s.

The resort is a step back in time, starting with the main building hacienda, home to the lobby, office, dining room, gift shop, library, and Old West saloon. Fourteen guest suites in original adobe-style buildings are accented with local rock and mortar walls. The 30-acre grounds are filled with mature trees, saguaro cacti, and many other native desert plants. Desert animals and birds are plentiful and sightings are common in this largely rural area.

It’s hard to believe that this great escape from the city is just 3 miles from Interstate 10. Words and pictures can’t convey all of the special charm and character of this unique resort. Being able to enjoy it all clothes-free just adds to the level of relaxation. Mira Vista is open to day visits. ****

Olive Dell Ranch

Olive Dell Ranch is Southern California’s favorite nudist resort for families and couples. Located in Colton, California Just a few miles from San Bernardino and Riverside. Olive Dell’s central location is close to many of Southern California’s main tourist attractions. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy the nudist/naturist lifestyle whether visiting for the day or an overnight stay.

Our nudist club offers: Rental cabins, Hookups, and Campsites for extended stays

Numerous amenities such as Tennis court, Hiking, Swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and Sauna

Short Story

The Barefoot Bikers

The Barefoot Bikers is a story of friendship, adventure, and freedom. It all started on a warm summer's day when five friends decided to embark on a thrilling bike ride in the countryside. The wind was blowing through their hair and the sun was shining on their faces as they rode through the winding roads, taking in the beautiful scenery. After a few hours of cycling, they stumbled upon a quiet riverside spot and decided to take a break.

As they sat there, admiring the peaceful surroundings, one of them suggested taking a dip in the cool water to cool off. Without hesitation, they all stripped down to their birthday suits and jumped in. The feeling of the water on their skin was exhilarating and liberating at the same time. They felt free and alive, and it was a moment that none of them would ever forget.

From then on, their naturist expeditions became a yearly ritual, eagerly anticipated by all. They explored new places, met new people, and experienced the beauty of nature in its purest form. They learned to appreciate the simple things in life and the joy that comes from being in harmony with the natural world.

The Barefoot Bikers is more than just a story about a group of friends who enjoy being naked. It's a story about the transformative power of adventure and the importance of cherishing the beauty of the world around us.

The Many Names We Take Pride In

Our organization has undergone significant changes over the past few decades, with a focus on providing more detailed and comprehensive descriptions of the locations where we practice and enjoy our nudist lifestyle. While terms such as "nudist colony" or "nudist camp" may have been accurate in the past, we now prefer the use of terms such as "nudist clubs," "parks," or "resorts," which better reflect the diverse and welcoming nature of our community. Additionally, we have adopted new terminology to describe ourselves, including naturists, nudists, or members of clothing-optional organizations, highlighting the positive and respectful aspects of our lifestyle.

We believe that our lifestyle is grounded in basic human rights, such as the freedom to express oneself and the freedom to be comfortable in one's own skin. Our organization is committed to ensuring that these rights are protected and respected, and we work tirelessly to promote acceptance and understanding of our way of life. In addition to advocating for top freedom, social nudism, and family nudity, we also support a range of initiatives aimed at promoting body positivity and inclusivity, including educational programs, community events, and outreach activities. By working together, we can build a more open and accepting society that values diversity and celebrates the beauty of the human form.
