View a larger map. We strive to make wholesome nude recreation affordable for everyone. I am a widowed older man, when I found Indiana Naturists I was so happy because I have been a nudist for some time, but was looking for people to go and do things with and make new friends. After joining, Chris sent me a welcome email and was so very helpful in making me feel welcome. I went to a meeting and was so over whelmed at all the smiling and friendly faces. I was made so very welcome and had a real good time playing games and eating together.
