Bonita Resort UPDATE:


Bonita Retreat is No Longer a Nudist Resort

Statement on the Bonita Website:

"Due to the economy and other factors, we are unable to continue in the naturist venue as Bonita Nudist Retreat and are retiring from it. We will be reopening on May 15, 2012 as a textile camping facility under the name of Aspen Family Campground (www.aspenfamilycampground.com).

We would like to thank everyone for their patronage and support. We hope you will visit us in our new format.
Jerry & Annie

Relax by the Pool at Bonita Nudist Resort


Bonita Nudist Resort. Once in a while, we should reward ourselves. Going back to nature, even if only for a weekend, restores the spirit as little else can. Exploring the woods, or a mountain meadow, dipping into a cool, clear pond or sleeping under the stars ... these things take us back to a calmer life that is all too often forgotten in our hurry-up sometimes hectic world. This is the essence of camping.

Taking it one step further, imagine all of this peace and beauty in a naturist surrounding, free of one of the strongest reminders of the world we so dearly need to retreat from: Our Clothes. Imagine a place where no one is judged by appearance but is accepted only as God himself created him. Imagine an environment where even children can play in complete safety and peace. Sound impossible? Welcome to the world of naturist camping. Welcome to Bonita Nudist Retreat.

Enjoy the beautiful, hidden lake for fishing. swimming, a paddle boat and rowboat ride or just to relax and admire the beauty. There is also a grass covered beach area with lounge chairs, as well as more private areas surrounding the lake for sunning and total relaxation. Walk nude on the secluded and deeply wooded trails, while enjoying a wide variety of plant and animal life. There are 40+ RV & Tent sites, spaciously located throughout the grounds, available with water and 30 amp electric. There are several 50 amp service sites for larger motor coaches, which feature easy access. There are also rustic camping areas.

Bonita Nudist Retreat is a 100% AANR club. Subscribing to the principles of the family style nudist environment. Local attractions include the New York Wine Trail, Watkins Glen, Tioga downs, Corning Museum of Glass, golf courses and many more. We are situated on 100 beautifully wooded rustic acres featuring 40 campsites with modern electric (30 and 50 amp) and water, rental rooms, a heated pool, hot tub, 5 acre pond, hiking trails on the grounds, snack bar, the Full Moon disco, Wi-Fi and the friendliest people you will ever meet. Come home to Bonita.

Bonita Nudist Retreat is located in Central New York State in the Finger Lakes Region. Bonita Nudist Retreat is just 18 miles south of Ithaca, NY, near Cornell. Bonita is open May 1 thru September 30 and pre and post seasoon depending on the weather.

Guests and members run the gamut of body types and sizes. However, the emphasis at Bonita Nudist Resort is on common, united ground, not on our body images. We promote the right of individuals to be nude in a social group setting where conditions are appropriate. All guests have a right to enjoy the grounds as long as their behavior is acceptable for a "family-type" setting, and is not offensive to others. Every guest is entitled to their personal viewpoints and lifestyle, so long as they do not attempt to force others to share them. Located on 100+ beautifully wooded acres in the hamlet of Candor, New York, and just 18 miles south of Ithaca, Bonita is a respected member of the local business community.

Remarks:
"I just received word that Bonita has gone "textile" due to the poor economic climate and other circumstances. I am very sad about this change. This campground has been around for many years, and even though I am relatively new to naturism, I have really enjoyed my experiences at this campground. I will miss the opportunity to meet new naturists, and I will miss the chance to socialize with the many naturists I consider my friends. I will especially miss the close proximity to my home. Now, sadly, I am left looking for a different facility to continue my pursuit of naturism. Unless there is one in either Tioga or Broome County that I do not know of, I will be driving further and paying more to patronize Empire Haven, although I will be attending less frequently than I could at Bonita." - Richard from New York

Remarks:
"This was our first visit to Bonita Retreat and it will not be our last. Unlike other more populated campgrounds, it was very clean, peacefully wooded, up to date facilities with a large touch of warmth. Due to the overall layout, it never looks crowded, you are not stuck in a big field and if you seek privacy, it is easy to find. The campsites are spacious and the pond was especially beautiful. We were also invited to a communal meal that was excellent for the mere cost of a nominal donation, as we were not prepared to contribute a dish of our own. But no matter, we were made to feel welcome anyway. We recommend it highly." - Daniel and Mary from USA
