My Experience With FKK at Sunny Rest, Memorial Day Weekend 2014

Guest site by: Julian Smith
My FKK Weekend at Sunny Rest
I’ve been humbled in being asked by Nudist Portal (FKK) to write a guest blog about my experience with this excellent organization during Memorial Day Weekend. Because you may or may not understand, FKK is a societal-endorsement organization for naked friendly folks interested in naturism, naturism and nudie associated activities. Their first event of the season was at Sunny Rest Resort, which is nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
As stated on their website, Sunny Rest is a fun, sociable, and relaxed clothes-optional resort with day-to-day amusement and modern facilities for all ages, sexes, classes, races and body types. It was that and more.
Although this was my second season as a naturist, for some reason I was concerned to be meeting a new group, seeing a new resort, and being nude in public. Uncertain where that was coming from, but, there it is. Despite that, I was looking forward to the weekend, but got off to a late start on Friday.
FKK Tent City At Sunny Rest Memorial Day Gathering
These feelings were soon replaced by anxiety as I drove through a few rain showers and knew I still had to find the campsite and possibly pitch my tent in the rain. I arrived after the sun went down and luckily no rain was to be located. I immediately set up in the area designated for FKK near the tennis courts. I met a few new folks near the campsite and made plans to venture to the pub and hot tub.
Since a certain frisson was in the air, I remained clothed, brought a towel and made my way to Flashers, which will be the nightclub at Sunny Rest. Once I entered, I was quite surprised to find it filled with clothed women and men, couples, single guys (both old and youngish) speaking among themselves. I got this strange vibe as it looked to be a standard pub where people were out cruising for a night out on the town. I walked around the tavern in disbelief, as I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.
I made my way around the dance floor and seating area to get a feel for the place and could not locate any one slightly resembling an associate of FKK. Now that I think about it, it truly is odd to think that we’ve got a particular look. Anyway, I purchased a quick drink to settle the nerves and gazed hopefully in the way immediately behind me. To my surprise a hot tub was filled to the brim, quite literally, with several nude folks smiling, talking and laughing.

I recognized some familiar faces in the group and understood that I was house. Without hesitation, I got from my clothing and joined the group. On several occasions that odd vibe returned as several individuals (largely men) would arrive at the window of the hot tub and just stare for a couple of seconds and leave. As someone would say, this really is not suitable nudie etiquette. After some relaxation in the hot tube, it was time for bed. The weekend had only started.
To give you a visual of Sunny Rest, the main restaurant is the center point of the community. Looking out of the rear of the restaurant you’re able to see swimming pool / water volleyball court, followed by a seating area with lounge chairs three to four rows deep, and behind a decent sized heated dialogue pool. Immediately to the left of the dialogue pool was Streakers, another pub, and next to that a bath house with restrooms and showers.
On both sides of the pool were additional seating areas. The enrollment office and gift shop lives next to the restaurant in a separate building. Next to that building was Flashers, which overlooks the sand volleyball court.
With amounts of lodging starting from hotel rooms, RV lots and tent camping, the resort offers many choices when seeing. The best part of experiencing a resort with FKK is the camaraderie that is generated in several people from all walks of life with a common interest in naturist quests. As always, FKK made an effort to include everyone, including Sunny Rest members and visitors alike to participate in of the activities during the weekend.
Those who stand out in particular were the nude skid-n-slide, glow in the dark body painting followed by naked yoga with black lights and a couple volleyball games against members of Sunny Rest.

While at Sunny Rest, I determined to take advantage of the other facilities available and made it to the workout room, that was below the nightclub.
The work out space was small and confined with free weights, an individual work out bench and two treadmills that looked to have been constructed in the mid to late 1980’s. Some of the free weights were corroded, and it appeared that the update was in order. The fine thing about the gymnasium was that it was close to the pool, had a personal toilet and shower and a bottomless water fountain. In general, it was a nice option to have during a stay at Sunny Rest.
The hiking trail was another part of the FKK weekend actions and was an extremely fine way to cool off as it wound its way through the trees and forest cover. At one point in the hike, we had an alternative of an simple path or a more difficult hike.
This really is where the group split and I took the more difficult route with the majority of group. It was a pleasant hike with a little piece that challenged us with a little vertical climb. After that, it was smooth sailing. Once this demanding hike was entire, the heated dialog pool was right down the road to soothe those aching muscles.
One thing for sure, is that Sunny Rest members take their volleyball seriously. During the day, many the swimming pool was earmarked for naked volleyball. After this was complete, the whole pool was open to the general public. You could chill out in the out of bounds area of the pool; yet, you had to know about the game in the least times.
Later in the day, these same individuals ventured to the sand volleyball court for more action. In both cases, scores were kept, rules were followed, and the spirit of competition was in full effect. Novices may be tolerated, but not for a long time.

At Sunny Rest, guests have the options of a full service pub next to the pool in the mornings and days and an indoor bar with big hot tub at night. To not be a prude; nevertheless, names like, Streakers and Flashers, seem more titillating than anything else.
Not necessarily my cup of tea. Although I had a limited experience with Flashers, I was surprised to find that entry into the tavern was open to the general public (i.e. naturist, nudists and cloths) and not just members of Sunny Rest.
The neat thing about this resort was that they had a bar and eatery that served three meals a day. When going to resorts, in general, I always like to support local businesses and eateries in the community.
