The Ponderosa Family Nature Resort is open year round for your recreational pleasure.  The Pond, as it is affectionately known by its members, is a warm and friendly environment.  It is a place to relax, be yourself, make new friends and have lots of fun.  The facilities are second to none and the grounds are always immaculate.  If you are planning to try nudism for the first time, we can't imagine a more comfortable and supportive place to take the plunge.  Everyone is welcome at the Ponderosa Family Nature Resort.


HISTORY

The Ponderosa Family Nature Resort was established in 1964 by a German family.  Since then, nudists from all over the world have enjoyed the nudist lifestyle at the Pond, all year round.  Our summer event calendar is very full and there are quite a few different events in the winter as well.  The indoor facilities are open year-round.  

In 2002, Lee Klauz purchased the Ponderosa Family Nature Resort and has made many additions and improvements to the facilities.  Her visions included an outdoor heated conversation pool, outdoor bar and outdoor 18-20 person hot tub, which are all now in operation and greatly received by the members and visitors to the Pond.  Many more exciting improvements are yet to come!  Lee is committed to naturism and takes great pride in providing wonderful facilities for visitors, members and the residents who live at the resort year round.

The Ponderosa Family Nature Resort hosts many events during the year.  We are best known for one of the largest Nude Volleyball Tournaments in Ontario.  Our Hawaiian Luau and Pig Roast features plenty of food choices with something for every taste.  Our Monster Mash (Hallowe'en Dance) is a real treat for all with some of the most inventive costumes ever seen!  


Lee and her staff strive to make the Ponderosa Family Nature Resort an experience you will never forget and a place you will always want to return to.


Reservations are recommended for the motel rooms and camping spaces.  Seasonal lots are available.  Check the Bulletin Board inside the clubhouse for trailers and cabins for sale.


We accept Visa and Mastercard.  Please note that there is no ATM located on the property.  Parking is free.
