Welcome to Kaniksu Ranch Family Nudist Resort
Kaniksu Ranch is a resort for nudists. We are affiliated with AANR, American Association for Nude Recreation. Our beautiful resort is located way past the end of the Deer Lake traveling north on North Deer Lake Road. There is a locked gate but if you call our office ahead of time we can give you the combination. From that point, you just need to drive a little further into the forest following the signs and turning left at a four way junction down another road till you come to a rustic entry way to our resort. Once through this entrance you’ll find the office on the left side of the road directly across from the swimming pool. On the outside of our office building, we have lockers, a small kitchen including the use of a refrigerator/freezer (limited space on busy weekends) and outdoor showers. You must check in with the office upon arrival, ID is required. We have 2 bocce ball courts, a pickle ball and a volley ball court. We also have a children’s playground and horseshoe pits in the same area. In the office building you’ll find bathrooms, a shower, coin operated washer and dryer for towels etc, as well as a sauna.
** Visitors are not allowed to have cameras of any kind on the resort at any time. Please leave cell phones in your vehicle **
A little further north next to the flag pole, you can find a large pond with turtles! A long time ago, this pond was the resorts swimming pool. Our clubhouse Offerdahl Hall, is just above the large grassy area to the northwest of the pond. There is a large deck with tables and chairs and many BBQ’s that are yours to use if needed. Breakfasts & dinners are served there in the clubhouse on Saturdays and breakfast Sunday, during the summer season. Please RSVP if you plan on purchasing a meal while here. We have 10 rooms for rent above the clubhouse as well. Please check with the office about availability. There is another community refrigerator inside the main floor, a microwave, more chairs and tables as well as a TV and sitting area next to a huge wood burning stove. This portion of the clubhouse will be remodeled soon. On the outside are more bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers and a hot tub! Swimsuits are not allowed in both the pool or hot tub. We strive to maintain safe clean water in both the pool and hot tub cleaning them daily. Showers to remove all body lotions, deodorant and body oils are required prior to getting in.
Our resort is approximately 260 acres, with camping and RV spaces throughout the property. We do offer electricity and water hookups at various sites. Our land is somewhat hilly, with many trails for walking, hiking and biking. We are a pet friendly resort too! Your pet must always on a leash and messes picked up no matter where they make them. No one likes to walk through a messy trail. Pets on a leash are welcome on the roads and trails and in campgrounds, though not in the buildings or other facilities. Remember, pets look like food to some of our wilder guests, so use caution if you encounter a moose or other wildlife residents.
Kaniksu Ranch is not clothing optional, but there are times when weather, health or safety make clothing appropriate. First time guests frequently are comfortable enough to undress within a half hour of arriving! We won’t rush you. We are a family friendly resort and have been since we opened in 1939. Our members and visitors range in age from babies to great grandparents. We enjoy the sun, sport activities, social gatherings and just plain relaxing. Anyone who comes here for other reasons or acts inappropriately will asked to leave.
BBFR, Bare Buns Fun Run is our biggest event of the year. The run is always the last Sunday of July. People from all over the world enter this nude race and the resort is clothing optional during this event. You can race partially or completely nude or fully clothed if you choose. Tent and RV sites go fast so make sure to reserve a spot a head of time. You can also come up to watch the race for free on that Sunday. We typically have 400 participants for this event. Music and dancing on Friday and Saturday make this weekend a blast!
Our busy times are on the weekends but we are open 7 days a week from Memorial Weekend to Labor Day. We also host a monthly open house with no day fee. Be sure to check our upcoming events page for dates and details. You do not have to be a member to visit our beautiful resort. We welcome everyone regardless of age, body type, marital status, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. You’ll love it here so much you may want to become a member too!
We look forward to your visit!
