        Nope, just to far to go for me. Wonderful place I stayed there once a while back when I ws stationed at Ft. Sill. I loved going for long walks on their trails and they have a wonderful clubhouse there too. Have fun!

          We're new to OK and haven't been to OakLake Trails yet. I take it that its couples or families only?

            Not nessesarily, call ahead. I went there by myself because my wife was out in California. I also think a nationally recognized membership helps.

              And I wasn't so I guess it varies.

                  Oh ol' Jason deleted his post again so this thread doesn't make sense. Basically he was saying that a guy going to O.L.T. must always bring his wife or girlfriend and I was telling him that I was allowed to visit and didn't have my wife with me.

                    ... Jason ... post ... doesn't make sense.
                    And that is the biggest reason, among others, to completely ignore those posts.

                      Oak Lake was a great place to go. My wife and I were members for a couple of years in the late 90's. It was great for us because it was clothing optional and she usually opts for clothing. Just the fact that she went with me and supported me was enough.

                      We've not been able to be members the last few years because we don't seem to have much time to justify the cost of a full year's membership. But this summer we called to see if we could come out for just one day. They wanted us to pay a full year's membership even though I had made it clear it was for only one day. I went to their website to maybe see if I could get any response from there. They never replied. I know they are in business to make money. But they should have some sort of policy for people in my situation. Oklahoma doesn't have many options for nude recreation. I don't believe I'll be giving my money to the owners of Oak Lake again. I don't care for the way the treat people.

                      Just my two cents.

                        Thanks for sharing that information. As new Okies its good to find out about things like this before we invest time and effort in checking them out.

                          Here is a very good article that was recently written about the place. It dosen't mention him bringing a wife or a girlfriend so I guess this answers that question. I loved the place and when I went there was no requirement to join I made it clear I was only going to be in the area a short time and just wanted to stay at a nice naturist resort.

                          Photographer gains self-esteem from social nudity
                          By Mark Schuster - The Chart (College Publisher Network)
                          October 14, 2005

                          I have always found social nudity to be a fascinating thing. What
                          would life be like sans clothing? What would my life have been like
                          if, instead of being embarrassed and even ashamed of my body, I
                          could have seen first hand that I was no different than anyone else?

                          I finally decided to find out, and I called Oaklake Trails Naturist

                          If it hadn't taken me almost three hours to find Oaklake Trails, I
                          very well may have turned around once I got there. I was very
                          nervous. I couldn't seem to make my finger push the call button on
                          the gate. I would have stood there till the end of time if an
                          elderly woman, driving a golf cart and wearing a baggy T-shirt, had
                          not chosen that exact moment to check her mail. She asked me if I
                          had a reservation.

                          I said I did, and she said to follow her through the gate. I looked
                          in my rear view mirror and saw the gate swinging closed behind me. I
                          was really going to do this.

                          After stopping at the camp office to fill out the appropriate forms
                          and receive my complementary tour of the grounds via golf cart, I
                          found myself sitting back in my van, alone and left to my own
                          devices. I realized this was the part where I was supposed to get
                          naked, which is the only part I was worried about, but which was,
                          after all, the whole point of the trip.

                          I had read the hardest part about visiting a nudist resort is taking
                          off your clothes for the first time, and it is definitely true. If
                          you can do that, the rest is easy.

                          The fact that everyone else is naked helps, too.

                          Like most people who have never experienced it first hand, I had
                          certain ideas about what a nudist resort would be.

                          To my pleasant surprise, all of the positive things were reinforced,
                          and all of the negative things were proven to be groundless. For one
                          thing, the atmosphere at Oaklake Trails was not one of extreme
                          sexual tension, as may be expected considering everyone was naked,
                          but was actually less sexually charged than, say, your normal
                          municipal swimming pool.

                          It's hard to explain, and it seems illogical, but it's true. These
                          people were not flaunting their nudity.

                          They were simply existing in a state of undress, as commonplace at
                          Oaklake Trails as firemen wearing protective outfits before running
                          into a burning building.

                          It seemed to me that social nudism would be good for my body image
                          and self-esteem, and it was. I'm not in shape and I have issues with
                          my body, but in talking to people who were willing to take the time
                          to look below the surface at who I really am, I learned that my body
                          has just as much validity as any other.

                          There were no "hot chicks" at Oaklake Trails. There were no fat
                          people, no skinny people and no old or young people. There were just
                          people. And I realized that people are beautiful simply because they
                          are people; not because they are younger, or firmer, or larger or
                          smaller than anyone else.

                          All I can say to people thinking about trying social nudism is that
                          if you think you may like it, you probably will.

                          On the other hand, if simply reading this column has embarrassed
                          you, social nudism is probably not for you. Of course, there is only
                          one way to know for sure.

                          If I can do it, anybody can.

                              There is also a new place just outside of Tulsa near Skiatook Lake.

                              Nature's Hideaway, it's a B&B for couples, but anyone can go there for daytrips much the same manner of Sun Meadow prior to 1994 (when the property was sold and owners moved to FL). They are an AANR-affiliated business. To visit OLT (I helped build the children's playground when they first started) and you need AANR membership, I can happily facilitate that through Travelites, Inc (my club) that was founded when I lived in Tulsa.
