Members who bitterly grieved the loss of the Crocus Grove nudist club after new campground owners discontinued nudism have landed on their bare feet. "We're building our new home — our new playground! I'm champing at the bit to get there and see this place started," says longtime nudist Bob Migliore.
This summer, they'll be working on infrastructure for the tent and mobile unit lots, a new pool, hiking trails, volleyball courts and a rec centre. "It's not likely we'll have the pool finished this year," adds Migliore, wistfully. "This summer won't be for brand-new nudists, unless they're willing to work," he says. "But we've already had some surprising offers. People who are non-nudists have even volunteered! We had some ladies say, 'We'll come by with a shovel and an axe if you'll just let us tent nearby.'" Nothing like a work site with a view.
