I just got back from my visit to Cedar Creek Park in South Carolina, and I had an excellent time! Everyone was so friendly, and when it was time to leave that was the last thing I wanted to do. I hope to go back as soon as possible.
After a two or so hour drive, which I helped pass by listening to the radio play of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I arrived in Pelion, SC, and followed the directions to the park. The entrance was down a short road off the main road. I got there, called the number listed at the gate, and they gave me the code to come in.
I was kind of surprised what I first encountered when I got there... the folks that greeted me were wearing clothes! Turns out some folks decided this weekend was too cold for them, but I was fine with the temperature, so that didn't bug me. I went into the office and filled out the paperwork for them, then I went back to my car and got out of my clothes.
Yeah, the first hour or two were a little empty, as I didn't really get to have a good conversation with anybody. But I filled this time by going down to check out their namesake creek, which is very nice and peaceful. It was too cold that day, but if I get a chance to come back in the summer, I'll have to go for a float. They own about a half mile of creekside land, so during the warmer months folks can float down it.
I got back up to the main area and decided to go for a swim. The outdoor pool was too cold, but the indoor pool was nice and warm. It was here that I finally encountered some nice naked folks to talk to. I started out with a dip in the pool while no one was around. While there, various folks came in and out to use the hot tub or to have their own dip in the pool. It was cool to finally get to meet some fellow naturists and just chat.
The rest of the afternoon I spent peacefully wandering and drifting around, plus one unsuccessful attempt to actually do some homework (oh well...). At about 6:30 or 7, there was a big hot dog social dinner at two of the residents' home. Since it was getting late on a semi-cold day, there were actually a majority of folks there clothed! But it was really cool to be able to be in a room full of some naked people, some semi-clothed people, and a lot of dressed people and still nobody cared. It was an interesting experience, and it felt great. I hung out until the end and had a few more beers with the last few folks remaining and the host.
The next day was pretty calm. I hung out around the clubhouse and my car, chatting with the Canadian couple and the other guy whose RV's were parked next to my car. I also went for a 3 mile walk (or, 6 laps around the club... the route is approximately half a mile) and a swim. It was overall pretty relaxing, with nothing too eventful happening. I left a little after five with hopes of coming back as soon as I can.
If you're ever in South Carolina, I highly recommend you check out Cedar Creek.

|I travel extensively internationally (i.e. in 2007 I was home 64 days with no single visit for more than 3 days) with precious few days off to decompress. While on assignment nearby, just happened to land a few days off & called the most hospitable folks at Cedar Creek to request a day pass to catch some rays & pool time.|
Even as an "unaccompanied male," they barely hesitated and upon arrival, I was welcomed warmly. Enjoyed a few such days there & every one of them was delightful.
I greatly appreciated the warm hospitality. It was the very best part of the entire assignment away from home, family & friends. Kudos to the folks at Cedar Creek.

|It is a nice place to visit. The indoor pool and hot tub are very invited.|
Unfortunately the new owners won't be hosting the East Coast nude chili cookoff in 2010 after doing so for the past few years.
The event will be held at Serendipity, 90 minutes northeast of Atlanta in Cleveland, GA, just south of Helen.
