About Us

Forest Hills Club is a cooperatively owned clothing optional family campground located on 45 wooded acres in beautiful central Michigan.  We’re the oldest continuously operating nudist resort/campground in Michigan, having been chartered by the American Sunbathing Association (predecessor of the American Association for Nude Recreation) in 1957. We are a state-licensed campground with site facilities to accommodate RVs, travel trailers, and tent campers, with power and water hookups on each site, and a sanitary waste dump station. In addition to our more than 65 campsites, we have a clubhouse, salt-water swimming pool, hot tub, nature trail, and facilities for volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, and other activities. On weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day, we provide a varied breakfast and lunch menu. 

The grounds provide plenty of room for camping, sports activities, pot-luck dinners, dances, and water volleyball. While also providing quiet areas for moments of reflection, reading or relaxation.

While Forest Hills Club is a membership-based club, we welcome daily visitors from May 1 through October 31.

Forest Hills Club is family oriented in its approach to clothing optional recreation, and is proud to have multi generational clothing optional families among its members.  Forest Hills Club invites you and your family to experience the natural pleasure of social nudity. Our members believe in the naturalness and wholesomeness of the human body.  They believe that social nudity and the exposure of the entire body to sunlight and air is beneficial. 

When you visit, you are welcome to participate in all of our activities, or you may simply wish to sample the clothing optional experience at the swimming pool.  Either way, you’re welcome!  We ask that as a daily visitor, you arrive during business hours unless prior arrangements have  been made.  You may visit unlimited times without becoming an member if you wish.

We hope that in addition to enjoying clothing optional recreation, you will consider becoming an member of our Club.  Membership entitles you to unlimited year around access with no grounds fees, to lease a campsite at highly discounted rates, or purchase a lifetime site license for long term use.  You also become a part of the “Forest Hills Family” with a say in our decision making at meetings and the opportunity to establish long-term friendships with others who enjoy clothing optional recreation.  Couples, singles and families  are welcome.

Forest Hills Club is affiliated with American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and the AANR Midwest region.  AANR is the country’s largest  and most respected nudist organization. As AANR members we support and promote  the following principles. “We recognize the essential  wholesomeness of social nudity.  From exercise to relaxation, physical health and  mental well being we are enriched through social nude recreation.  We have the right  to practice social nudity in appropriate settings, provided we do not infringe  on the rights of others”. 

We are a proud member of the Ionia Chamber of Commerce.
