Friends of Gunnison is a non-landed, American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) affiliated club. We have no clubhouse, We do not own property. Our club's location is beautiful Gunnison Beach at Sandy Hook, NJ. The clothing optional beach attracts nearly 5,000 naturists per weekend in the summer months. Many of the beach regulars formed this club to foster community and fun among the members. There are over 200 members in the club.
You do not need to be a member of Friends of Gunnison to go to Gunnison Beach because it is a part of the Gateway National Recreation Area located at Sandy Hook, NJ. The park and its beaches are run by the Department of the Interior and the National Park Service. The Clothing Optional Beach is fully sanctioned with National Park Service Lifegurards and Facilities at the non-clothing optional Entrance to the beach. There is also a "snack shack" on the beach.
We invite you to visit the beach and enjoy a day of ultimate freedom. The beautiful view of New York is wonderful. The park does close on high volume days when the parking lots get full, so arrive early to get a good spot. As long as the weather is nice, there are visitors.
There is a large group of volleyball players at Gunnison Beach. The net is in place from early spring to late fall. If you love to play volleyball, come try your luck at beating our championship team. Our team also competes at White Thorn Lodge's Volleyball Superbowl, in September.
