Nudes-A-Poppin’ For Dummies


Ponderosa Sun Club calls Nudes-A-Poppin’ “an annual pageant featuring nude males and females competing in erotic dance.” We call it a contest for strippers. It’s been described as “The World’s Largest Outdoor Nude Beauty Pageant.” We call it an open house at a nudist camp. Describe it any way you want to, it’s considered one of the best festivals in the world.

NAP’s been around since the 70s and since then it’s been featured on Playboy’s Sexcetera and has been ranked as the top festival by

NAP is a 1-2 day event that takes place once a year (usually in July) that draws people from all over America and even the world. And with trophies for various categories such as “Miss Nude Galaxy”, “Miss Nude Go-Go”, “Miss Nude Up & Comer”, “Miss Nude Rising Star”, “Miss Nude Showstopper” etc., it’s pretty easy to understand why Roselawn was rated #1 of the “10 Kinkiest Cities” by Quite an accomplishment for an otherwise unknown small town in Midwest America.

Many famous faces including Porn stars, strippers, and nudists have hosted and even participated in the event. Some of the names that have billed over the years are Ron Jeremy, Devon Michaels, Mary Carey, Vern Troyer, Home Improvement star Tim Allen, The Munsters star Al Lewis, John Wayne Bobbitt, Gilbert Gottfried, Gene Simmons, John Popper, Vanilla Ice and Phil Varone.

Where to go:

Nudes-A-Poppin is held at the Ponderosa Sun Club in Roselawn, Indiana.

Where to park:

There’s parking all around the camp, usually grass or dirt, so keep that in mind because it can be very muddy when it rains. Get there as early as possible as the best and closet spots disappear very quickly and the line to get in is long. Many people camp out overnight to be the first to enter.

How to dress:

The official website states “no clothes are tolerated at the pool.” Everyplace else is ok. Nudes-A-Poppin’ is a clothing optional event but if you’d rather not ditch your duds dress as you would for any summer festival.

What to bring:

A lightweight, comfortable chair, blankets for laying in the grass, cooler, food, drink, sunscreen, sunglasses and a camera to record all the action.


Still camera photography is allowed almost anywhere on the grounds during NAP and video cameras are allowed in certain areas.
