New Florida Gay Campground

Thought I would share that a fairly new gay campground has opened in South Florida. Vitambi Springs is located 20 miles south of Clewston off Hwy 27. They have café, bar, pool, lots of different size cabins and about 12 RV spots, all 30amp, with full hookups. 50 more sites are in the plans.

Met with the owner who was super nice and he explained that their main visitors are urbanites who are looking for a weekend get away. Almost every weekend is a theme of some type and of course, clothing optional.

Its very isolated but can be a nice place for a weekend visit if traveling to or from the Keys and or South Florida.

Thanks for the information. Based on the website, it looks like a nice place to spend some time to relax and have fun.

And yet there are plenty of private clubs/camps/resorts that cater to naturists of all orientations. If it's okay for heterosexual people, why not for gay people? If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine but why sweat what others do?

Don't overreact to my question, I still don't see the connection between nudity and being gay. I'm okay with the cg, I just had a question.

Plus one. I think the "of course clothing is always optional" threw me off. It kinda makes it sound like well it's a gay establishment so of course you don't have to wear clothes.
If the title of the thread was New nudist gay campground it would make more sense.

Agree..the linkage plays a bit to stereotypes but how you judge that linkage depends a lot of personal perspective.

If the original post was about a "great campground for guys" and say "of course, it has big TVs and a nice sports bar" it may have been a similar sort of stereotypical linkage ...but a less conspicuous one.

I'm a big believer is welcoming all comers...and part of that, I think, is being particularly welcoming of folks who may have been invited to the party a little late. :-)

There is no connection, other than we were all born without clothes. Some gay people are naturists, just as some heteros are naturists. There are campgrounds that cater to this.

I wonder more about what tow vehicle, tires and hitches they use! Clothes optional of course!
Gotta love this forum. Never a shortage of opinions.

I have a question, and please it is meant with no offence.

Since the LGBT (hope I haven't got the letters mixed up) community is welcome in any campground, National Park or Provincial Park that I use......would the campground allow me, a married hetrosexual to stay at their campground? I haven't got a problem using a LGBT campground as I don't discriminate between sexual preference.

Cheers
Tony

On a side note....Avionstream has friends? Need picture proof.

The friends of Dorothy are and have been a welcome sub forum on the forums for a long time.
