Big Nude Day 2019
Jul 6 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

George Washington did it, and so did Ben Franklin. Join a bunch of regular people just like you who want to have fun in the sun and water, au naturel.

In celebration of Nude Recreation Week, (July 7–14, 2019) the Hill Country Nudists,
associated with the American Association of Nude Recration (aanr.com), encourage the public to experience the stress-relieving freedom of nude recreation. Join the club and many other body-positive people on the afternoon of July 6, 2019 at Hippie Hollow Park, the only official public nude recreation area in Texas.

Your shape, size, color, experience, age and any other attributes will fade away in the sun and splash of nude freedom. Normal, everyday people with normal, everyday bodies will relax and enjoy themselves without the stresses of work life. You don’t need to stress about your body, but instead accept yourself and show up to have a great time without judgment or perfection anywhere in sight.

Hippie Hollow does have a fee per car of $15. So consider car pooling.

Hippie Hollow Day at the Lake @ Hippie Hollow
Jul 27 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

 HIPPIE HOLLOW NUDE DAY AT THE LAKE

 

Join HCN friends for a lakeside party. Feel free to arrive whenever you wish, but just to give an official start time, we will say 10 am.

This is just a fun time at the lake. We will settle in our usual spot near the second bathroom, just look for the HCN flag!

Be sure to bring sunscreen and a towel or two and any snacks or drinks you want and perhaps a chair.

***Zebra Mussels have been found at Hippie Hollow so it is recommended that one wear water shoes or regular shoes when entering the water to prevent cuts. Trust me, they are there!***

No glass allowed at Hippie Hollow! But feel free to BYOB and snacks.

The park charges $15 entrance fee per car unless you are a yearly parks member, then it is only $5. Consider meeting up at the nearby HEB and carpooling into the park to save on fees.

Feel free to invite your friends along to join us for this Summer fun!
