Camp David, located in Florida, is a clothing-optional private membership, men’s only, RV, and Day Retreat. They pride themselves on the friendly and welcoming community spirit that they have created over the years. It’s a place where old friends can reunite, and new friendships can be made!

The gay RV campground has large shade RV campsites with electric hookups, plus other amenities like a general store, clubhouse, shuffleboard, nature trails, and three small lakes. They throw regular potluck dinners for all the major holidays, creating an excellent atmosphere for all their guests.

Another gay-owned and operated campground that is open to all is Starlite Trailer Lodge. The owners have created an inclusive campsite from scratch after acquiring the gorgeous land over twenty years ago. Since then, they’ve slowly created this beautiful community in remote North Carolina.

This isn’t the campsite to throw a wild party and post pictures to Instagram. In fact, there’s no cell service at all! When you’re here, it’s time to slow things down. Enjoy river activities like wading, tubing, floating, and swimming while enjoying their RV or tent sites. 

Windover Women’s ResortOwendale, Michigan

We’ve seen a few campgrounds for men only, but Windover Women’s Resort is for ladies only! Windover is a safe space for adult women to kick back and let loose. This RV campsite has set out to create a welcoming place for women to make lifelong friendships while enjoying the great outdoors.

This spot has tons of fantastic amenities to enjoy while you’re kicking it with the ladies. Being in Michigan, they have a heated swimming pool plus a camp store, clubhouse, dance area, campfires, and more. They also throw epic themed parties for holidays and other events like the Chili Cook-Off, Vegas Weekend, Women on Wheels, and more.

Just about an hour away from Savannah, the campground is surrounded by six freshwater lakes and springs, three of which are prime for fishing. In addition, they’ve been voted the friendliest and best food by Gay Camping friends, so you know they’re having a great time. Plus, there is always an exciting themed weekend to look forward to.

For a truly secluded, primitive campground on sacred land, check out El Morro RV Park and Cabin Rental. This simple park, located just two miles from El Morro National Monument, often sees wild animal visitors and has preserved the beauty of the land.

While the campsite is simple compared to others on our list, they have crafted an LGBTQ2S supportive environment so everyone can enjoy what mother nature offers.

SIRenity Farms – Sullivan, Missouri

Another clothing-optional men-only campground is SIRenity Farms! This RV campground was voted the number four best gay campground. Relatively new to the scene, this park is also clothing optional. The facilities are still nice and new, and owners Dennis and Michael have worked hard to create the perfect retreat atmosphere. 

The vibe at SIRenity is laid back and fun! Visitors can hang out by the pool, go fishing, take a hike through the woods, or hang out and BBQ with their new friends. There are plenty of RV spots, but if you don’t have one of your own, you can rent one of their vintage trailers or cabins to stay in.
