We have members from overseas and throughout New Zealand. Some join us for the summer season, while others pass through for a visit when convenient. Naturists affiliated with other domestic or international clubs are welcome to visit. Our club has grassed lawns and hard stand sites for motor homes, caravans and tents. Most have power and access to water nearby. Other facilities include a newly refurbished club house kitchen with all the mod-cons, a clean and modern shower, laundry and toilet block. We do not have a dump station for motor home waste, however public dump stations are fairly close by.
Our club house has four bedrooms, social lounge with TV and a games area, wood burner and a large kitchen with modern heating and cooking facilities (upgraded December 2018).
At night, glowworms can be found at certain times of the year along the driveway creek overhangs and brush.
To enquire about availability, please fill out our website contact form. This is required no matter if you are a returning visitor or if this is your first visit. Your enquiry form is automatically directed to our club hosts, one of whom will make contact with you.
Once you have an actual booking, we will require you to complete our Club Booking Form. This stems from the nature of our club (social nudity) and our members desire to uphold its safe and family friendly environment. The form simply tells us a little more about you and outlines our club’s rules, do’s and dont’s.
A copy of the Club Booking Form can be viewed and downloaded here. You are most welcome to complete this prior to your arrival and simply hand it to our club hosts when you get here.
A note about our tariff structure: Nelson Sun Club is not a commercial camp. It is run for the members, by the members. There are no paid staff. Our members pay a nominal annual fee and run the club and maintain its facilities as volunteers, without remuneration.
Members of reciprocating New Zealand Sun Clubs and other international travellers with INF membership enjoy visitor and overnight tariffs in line with other, similar NZ Sun Clubs.
Other visitors are most welcome to try us, to experience our naturist lifestyle. We simply encourage such visitors to enjoy what’s on offer and consider becoming members of Nelson Sun Club. Membership enquiries: NSC Secretary
Due to our location among pine forestry blocks, undulating rural hills and valleys, mobile phone signal is generally weak. Unfortunately this means no WiFi. We have members and visitors who count that as a blessing! However, for those who must stay connected, we do have a commercial signal booster device hardwired in the club house. It amplifies and improves signal delivery to mobile phones within the immediate vicinity.
For those with mobile phones on pre-paid / top-up / pay-as-you-go or limited data, we recommend you consider a top up to your credit or data cap limits prior to your arrival.
