Rock Lodge has 145 acres of pristine woodland, focusing on its spring-fed lake.

Our social calendar is always full. There are dances, pot luck dinners, impromptu parties and Sunday "Coffee Klatch", a gathering to greet old friends and make new ones. Come discover our version of heaven.

Rock Lodge is 145 acres of paradise situated in the Highlands of New Jersey, only 40 miles from Manhattan. The heart of the club's domain is a spring fed lake which is over 1,000 feet above sea level, where nudists enjoy hot summers in the cool mountain air.

In 1907, A.L.A. Himmelwright, a New York engineer built "The Stone House" which was the first fireproof home erected in the country. This magnificent structure is still used by our members. During the Roaring Twenties the property was a training camp for Jack Dempsey and other boxers, and in 1932 it was established as a nudist club. [read more about our history.]

Today, members enjoy the grounds playing tennis, volleyball, swimming, boating, and just plain lounging. Hiking and biking opportunities abound. The Highlands Trail is a step out the gate. [read more about our sports.]

There are talent shows, lake activities, dancing, barbecues, bring-a-dish parties, arts and craft shows, bonfires and readings where active members enjoy themselves day and night from May through October. While Rock Lodge is very much a family club, represented by several generations, we also welcome single men and women. [read more about our cultural and social activities.]

Nude swimmers, boaters, and anglers all enjoy our spring-fed lake. It's always refreshing during the day and is more than comfortable for evening dips. During the cooler months, many bathers raise their body temperature in the club sauna before plunging into the water.

In the late 1800s, the property was used for timber and agriculture. There is also evidence of iron mine prospecting, possibly connected to the Edison mine works located nearby. Along with the beautiful natural setting, there is a reliable source of water located just upstream of the lake. This spring is mentioned in deeds and early leases as a water supply for surrounding neighbors as well as for Rock Lodge.
