KANSAS      MAP

      Kansas does not have any public lands established as nudist sites. However, it is worth noting that two of the entities listed below—Lake Edun and Camp Gaea—function essentially as private non-profit day-use parks available for a low entry fee. Both are open to everyone, but Lake Edun is more traditionally family oriented while Camp Gaea has a heavily gay and somewhat counterculture following.

NUDE BEACHES

      Hippie Hole [3] 43.8932N, 103.3667W  is a very secluded swimming hole deep in the forest south of Rapid City, not far from Mount Rushmore. This site sees sporadic nude use.


TEXAS      MAP

NUDE BEACHES

      Conservative Texas is home to one of the top interior nude beaches in the U.S. A short drive west of the liberal oasis of Austin, Hippie Hollow [1] 30.4128N, 97.8825W  is a beautiful lakeshore site in a county park where the option of being naked is officially sanctioned. Hippie Hollow is the most popular nude beach in the southern part of the U.S. between Florida and California.

      The Austin vicinity has a few other sites that see occasional nude use, although they are eclipsed by Hippie Hollow. Within the city limits, the Barton Creek Greenbelt [3] 30.2489N, 97.8129W  is a bit of an "urban wilderness," and there are a couple of spots along the creek where sporadic, discreet skinnydipping occurs. Farther afield about 35 miles west of Austin, Gracy Cove [3] 30.4526N, 98.0318W  is an area within Pace Bend County Park where discreet nudity occurs.

      After Hippie Hollow, the next most popular nude beach in the state is located along a remote stretch of the Gulf Coast in southeastern Texas. About 60 miles east of Houston, Bolivar-McFaddin Beach [3] 29.5676N, 94.3395W  has been visited by nudists at least since the late 80's. Getting there can be challenging because the nude area is accessed via a badly storm damaged road that has never been repaired, but this site has emerged as a relatively safe haven for nudists despite occasional brushes with intolerant authorities in the past.

      Padre Island is the 130-mile-long barrier island along the Gulf Coast that extends from Corpus Christi south almost to the border of Mexico. There are two nude beaches associated with Padre Island, one near each end. The more popular and better established of the two is at South Padre Island [2] 26.3132N, 97.1991W  , located north of the town of the same name and accessible only by driving along the beach for several miles. This remoteness has made the beach a safe haven for nudists. At the other extreme, North Beach of Padre Island National Seashore [3] 27.4649N, 97.2796W  near Corpus Christi is a much less-established nude site where discretion is in order.

      In the Dallas area, Queen's Point in Westlake Park [4] 33.0937N, 96.9941W  in Lewisville is a lakeshore gay nudist hangout that has seen better days. Crowds diminished substantially after brushes with authorities in the 90's, and nude bathers have never returned in significant numbers, but a trickle of men continue to discreetly sunbathe nude at this hidden spot.
