The history of Lake O' The Woods Club is in many ways just a chapter in the larger history of Sager's Lake, a cherished local recreational spot in Valparaiso, Indiana for generations. Over the lake’s most recent 90 years, the nudists from Lake O’ The Woods Club have faced societal shifts, legal challenges, and community skepticism. Despite this, the club’s mission—offering a sanctuary for those seeking a life closer to nature—remains unchanged. Today, the club stands not merely as a vestige of naturist ideals, but as a living, evolving community that has adapted to modern life while preserving the freedom and natural beauty its founders sought. 🪐
