Welcome to Bare Mountain Retreat. Bare Mountain is located on 130 private acres just 30 minutes from Boise Idaho in a beautiful rustic setting with the friendliest folks you’ll find anywhere. We are open from late April to mid-October for nude recreation. Summer days on the mountain are usually sunny and between 75° & 95° while nighttime lows are in the 50’s or 60’s all with low humidity. Perfect for naturism. Bare Mountain is typically 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Boise so it is a great way to beat the summertime heat of southwestern Idaho.

Bare Mountain was founded in 1981 and has been in continuous operation ever since. The club is affiliated with the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and AANR-Northwest.

Experience Bare Mountain This Summer

Wake to the sounds of birds in the trees. Enjoy an early morning hike on our miles of trails, taking you to the top of Bare Mountain for the most beautiful and scenic vistas in the nudiverse. Join us in the new pool for our unique brand of water volleyball, stay for dinner and nighttime laughs around the campfire, then fall asleep to the soft breezes in the Ponderosa Pines. You’ve just had another beautiful day in paradise!

We are quite pleased with the You Know The Place Podcast presentation about Bare Mountain that was recently put together by Boise State Public Radio. We invite you to experience Bare Mountain Retreat from their perspective and voices.

The Beautiful New Pool

It happened suddenly as most disasters do. On a bright sunny day in 2019 the center piece of Bare Mountain activities suddenly gave way. Yes, the aging pool support structure had failed resulting in a large leak and a rapidly draining pool. Many of the members thought that the summer would be lost without the pool and weekly water volleyball. Thus began a two-year odyssey that culminated in July 2021 with the grand opening of the new greatly improved pool and pool deck....

Enjoy the Pool

Relax by the brand new pool overlooking the beautiful Boise National Forest or join us for our unique brand of water volleyball.
