One of Florida's oldest nudist vacation destinations, Lake Como Resort in Lutz has been a family nudist resort since 1947. In 1916, the resort celebrated 75 years as a nudist resort continuously occupying the same grounds in Pasco County, just north of Tampa. Owned and operated by its members, the co-op community welcomes guests for the day or for longer, extensive stays. Nudity is permitted and even encouraged throughout the 200-acre facility, and it is required in the swimming pool, the spa, and the sauna, where bathing suits are not allowed.

Spend the Day

When guests arrive at the resort, they must show a government-issued photo ID, like a state driver's license or a passport. First, visitors take a free, required guided tour of the property offered every day between 10 a.m and 4 p.m. Then, if staff approves, they can spend the day at the resort for an introductory fee. Singles, couples, and families with kids are all welcome. Persons under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Reservations are not required for day visits.

Stay Overnight or Longer

Lake Como Resort offers cabins, a motel, RV parking, and tent sites for overnight stays. The four South Grove Cedar Cabins have screened porches, living rooms, bedrooms with one queen-size bed, full kitchens and private baths. The Sandspur Motel has six units, each with a queen bed. The Big T Lakeview Motel has four units with a queen bed and a futon. Only the two-unit Cypress Motel allows pets.

All units are non-smoking and have TVs and mini-fridges. RV sites supply 30 or 50 amp service, and 75 sites have sewer hookups.

Enjoy the Outdoors

The facility includes a 35-acre private lake with kayaks and pedal boats available for guests, as well as a 111-acre nature preserve with extensive trails for hiking through cypress wetlands and pine woods.Outdoors activities include tennis, volleyball, pickleball, golfing, picnic areas with charcoal grills, and a sandy beach with a children's play area.

Eat, Drink, and Dance

Guests enjoy entertainment and special events year-round. The Butt Hutt bar and deck provides karaoke nights, live bands, food, and drink. The Oktoberfest, held in September, serves up German food and poolside polkas. The annual Classic Car Show in October features live music, food, and of course, great old cars on display. November brings the Veterans Weekend Freedom Festival, a tribute to military service members with a march and honor ceremony, charity auction, and chipping golf scramble.

Sexually provocative or rude speech or behavior is not tolerated, and visitors who are acting inappropriately will be asked to leave. Photography is not permitted without the express approval of the management. No firearms or other deadly weapons can be carried.
