About the Ranch

Everyone will be staring at me!
- If you walk through a mall nude, people certainly would. Here everyone is nude and it is highly unlikely.
I'm (pick one) - too fat, too skinny, etc.
- Our members are not beauty queen or Greek gods, just ordinary people like you.
What if someone I know is there?
- If they are here, they are nude also. Now you have something else in common.
What if someone finds out I'm a nudist?
- We go to great lengths to protect the privacy of our members and guests. Nudism is really not anything to be ashamed of; it is practiced worldwide.

On October 7, 2014, the cofounder of the Bar S Ranch, Harvey Ellis Stewart, Jr. passed away at Baptist Memorial Hospital. He was born on November 23,1940 and spent most of his life promoting the nudist lifestyle. Ellis started the Dixie Sun Club in Georgia before moving to North Carolina. Ellis and Wanda purchased the first 200 acres of the Ranch and used it for cattle farming for several years before opening the Bar S Ranch in 1989. Several charter members gathered by the lake and floated in inner tubes before the first clubhouse was built. An additional 200 acres was purchased, another clubhouse built and the Ranch became one of the largest landed clubs (in acreage) in the United States.
The Bar S Ranch will continue to thrive under new management and the legacy will be preserved.
