About Us

Enjoy Social Nudity in The San Francisco Bay Area

The Sequoians is a private, family-friendly, clothes-free, nudist recreation club in a beautiful oak, bay and madrone foothill forest. We are located in a warm micro-climate in the center of the East Bay, 33 miles from San Francisco. Our secluded club in Castro Valley Canyonlands offers a private and safe environment to enjoy social nude recreation.

The Sequoians is a social membership club owned and operated by its members. Our members are the foundation of our Club and we all strive to make our club friendly and enjoyable.

Members share a variety of occupations and lifestyles. Some are married and some are single, young and old, and with and without children. Whoever we are, we all share the desire to participate in social nudism.

Nude recreation is surprisingly relaxing and freeing. Although no body is physically “perfect”, we´re all completely accepted just as we are. A day at Sequoians can relieve the stress in your everyday life. We value the diversity of every member, visitor and guest.


The Sequoians is the oldest established nudist facility in the Bay Area, incorporated in 1947. We are a charter member of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) and International Naturist Federation (INF).

During the club’s Open Season (April through October) visitors may visit four times on Saturdays, Sundays, or designated holidays before deciding if they’d like to apply for membership. Membership entitles them continued access onto Sequoians’ grounds for the purpose and enjoyment of nude recreation.

During Open Season (April-October) the Sequoians office hours are weekends/designated holidays: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

If you plan on coming to one of our evening events, you must arrive 1 hour before the gate and office close at 5 pm and pay the daily gate fee, and gain entrance. No admittance after 5 pm.

New to the idea of a nude club? Sequoians is family friendly with clear guidelines on acceptable behavior. All members are screened upon their first visit. Our goal is to maintain our solid reputation by continuing to provide a comfortable, relaxed environment for people of all ages to enjoy. We invite you to escape from the rigors of your everyday routine.
