Paradise Valley Update

Some clubs grow and some decay over time.  Paradise Valley hasn't stopped growing in years.  The growth is from the owner reinvesting everything he makes back into the club.  It really does show.  The latest addition is new cabanas and a country bar (coming soon).  Where is the root of the money?  Drink sales.  It's powered by alcohol.  And there's nothing wrong with this.  The other obvious observance is that the people are changing. While there are still some nudists living or playing at the valley, the club now has a strong lifestyle following.  Lifestyle organizations are sponsoring parties at the club.  The club's marketing has been encouraging this change over the years.  A few years ago, you would see grandparents and kids playing in the pool but that is no longer the case.  The thing is, grandparents don't spend a lot on drinks. One of the staff quoted that "technically it's a family park."  I and others corrected them that it was not.  It has AANR status but that's absolutely where it ends. Again, we aren't criticizing, simply alerting potential visitors of what to expect. That said, it is still one of the nicest and cleanest facilities you'll visit.

Mountain Creek Grove, Cleveland GA – Pt. 2

We decided to revisit "The Grove" for a 3-day weekend in June of 2015.  We had a problem with our motorhome on the first day so we didn't get out to the pool.  The facilities were nicely kept and we got set up quickly.  We did walk over late to the bar area and there wasn't much happening. The following day we got towels on some chairs and got some sun.  Eventually, a water volleyball game broke out and our male half played.  The rules were very loose but it was fun.  This was a theme night so we went with the theme.  It was a potluck dinner and the food was really good.  We talked to some locals during dinner and had pleasant conversation. This IS a lifestyle resort and we knew that.  After dinner, we walked around the RV court and talked to some people about various things not lifestyle related.  We decided to pull out some chairs and turn our stereo on to a nice reasonable level and enjoy the cool evening air.  Then, things turned bad. There is a center grassy area where people can tent camp.  Our neighbor decided to pull up a truck in

Valley and the Motorhome

We brought our motorhome to Paradise Valley this weekend. It's so much more fun this way. The was Red Solo Cup Party Weekend and food and drink was flowing like crazy. It's a free party and people in the trailer home area help sponsor it. There was a large inflated slide that people were enjoying and a pickup truck was converted to a soapy hot tub! It was absolutely the only place that could have something like this.

Mountain Creek Grove, Cleveland GA

Being GA residents, we were curious about Mountain Creek Grove, AKA, 'The Grove".  This clothing optional 21 and over resort describes itself as "Lifestyle Friendly", meaning that the group know as "Swingers" are welcome here.  In contrary to other resorts, sexual contact is permitted and actually encouraged.  The grounds are a bit rustic, with a single hot tub, a large pool, and a clubhouse and outdoor patio.  There are of course chairs for sunning and other activities.  General nudist rules apply with everyone using towels for sitting.  We were there on a Saturday so there was plenty of people around to play water volleyball.  It's a fun game without a whole lot of rules. Upon arrival, we paid our day fees and were given a golf cart tour by one of the members.  We saw all of the various campsites (being new RVers) and were explained that the only rule at the club was "No Means No" when it comes to sexual conduct. Another nice feature of the club is BYOB aspect.  We were able to bring a small cooler with our own beverages to drink.  No other club we've been to allows this. A trailer was set up with

Paradise Valley

Paradise Valley was the first resort we ever visited. Located in Dawsonville, GA, it sports 3 pools, 2 hot tubs, 2 bars, a restaurant, a clubhouse and some of the nicest condo rooms we've ever been in. Paradise Valley gives couples a free visit so we went on a Saturday morning. There is a lot to do. Water and sand volleyball games break out, the people are friendly and this is a crowd that likes to party. On our first visit, our Female half was a little shy. The nice thing about "the Valley" is that it's clothing optional. This sets a nice tone for people new to resorts like this allowing them to get use to an environment like this. After 10 minutes she was feeling self concience about having clothes on! The restaurant serves dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and poolside lunch on Saturday. Meals are large buffets with tasty food. Prices are $6 for breakfast, $7 for poolside lunch, and $8 for dinner. Friday and Saturday nights have a dance in the main bar with lots of people in all forms of dress attending although it's a clothing optional resort, most
