Founded in 1981, Paradise Lakes has evolved into one of the most visited clothing-optional clubs in North America. Differentiating itself from the rustic, remote, nudist campgrounds that were commonplace when Paradise Lakes opened, this Land O'Lakes club with over 4,500 members is one of the largest North American nudist clubs. Each year, Paradise Lakes attracts more than 150,000 guests to bask in the Florida sunshine while enjoying the amenities of a full service, upscale resort.

Situated on 72 acres, just north of Tampa and 30-minute drive from the Tampa International Airport, Paradise Lakes consists of more than 500 residential units, including single-family homes, town homes, condominiums and poolside cabana units. Close to the Gulf Coast beaches and with about an hour's drive to Orlando's major attractions, this Land O'Lakes resort is becoming more of a destination vacation than ever before.

Throughout the year, Paradise Lakes is host to many week long themed parties. A creative guest services staff plans a multitude of unique and fun events for a memorable visit. Three of the more popular annual events include the Memorial Day weekend, Halloween and New Year's Eve parties. Currently, Paradise Lakes is he only naturist resort to host two annual 5K runs. Every September, it draws more than 100 participants to it's annual "Sneaker Streaker" 5K clothing-optional race. In 2007 Paradise added an additional run in April to be added to their annual events, the Cotton Tail 5K.
