“home to the 63 foot sundial”

The Sun Aura Nudist Resort opened in 1933. it was founded by Alois Knapp, a Chicago lawyer, German Nacktkulturist, editor of Sunshine and Health magazine, and "the father of nudism in America." Eventually it was passed down to Dick and Mary Drost. There it maintained for a few years, but soon things dwindled as Dick was arrested for pedophilia charges. Around that time, the 63 foot leg sundial was created and has stayed put ever since. The Sun Aura Resort is basically a trailer park where the tenants are allowed to walk around in the nude.  Because nudity outdoors looses its appeal in the cold Indiana winter, as the temperature falls so does the resort's occupancy.  If you happen to meet the owner he may give you a tour around the resort grounds in his golf cart where you will see panty trees, dildole gardens, and where the resort's favorite resident "Big Dick George" lives. Because it is an operating resort photos are not encouraged, but if you are courteous, and really want the best roadtrip photo momento ever to take home, have blown up, put in a fancy frame, and placed over your fireplace- you can probably get one. Especially in  the colder months.

No problems finding the resort or getting in. Everyone was extremely friendly and didn’t mind us stopping by to see the sundial!

It was easy to find using the address and GPS. I had read the Roadtrippers info too quickly and didn't realize it was an active community living there. The people were extremely welcoming as I braved going in past the gate (bringing my friend with me). I was polite and shared why I was there. Kindly directed to the leg sundial and the gentleman who helped us find it offered to take a picture. If nudity makes you uncomfortable, you may not want to stop, otherwise it's a fun roadside photo moment.

I had the pleasure of seeing the sundial and what a sight! It is hidden within a nudist colony :) Everyone was very friendly and it was something to check off the list!

Just stopped by today. The (fully clothed) employees were so sweet and happy to lead us to the leg and allowed us to take pictures there. You do have to drive in past the members only sign, but there is parking as soon as you pull in and the leg is just behind the office building.

Who would seriously recommend a nudist colony as a good place to stop on a family road trip. I guess I need to read the entire description on Roadtrippers.

This place is beaten off the path.... but worth a good pull off the road. The leg is so big it’s seen with the naked eye. They really let it all hang out there!

Kids can't go in because it's inside the Sun Aura nudist resort! We made our own picture but we're sad we couldn't see the sundial
