Gunnisons Beach is part of the Sandy Hook Gateway National Seashore and is a long, wide, beautiful beach. During the summer months the beach averages 5000 nude/topless friendly people on weekdays and approx 8000 on weekends. We live 50 mins from the beach and therefore do not stay in hotels. However, there are several hotel/motels in the area. The Fairbanks Motel in Sea Bright NJ is the closest (5 mins). It is an older establishment with clean rooms and an excellent Portugese restaurant (Marisol) next door. The other hotels are a 15 min away. The Macintosh is in West Long Branch NJ, The Red Roof Inn and Holiday Inn are in Tinton Falls NJ. The restaurants in the immediate area of the beach are too plentiful to list. In Sandy Hook you have The Seagulls Nest. It is situated on the peninsular with spectacular views and sunsets of the ocean and bay. The food is good but the menu features only beer,well drinks, burgers and sandwiches
Just outside the park along both the ocean and bay there are dozens of fine seafood restaurants that will not disappoint you. All of these places have entertainment daily in the summer and weekends in the fall.

Does anyone have any idea if the Gunnison beach site will come back online? It's been down for a while.

That's where my wife and I set up...we are usually on the side away from the clothed section and slightly behind the shack. We haven't made any definite plans yet but hopefully in the next month or so.

I was there on Friday and didn't see him. So maybe it's a weekend thing or maybe just once in awhile. When I've seen him he was setup between the lifeguard shack and the water, not far from the clothed area. In any case I believe he does what he does just out of the kindness of his heart.

I was there this past weekend. I didn't notice anything different from my experiences last summer, so nothing really to report. Ah yes, one thing. The gentleman who serves up mixed drinks for everyone was there doing his thing near the lifeguard shack. Bless him.

I have a Gunnison Beach story. We've met 2 other couples at orient beach and have been going to dinner and socializing with them for the last 4 or 5 years. Really nice couples we've grown to really like. One couple has a yearly tradition of going to Gunnison for July 4th. and invited us and the other couple to join them. We flew from BC Canada on july 2nd and met up with them for dinner that night, the beach for the next 2 days and then we took a charter into NYC's east river to watch the July 4th fireworks. What a great time with really nice people. It was our first trip to Gunnison and hopefully not our last. Because we spent all our time visiting with our friends we didn't take the opportunity to meet other beach goers but everyone was polite and seemed to be having a good time.

I was at Gunnison a few weeks ago. It was crazy crowded!!

This was the first time I had returned to Gunnison since my first nudist trip; nearly 20 years ago. It was a bit of a pilgrimage for me. What struck me most is that the beach has become much more diverse since my last trip. A lot more African-American, Indian/Pakistani and Hispanic people.

But the crowd! People almost had to walk over me to get to the ocean!

I didn't see any towel-wrapped individuals. A lot of nude people. And windscreens and tents. That was my least favorite thing about my stay at Gunnison. I don't care about them blocking the view; but it does create a separation on the beach - I just don't like the "distance" it creates between people.

I don't have a story; I pretty much just minded my own business, enjoying being nude in the place where I first discovered social nudity. But at one point, two bikini-clad young ladies in flip-flops walked by me, looking to go for a swim. They were undecided as to where to leave their flip-flops; when one of them exclaimed: "Let's just leave them next to the naked guy!" The other girls laughed, a bit embarrassed; but I didn't really care! I told them I'd keep an eye on their flip-flops; I've been the "naked guy" for a long time!

C'mon folks I don't want to have the distinction of being the LAST person to ever post in this Gunnison Beach forum!!

How was your season and what are your thoughts about Gunnison Beach 2016? I wasn't able to go there as much as I wanted, but I did enjoy the positive change that resulted from the ban on enclosed tents. Some veteran beach goers told me that there still exists a rule about windscreens and tents being placed a certain distance behind the high tide line, they just don't enforce it they say. My hope is that some day they again will.

Anyone have any 2016 stories to share, funny or otherwise? I can't report much because of my limited time there, but I was wondering if anyone noticed the individual who traverses the beach wrapped in a towel? Go figure. Possibly just a normal beach goer who gets cold even on the hot days. Or, seriously, maybe he is a plain toweled ranger? I chuckle because this reminds me of the jokes about what's underneath Scotsmens' kilts!

Heard a rumor that alcohol will be banned starting in 2018. Only a rumor and no explanation for why not in 2017 or sooner. If true I'll consider it to be a good thing - I'd gladly give up my one or two beers to make Sandy Hook a safer and more tranquil place. Can you remember the days when people were more reasonable and courteous and the only big parties were held in September as end of the season parties?

DW and I came from BC Canada to visit Gunnison beach this past weekend. We met up with 2 other couples we've met in St Maarten. We spent Sunday and Monday on the beach and then Monday night we took a chartered ferry to the NYC Harbour to watch the fire works. dodged the rain for the fireworks. And had a great time visiting our friends and visiting Gunnison. Very impressed with the beach. It's almost as nice as Wreck Beach in Vancouver. Hope to get back someday.

Schroder Posted - 07/03/2016 : 5:28:50 PM
I was there Friday and Saturday. Small crowd on Friday but that was expected because of the weather. Saturday was the opposite - jammed with people. I'm in no hurry to return on a weekend again. Certainly weekends are a lot of fun if you're part of a group - the larger the better. For those who are not, well sadly it's everyone for themselves. Nothing new.

Yesterday was cloudy but warm. I was kinda amazed that there were only 10 people there; never seen so few on a decent day there in 11 years.

But, of course, one of only two single men there walked waaaaay back where we were near the dunes to ask if we had an "extra water". The dumb SOB ( a pudgy East Indian of maybe 40 ) apparently thought that his BS was going to fly on this obvious ruse, or that we set-up back there so we would attract clueless losers from a quarter-mile away. I told him to keep walking and he slinked-off, the moron, but not toward the water fountains, either... Guess it wasn't hydration that he was after, as though that wasn't clear in the first place.

I try to ignore idiots such as he these days, but it's very very hard.

Our first trip this year. Very late for us but a move and poor weather delayed things. We found Gunnison just as we'd left it, aside from another stretch of Mobi-mat having been added. All the usual crew of gawkers seemed to have survived the winter but remembered to steer clear of us. The water temperature felt ahead of schedule and the sun was shining. Nice to be back.

Hi Schroeder! I haven't posted to this one in awhile but I was just there last Thursday. Nice day, good sized crowd but I thought it wasn't too crowded but my wife thought there was more people than normal. We did agree that there was a younger crowd than we usually see. It was a good day overall!
