Two more things . . .

What park were you at again? Ohio doesn't have a "Bear Creek State Park."
Was it maybe Beaver Creek? Or Barkcamp?

Also, these sorts of things seem to happen only at the smaller parks, where, I guess,
the park personnel doesn't get the word from on high. The authorities at the
"big three", Caesar Creek, Alum Creek, and Cleveland Lakeside, see thongs
often enough that they don't even think of harassing us.

Maxlati,

thanks for the 411.  To answer your question, I was not exposing my private parts and it was Barkcamp State Park.  I was very low key in my behavior and didnot want to be busted by the park ranger that day.   Knowledge  of the law is the best tool to help thongers stand up for their rights.

Saw three men in thongs and two topfree women at Caesar's Creek on Saturday April 16th at the north end near the boats around noon.  The season has begun.......

Iwant to check out Caesar Creek Beach. What part of Caesar Beach do you layout wearing a thong?  I will layout on the beach part in my thong.  Once I have my thong on I will do every thing in my thong , Swim, get softdrink and so forth. 

I get the impression from one of the comments that it is the north end of the beach.

Thanks for the info, bob

Yes, the northern part of beach but not all the way north to the boating area.  The boating area is at the very far north end of beach.  Avoid boating area since families in boats may suddenly show up, or gawkers in boats with zoom cameras.  Try the mid- northern part of beach, about 50 to 100 yards south of boating area.   Get there early (before noon).  Once a group of thongers is there (north beach), arriving families will avoid the area, since there is plenty of room for everyone on the quarter mile long beach.  Also, topless/thong women will tend to locate where they see the thonger men.  If nobody in thongs gets there until later in the day, there will already be families with kids everywhere and all bets are off.

I spent the day at Alum Creek. From 2:00 until 7:00. It was a very sunny day and was still 83 degrees at departure. I was the only one wearing a thong. I shared the far right end of the beach with one hundred or so seagulls. All of them were nude. No one in the high grass or anywhere else I could see. Several people were further up near the food stand. A group of girls walked by and I heard a "WAHOO", then one of them said, "I can't wait till my mom lets me wear one of those". Cool! Late in the day a couple stopped and asked where I bought my suit, oh, is that a thong? "Yes, a Dore", I told them, and we had a nice conversation about wearing thongs, and where to buy them, even though they both had never owned one. Look for a new thong couple at Alum Creek soon. I hope to return soon, but my schedule gets really busy.

Man it was hot yesterday! I mean heat hot. I was "Up the Creek" for a couple of hours. Their were a lot of people but only a few men in thongs. I guess Ohio women have completely given up the thong lifestyle. One guy that was laying naked on his stomach. Hat's Off! to him but I don't think it will help the cause if he gets caught.

I layed out away from the crowds, my weight is up and I am feeling self-conscience. I was wearing a banded thong from Skinz, neon flame print. Skinz doesn't make the sexiest stuff on the market but the quality is high and if you actually want to swim or be otherwise active in your thong I would definately recommend them.

Regarding thonging near Toledo, probably a state park is the safest place to go. State law
applies there, so you don't have to worry about any sort of local law. I'm not particularly
familiar with that area, but it looks like the two state parks east of Toledo might be a possibility: Maumee Bay State Park and Crane Creek State Park. Crane Creek has a 3200 foot beach along Lake Erie, so I bet it has sufficient space to spread out, and you ought to be able to find a spot where you won't be bothered. From the maps I've seen of Maumee Bay, the beach doesn't look all that good--it's rather small and all of it is near the road.

By the way, topless is also legal in Ohio.

Kellyj-
My wife and really I enjoy sunning at Crane creek when we are near the lake. We are usually alone in wearing small swimwear, only see some young girls in very skimpy Bikinis, most others well covered, often not much company on the beach at all other than on holidays. Wife wears her little String Bikini and I wear male Gstrings and even occasionally my micro "baggie" suit with no hassle,
Don't go on a cloudy day, the mosquitos are bad other than in good sunshine.

I was at both Crane Creek and Maumee Bay back in early May. Maxtlatl, Crane Creek is the one your thinking of  that's really crappy, Maumee is actually pretty nice Crane creek's beach is full if sticks and hicks. While tanning at Maumee, I was lying face down and overheard a couple of 10yr old little girls whisper "pervert", "sicko" as they walked by, and I wasn't even wearing a thong! Just a regular bikini. That's the funny part, imagine if I was. They didn't think I heard them but I sure did. I just shook my head and laughed. BTW there was just myself, and 2 other fellas wearing bikinis but no thongs.

Hello all. I've been out a few times this year to one of the local parks, Mosquito Lake. Never any other thongers there, but I usually don't have any problems. It's a very short beach, so I generally keep to whichever end is less crowded. Weather permitting, I'm going to the other park, Lake Milton. I'll let you know how it goes, in the event you're ever in this neck of the woods, and looking for someplace to thong.

I am new to thonging and have been reading up on the posts on Ohio, specifically Ceasars Creek. Does anyone have any current info: best area at the beach, weekdays vs. weekends etc. Do to the hours I work and the proximity to my house I would have opportunities to visit during the week. My concerns are the attitudes of the rangers, families etc. Also interested in any info on Alum Creek and other prime spots in Ohio/Indiana. Thanks......

To Sticksthong. Can't speak much about Ceaser's Creek, but make it to Alum Creek quite a bit, more once I move there this summer. Tends to be fairly quiet during the week. Even then most thongers tend to lay out at the far right of the beach, closest to the dam. Sidewalk all the way until it ends, lawn area that occ. gets mowed, sandy-grainy area, warm shallow water. When I go I wear a g-string, have been seen by rangers and never a problem. Any other questions, feel free to ask. Where will you be coming from?

Just kidding around with ya, Michael.    Janet and I were at the local beach already.    Pretty slim pickings though, a pretty quiet day at the beach but at least we enjoyed the sun and of course we were both wearing our thongs.    Yesterday, I stained the pool deck in the backyard, and again was wearing my thong.    But my red sparkly thong from Skinz is no long red nor sparkly.    I guess I'll have to buy a bunch of them because it's definitely me.    Not that I'm red and sparkly but we both think I look good in it.    lol

Well, if he was lying on his stomach, he may not have been naked. He may have been wearing a pouch.

Regardless, Ohio law has changed. Even before the change, public indecency required that the "private parts" be exposed "under circumstances likely to be viewed by and affront others." If those others are far enough away, it's hard to see how they are legitimately affronted. But the change that happened late last year was that the exposure now has to be "viewed by and affront others in the person's physical proximity" to be illegal. Certainly the remote area near the dam gives one plenty of warning before anybody else is within your "physical proximity".

By the way, I've been too busy to make it to Alum Creek much this year, but it looks like tomorrow (Friday) is going to work out for me.

I did make it to Alum Creek day, as I suggested. I got there at about 10:45, but left at around 1:30. There were a lot of flies biting that made it somewhat less than enjoyable.

I mainly just wore my G-String, pretty close to the end of the beach on the sand. There were a fair number of boats in the area and I didn't want to get in the middle of that. (On most Ohio State Park beaches, the swimming beach is in the middle, and boating beaches extend out the ends.)

When I left, there were two other men in thongs or G-strings, in the grassy area, and one more guy arrived as I left.

At about 11:45, the lifeguard went on duty, and used his ATV to buzz down to the ends of both beaches and he just zoomed by.

I made it to Alum Creek again today. Unfortunately, the flies were biting rather fiercely. When I got there, there was one other guy, who also complained about the flies. I was fly-free for about 10 minutes, then it seems that they all found me.

I stayed for only about an hour. Just as I was leaving hdmichael2003 showed up, and we exchanged a few words. He mentioned that he had citronella, so we'll see how that did with the flies.

While I was there, the Channel 10 news helicopter flew over and then hovered over the beach for quite a while. I imagine they were doing a story on the heat and hitting the beach, though the beach was actually quite uncrowded.

Hey guys,

I was at AC last Sunday and the knats were a pain in my ass. Tnen there was a good 25 minutes of a huge cloud overhead when 1 guy got up and took off. He commented that there wasnt any sun and I said it was pissing me off too.

I stuck it out and the sun came out. I took off about 5pm. I was there in a blue Barely There thong on a blue towel.

I am wondering something though.
I have 3 fishnet see thru thongs. I am wondering if any of the other thongers would mind it if I were to wear one, as long as I stay put in my chair, or stay on my stomach?

I tend to not want to lay too close to anyone else (no less than 25 feet or more.

I would guess that if your suit won't pass the ranger test, and you are not comfortable getting up, walking around and acting normal in it then it's probably not the right suit for the venue.

Maxtlatl,and michael,

I'm trying to figure out who's who that I have seen at AC the last 2 times I've been there.
I've met Michael, but I'm trying to figure out of I've seen Maxtlatl there yet, or backstrap357??

I did see a husband and wife there yesterday (Sunday 7-30) in a green boat, yelow umbrella and she had on a yellow 2 piece slingshot and he had on a red pouch. I didnt want to bother then when I headed to the water so I slipped thru the weeds to their right and got in the water between a couple of small trees. Hdmichael told me I wouldnt have borthered them at all, a very nice couple. I guess I also have a couple of extra pounds this year and am alittle self concious about it. I usually sit back in the grass (last Sunday in the very corner in a stripped chair) because I sometimes sit nude facing the weeds or at an angle so no one can really tell.

I suppose I'm far more subdude and shy in person than I am online.

I'll be out there tomorrow until after I have 11 heat strokes this time. I'm planning on taking a cooler with plenty of water also.

If it was a rather small fishing boat, that was probably Jeff and Barb. I have known them for practically forever. Word has it that they will be there again tomorrow, Tuesday. I also will be there, if I can get away.

You can tell who I am since I usually have a green cooler with me.

I'll probably make it out there shortly after rush hour traffic and stay atleast until 3 or so. If I make it that early, I try to snag the back corner of the grass incase I decide to lose the thong and go nude.

I went to back Barkcamp State Park on Aug. 1st 2006,  near St. Clairsville OH, off  I- 70.  I was playing hookey from work and passing thru the area.  I went to the Park office first to confirm that thongs are legal.  The lady at the office said yes.  Which I knew was the answer but I did not want to be hassled by the man.  I had a negative experience 2 years ago at this park when the ranger threaten to fine me for public nudity for wearing a thong.  (Old story ,see past postings).  So I set up at the far end of the beach.  I was the only one there until a mother and her young kids showed up about 30 minutes later.  Soon others began to filter on to the beach.  I went about my business and enjoyed my sunbathing.  Tanning both my front and backside.  I had on my lime green Male Power thong that shows off my 6 ft. 5 in. slender frame, so since the beach was sparsley populated I could not be missed.  I went into the water several times and walked on the beach.  Since I was solo, I avoided contact with any one else except to say hello and smile to the other beach goers.  I got a few looks but no outward complaints.  Later in the day a Park Ranger showed up and I could see that some of people on the beach were looking in my direction.  But nothing happen, the ranger drove off.  He even came back later with a local TV News crew for a story about the extreme heat and water safety.  Overall, I was able to enjoy myself without any hassle.

I guess we all know experiences in Ohio can vary tremendously.

A few weeks ago I was thonging at one of my favorite State Parks.  I had stuck to myself most of the day, not even walking the beach, and hadn't had any problem.  While in the water, I saw a ranger drive by without stopping, but didn't think anything of it.  He circled around once, and somehow, I just got a bad feeling.  Before I could get out of the water, he came back and got out of his truck.  I decided to stay in the water until he was gone.  Well, he walked around forever, and talked to several people.  Finally, he motioned for me to come out of the water.  Now I was sure I was busted.  I got out, got dressed, and went over to his truck.  He said that a woman had complained that there was a guy on the beach in a g-string propositioning every woman in sight!  I assured him that I had not done anything of the sort.  He pointed out that I was the only one in a thong, so she must have been referring to me.  I reiterated that I had kept to myself the entire time I was there, and had not even walked the beach in the thong or spoken to anyone.  He asked me for ID and ran a check on my Drivers License.  He then said that he wouldn't press any charges because the woman had left!  This really spooked me.  Did he mean that if she had still been there he would have believed her over me?  I could have presumably gotten the others on the beach to verify my story had it been necessary, but I was still surprised.  Several times he assurred me that my thong was no problem, just the complaint the woman had voiced.

So what in the world had actually happened?  I have no idea, and no idea who the woman might have been as many people had come and gone by this time.  Had she complained about my attire and been told thongs were ok, and then called back and made up a story solely to get me into trouble?  What kind of a sick mind would do such a thing?

After he had assurred me that my suit was ok, I obviously should have simply gone back to the beach and enjoyed the rest of the day.  But I was spooked significantly that all I could think of was how to get out of there as quickly as possible.  So I simply gathered up my stuff and left (it was 5 PM, but I had originally planned on staying until 6 or 6:30).

After thinking about the incident for several days, I decided that this was (hopefully) a once in a lifetime occurrence, and that this should not stop my enjoyment of thonging.  I have been back to the same beach since then, and had no problems at all.  But it still annoys me the extent some people will go to impose their views of the world on everybody else.

Which park was it?

Here is where going to the larger parks can matter. At Alum Creek
there are usually enough others that we can provide support, and
even provide witnesses if it should come to that.

A couple of weeks ago, somebody called in to the rangers that
there were naked men at our area of the beach (this often happens,
particularly when the religious nuts go into action--they will
sometimes sit out in boats offshore and call in their reports).
So, a ranger tried to sneak in, parking her cars way back
in the lot, and walking toward the beach.

I happened to spot her at a distance, so one of us just walked
around to everybody to make sure they were covered. At that
point, all ranger did was to let us know that somebody had
called (and this somebody had to be so far away that they thought
a G-string was naked) and to "keep our boys covered."

A know that a couple of years ago a G-string wearer at Caesar
Creek was arrested and convicted of indecent exposure because
one of the religious nuts there claimed he walked past them
naked. I know the guy and he really was not the sort.
But he couldn't get anybody else to be a witness, and the
judge chose to believe the "religious" person (talk about
bearing false witness). So, it can happen.

Anyways, again, one of the hazards of the smaller beaches is
that there is just no sort of protection against that sort
of thing.

Hey Bob, you been to AC recently?

I spent most of last Tuesday there, then again last Sunday until the clouds set in about 2 or 3pm. I got there Sunday at about 8am and I swear I was THE only thonger until almost 1pm!!!
There was a couple that showed up, multi colored umbrella (perhaps you know who I'm refering to), she went thongin and topless (dicreetly) and he was in a string pouch. They made a bright move and headed back to the back of the grass because it got REALLY crowded in the water with boats and girls were playing on 2 huge tubes and screaming constantly!! I moved back not minutes after they did. I bet it was 200% quieter back in the grass. And since it was fairly scarce (people-wise) I went nude for a while unless someone wondered down to our area. I didnt see any patrols drive the sidewalk and only 1 pass of the parks truck first thing when I got there.

I'm shooting for this Friday afternoon and again thru the weekend as time allows.

Maxlatl:

Strouds Run near Athens.  Its fairly convenient for me.

I'm sure you are right about the larger Parks; I will keep this in mind.  Every previous time there had been any issue with my thong (this has happened on quite a few occasions, but not so many as to be a big problem, at least in my mind), the complainer has at least had the decency to approach me directly about it.  Now many times the complainers have been rude and impolite, occasionally swearing at me or something of the like, but I have learned to deal with that and brush it off as a hazard or the trade.  But I sure was unprepared for someone to make up a story in an attempt to get me arrested.

I guess the moral of the story is that anything can happen and you must be prepared for the worst.

About Kelly's Island,

The island itself is pretty small, and the state park is tiny!  It is a sleepy island with little to do except camp, fish, swim, bicycle, and relax at the winery.  Most people that enjoy this type of vacation are low key, and probably retired, or with their families.  To make things more interesting, there is a Four-H camp three quarters of a mile down the beach from the park's swimming area.  This may seem as though it would spell doom to teeny swimsuits and bare breasts, but I wouldnt be suprised to learn that the rangers have no problem with thongs and the like.  During the summer, the island is packed, and it may be difficult to avoid notice in a thong, but the anonimity that comes with being in a crowd may also work to your advantage.  During the school seasons, the island is pretty empty, but BEWARE! the great lakes are mind numbingly cold  (well, I guess the rest of your body would be numb too) in the spring (we dont get warm equatorial tides, the whole thing gets frozen). 

As for the fall, im going to try here in a week or two.  Wish me luck, warm water, and good thonging.

I went to East Harbor State Park on Lake Erie this summer and was happy to see a few other thongers there like me and even two topfree females as well.   I visited there three times - the beach is very long and is not populated toward the end of the beach and is a very nice place to thong or to layout au naturale also.  I plan on going back next summer.

Sorry for the delayed response to Ohio rangers spooking thongers.  Yes it does happen, and it almost certainly can't be that the rangers don't know better.  Ohio park rangers who work at parks with beaches/lakes are given special training on how to handle thongers, topfree women, and complaints they might generate.  It is possible the rangers in question have been transfered from a non-beach park and have not been given the training. 

Something similar happened about 5 years ago.  We went to an obscure part in South-East Ohio on a warm October day that was called something like Lake White or White Lake.  In any event, we were not planning on going there, but just were driving through the area checking out the leaves and stopping at local antique stores when we saw a sign for the beach and decided to stop.  

The beach was tiny -- maybe only 300 feet long and maybe 30 feet wide and was wedged between a parking lot and the water.  Randy and I layed out in our thongs for about 45 minutes.  Several times a ranger car drove slowly through the parking lot, and the (male) ranger waved, but each time he passed, Randy was laying on his back although he saw my buns several times and didn't seem to mind seeing them at all.  Finally on his fourth drive-by, Randy was laying on his stomach, and the ranger stopped and got out of the car.  He told Randy that thongs were illegal on men, that he could be arrested, etc.  We knew this was a bunch of hog-wash but at the same time, we were about ready to leave any way and rather than stir up the confrontation, we quietly put our pants on and drove off.  The ranger followed us all the way to the county line, I assume to make sure we left the area and about half way there was joined by a local sheriff deputy. 

When I got home, I wrote the head of the Ohio State Parks (Chief Ranger is what I think they call him), and explained the events, mentioned the officer's name and gave specific times, and ask the question "when were thong swimsuits outlawed".  A few days later I got a response that they had trouble with this ranger before and that they had confronted him with the story and he admitted it had occured.  They made him take a "refresher" course on dealing with thonger issues, and soon was re-assigned to a non-lake park.  The Chief Ranger was very appologetic and told us to please report any other incidents we might have.  He also sent us a note when the re-assignment occured and with the new park's name.

So I guess if you are not too gun shy, you could take this approach -- be sure to collect names and times and that your facts are correct and any statements are quoted correctly, and approach at the state level with the "when was this made illegal" question.  At least 5 years ago, they took it very seriously.

I went to Barkcamp State Park off of I 1-70 near St, Clariesville, OH this past Wenesday,  I was on the road in the morning making a sales call in the area.  At least that the story I told my sales manager.  Anyway, It was a sunny 80 degree day with bright sunshine and no clouds in the sky.  I could not resist the urge to get some sun.  I had a bad case of spring fever and I had to get feed my thong addiction.   I carry a backpack with a towel, shorts and thong for occasions just like this . So I decided to skip the rest of the day and hit the beach at Barkcamp.  When I arrived I noticed that the beach was deserted except for about 4 people.  This is the first time at this spot that I wasnot the only one wearing a thong, much to my surprise.  There were two pretty 20 something women on the sand.  One was in regular bikini bottom and top, her friend was in black g sting bottom with a black string tankini top.  I walked by them and they smiled as we exchanged hello's, both girls commented on my lime green thong.  It's good to know that there are some progressive people around.  Needlesss to say I enjoyed the rest of the afternoon there, strolling the beach and getting some sun on my buns without any hassles or negative comments.

Hello!

We frequent Mentor Headlands Beach a few times each year. We heard that one of the far ends of the beach are topless and thong free, and have noticed a few thongers over the past two summers (2005 and 2006), but no topless female sunbathers.

We usually go to the far eastern end of the beach, in front of the Dunes Preserve, close to the lighthouse. A bit secluded, and offers some privacy.

Let us know if you're visiting Headlands!

 I ran into a similar problem at a Michigan state Park years ago.  After you comply ask what law or rule the officer's enforcing.  Also ask for the phone number of the park manager.  In my case the officer did not give me an ordinance number. The next day I called the park manager and told them one of their rangers doesn't know the law. The park manager agreed and told me to come back anytime I wanted.  I'd later found out the ranger in question got reprimanded.  I also found out that all attending Rangers at the park were told to leave people in thongs alone.  I've gone back to the same park for many years now without any problems.  You have to stand up for your rights.  I have posted my experiences on this board.

A visit to Mentor Headlands the other day was a very nice one: We tanned for a couple hours in thongs, and noticed others in thongs. One other female did show up, and did go topless, though, she was quite nervous about it.

Yes, Mentor Headlands is thong friendly, and topless friendly! The park staff and patrolling rangers said not a word to anyone... though, they did hang around the ladies a bit longer than normal. ;-)

Brian,
Can you tell us where Mentor Highlands is, and where to get to your beach? Sounds like a great place!

We've also thonged and wife even went topless at East Harbor State Park up at Lake Erie.  It's a fairly long beach and you can find a secluded place - always have beach strollers though, but they didnt' seem to mind us at all
