Naturists have been forced for decades to hide their lifestyle from the people around them, which in itself makes folks believe they’re embarrassed, or have something to be embarrassed of. Naturists do not go about without clothes for lascivious motives; it’s part and parcel of the system of beliefs. Many states have laws prohibiting naturists, or nudists from using public beaches, national parks, or other recreational facilities. Most lawmakers understand that that is unjust, but as naturists make up the minority of the vote, they’d effectively be courting political suicide to fight for their rights.
You will find places all over the US that have areas set aside for clothes discretionary use, although there is a continuous fight between the “textile” community and the seeing naturists.

If, by chance, a park ranger should appear and request that you simply place your clothing on, you should achieve this, and stay clothed for the rest of the day.
At the national level, there currently isn’t any law that either permits or prohibits public nudity. As it hasn’t yet been decided whether naturism should be allowed under the constitutional right of freedom of expression, laws allowing or forbidding nudity are composed on a state by state basis, and can be overridden by local authorities.
Some legislation at the municipal, county, and state levels seeking to restrict public nudity is actually an attempt to control the behaviour of patrons of topless bars, XXX porn and similar venues.
