Is there any chance the members or regulars at Woodlot can band together and create an association to acquire the property and continue the tradition? There are number of older resorts in New England that have gone this route when the founder passed. Some that come to mind are Sandy Terraces, Dyer Woods and I believe Solair are now Association owned and operated. The best part is the program survives any individuals interest or life. I hope something can be worked out as it is a shame to see the nudist lifestyle locations slip away.
There's definitely a market for Woodlot. I don't know of any other outdoor nudist venues in Illinois near Chicago. But it has to be professionally managed. In the early 90s I called Woodlot and was discouraged from coming (likely because I was a single male about 30 years old) and was told it probably wouldn't be open again for the season. So I never went - despite having disposable income and having enjoyed international nudist venues. I thought it was strange at the time, but have learned since then that it's a common pattern for nudist camps to exclude themselves into oblivion.
