Our Story

The “Hills” was opened by the great “Professor” Gottlieb Kogel in 1971, whom lived to the ripe old age of 94. We are keeping his love of social nudity alive and thriving. He was loved by all. Visitors were amazed by the unique magic acts he regularly performed at the Hills. Naturism has often been misunderstood. Social nudity is the freedom to feel comfortable with your naked self in a safe, relaxing setting, all while enjoying the beautiful nature that abounds at Indian Hills. The professor heavily promoted the understanding of nudism until the day he died. 

Hilda Kraemer, a long-time great friend and dedicated employee of the professor, was granted ownership of Indian Hills after the professor’s death. The professor trusted Hilda to keep the park running smoothly and to continue providing a park for nudist to enjoy in Louisiana. Now the only nudist park in the state, nudists come from many surrounding states to partake in the park’s amenities. The members are proud of Hilda, her husband Selves, and their children’s love of the park and the hard work they have put in to making it one of the most enjoyable and friendly nudist parks in the country.
