Shut down of nude beach during work-week upsets users

DANE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - People who visit Mazo Beach saying shutting down the clothing-optional beach during the week was a drastic reaction.

Last weekend was the first where the weather made things comfortable at the state’s only legal public nude beach.

Users say the decision to shut down the beach west of Madison during the week was made too suddenly.

Under the new rules, the beach is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, from March 1st to September 15th.

Beach goers say it brings business to the area, with people coming there for vacations or long weekends. Some have come for decades.

DNR wardens say the changes were necessary because the illegal activities had multiplied in recent years.
