Apparently many travelers have been driving to Wisconsin for more than the brewery tours and the cheese, and most people didn't even know about the reason why. According to the Clarion Ledger’s Tuesday report, persons who enjoyed visiting a public beach along the Wisconsin River in Dane County – in Mazomanie which is some 25 miles northwest of Madison, Wisconsin – will have to find another place to strut their stuff on weekdays. The area, known for its acceptance of nudity for decades, has been shut down by local authorities during the weekdays due to excessive sexual activity and drug use on the public grounds. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced Tuesday that enough is enough – and the weekday closures are being enacted immediately.
Authorities in Dane County contend that they are giving up in trying to stop the illegal activities that have occurred much too long and too often on the sandbar and surrounding area’s woods on weekdays when the authorities have tried to be more-than-fair in allowing nudists to enjoy the land – reportedly one of America’s most popular beaches which have attracted nudists from all over the country.
It has been reported that the local government has been quite liberal regarding persons disrobing to the point where they were walking around "au naturel." But the concern is that people have turned that liberal acceptance of nudism into an apparent free-for-all quickie in the woods as well as a place where people thought they could use illegal drugs.
For those who are interested, the area is still open on the weekends – but that doesn’t mean one can misbehave.
