Mazomanie Beach will be closed on weekdays due to public sex and drug use

The Department of Natural Resources in Wisconsin has decided to shut down Mazomanie Beach on weekdays. The nude beach, which sits along the lower Wisconsin River, will be closed on weekdays due to a large amount of 'illicit activities' taking place on the beach. Those activities mostly included public sex on the beach and in the surrounding islands and wooded areas.

Starting this week, the entire property will be closed on those days until September 15, but the beach will be open on weekends for (legal, not sex-related) activities on weekends throughout the year. The officials responsible for the closure say that they're only trying to create a safer, family-friendly environment on the beach.

"It is clear from our records that the majority of illicit activity is taking place on weekdays. Along with the closure we will add extra law enforcement presence," DNR Conservation Warden Nate Kroeplin told WKOW Madison. According to WKOW, some of the complaints received have included "sexual activity, drug use, cruising for sex and other complaints." Looks like the locals will have to find somewhere else to, uh, cruise.
