Nude beach shut down, Wisconsin authorities announced Tuesday they will shut down one of nation's most popular nude beaches on weekdays after struggling for years to curtail sex and drugs on the sandbar and surrounding woods.
Nudists from around the country
have been traveling to the public beach on the Wisconsin River near
Mazomanie, about 25 miles northwest of Madison, for decades as word
spread that prosecutors in ultra-liberal Dane County wouldn't go after
anyone for showing skin. But visitors haven't stopped at just stripping down. They've been slipping off into the woods for trysts and drugs.
