  • Mazo Beach 2017

    I have not been able to find any updates about the status of Mazo Beach for 2017. The only update on the Badger Naturist website has been about a camping event in July.

    Should we assume that the beach remains closed? Are there any updates from the work being done with/by the Department of Natural Resources?

    You probably won't. My understanding is that the beach remains closed. I would ask the Badger Naturists as to what the status is.

    I am going to the Eastern Naturist Gathering tomorrow -- unfortunately, there don't seem to be any NAC events on the schedule there this year. Last year there was a session on Mazo Beach - and as I said, a Mazo beach advocate gave a bit of a strange answer - after all stated "the businesses in the area will really be hurt badly by the nude beach closing" -- someone asked "how has the business community officially reacted?"

    "Uh, well, umm, they're scared to say anything. Yeah, that's it, they're afraid that the DNR will come after them, too."

    I dunno - if my livelihood depended on nude beach customers, I'd object ......perhaps there's some type of deal going on behind the scenes that can't be discussed...???

      Mazo is in the Lower Wisconsin River long range plan. Review of a long section of the river to write policy to cover the larger area. Will not include nude use. Check Badger Naturists and/or Friends of Mazo Beach. We spent alot of our tourist dollars near there, not any more.
