I can't figure out how to cite sources but here is one:

On a hot summer weekend, the beach may see hundreds of people. Conservative groups in the recent past have occasionally protested near the beach. See this link: http://www.pccmonroe.org/Mazo.htm -- Al™ 02:22, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

Mazo Beach has gotten the reputation of being the nudist beach in the state of Wisconsin. I agree with the PI editor when he/she removed sections that were not encyclopedic and inflammatory. The question I have is; should there be some mention about the controversy about Mazo Beach being used as a nudist beach and can it be done without being inflammatory?

There needs to be something in the article about Mazo Beach being a nude beach, since it's probably the most famous thing about the beach (it's the only reason I know about it, anyway). That said, it definitely shouldn't be the paragraph that was there before, which is extremely one-sided against the nudists. Wikipedia shouldn't be calling anyone perverts and criminals, and it shouldn't look like it's taking a position against Mazo Beach being a nude beach. I think if we can merge what was in this revision with the information about the state natural area (which was copied from the DNR website and needs to be reworded), we can reach a compromise here.

Clothing option beach[edit]

I had to remove "clothing option" from the article. I am concern about the neutral point of view within the article. Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you-RFD (talk) 21:27, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

"Clothing optional" is as neutral as you can get. Removing it is absurd. 32.218.39.221 (talk) 22:21, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
Then provide cited material why it is neutral material. Cited material about the nudists using the beach was removed and should be put back in the article. Thank youRFD (talk) 11:54, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
I agreed with The Catalyst31 that some explanation about Mazo Beach being a nudist beach is needed. To put in clothing option without an explanation is equally absurd. There was materials about Mazo Beach being used as a nudist beach and for several reasons was removed. Cited materials about Mazo Beach being a nudist beach is needed.
