You still can't go on the beach at Clinton Lake but you can park at the beach and make your way to a makeshift beach adjacent to the beach.
DNR Conservation Police Sergeant John Williamson told Regional Radio News on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday they have encountered issues with park-goers illegally parking while enjoying the makeshift beach adjacent to the Clinton Beach. He says to make sure people are not parking illegally, they are opening up the Clinton Beach parking lot to ease the congestion.
If there are people who may be on Clinton Beach, authorities are ushering them away. Williamson indicates though, social distancing in other parts of the park is difficult to enforce.
Williamson indicates DNR officials get concerned because boaters launching from Mascoutin can sometimes come around the bend at high rates of speed and that leaves some swimmers exposed. He encourages boaters and swimmers to be aware of each other and be safe in that area of the Lake.
