Several State Recreation Areas Affected by High Water

LINCOLN – Heavy spring rains have led to soggy conditions at three state recreation areas in Nebraska.

Louisville, Two Rivers and Dead Timber state recreation areas, all of which are adjacent to rivers, have all been affected by high water levels. Users should be cautioned that access to area roads, campgrounds, toilets and other facilities could be limited. Water levels can rise and fall quickly, and anyone planning to visit one of these areas – or any state park or recreation area situated on a river – should call the park to check conditions prior to their visit. Park contact information can be found at OutdoorNebraska.org.

It is common for park areas adjacent to lakes and rivers to see some standing water early in the spring and after heavy rains. Sometimes parts of park areas may close until waters recede. Usually, these closures are brief.

Park visitors are urged not to walk or drive through standing water, as hazards hidden by turbid water may be present.
