Flooding Closes George Wyth State Park
Posted: 05/21/2013
George Wyth State Park, in Black Hawk County, will be closed at 6 p.m. Tuesday due to flooding from the Cedar River.

Campers who have reservations are being contacted and offered a full refund, said Kevin Szcodronski, chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources State Parks Bureau.

The weather forecast may allow for the park and campground to be reopened on Saturday morning. The campground status updates will be available by calling the George Wyth State Park office number 319-232-5505.

“Campers have option of taking a wait and see approach until later in the week when they can either have a refund for the nights the campground is closed or cancel the entire reservation,” Szcodronski said.
