BURLINGTON – The DNR’s park staff were forced to close down wastewater facilities at Lake Geode State Park after sewer problems over the weekend.
Sections of the sewer line plugged up, and wet weather prevents contractors from reaching or fixing the lines. Park visitors can use portable restrooms and vault latrines, but restrooms, shower facilities and the dump station at the campground are closed.
Until crews can televise the sewer line, determine the extent of damage and make repairs, the campground will operate as a non-modern campground. Non-modern camping fees will apply.
The DNR is contacting campers who have advance reservations through the first week of July to provide options on their camping stays.
Until a contractor determines the cause of the sewer line blockage, the DNR cannot predict when campground facilities will reopen.
