River Access Near Hamburg Closed Due to High Water
Posted: 06/30/2011

RIVERTON, Iowa - The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has closed the Goldenrod Access to the Nishabotna River, which is on the east edge of Hamburg, to all boat traffic except for emergency vessels.  The access to the Nishnabotna River was closed due to high water and unsafe conditions from Goldenrod downstream to the confluence with the Missouri River.

Boaters may use the ramp at the Riverton Wildlife Area, near Riverton, to launch their craft to the Nishnabotna River.  Riverton is about six miles upstream and the river levels are more conducive to boating.
