WATERLOO, Iowa – Heavy rainfall the past several days has caused flooding issues forcing the closure of George Wyth State Park in Black Hawk County.

The park closed on June 22 when water levels made access into the park impossible. The park will likely remain closed through Monday, June 29, depending on any future heavy rainfall. 

The DNR has contacted anyone with reservations affected by this closure and issued refunds.
