Flooding Closes Several Popular IDNR Recreational Locations

Jun 26, 2019

The 2019 flood is not only closing some major roadways between Illinois and Missouri, it's also shutting down some popular recreational spots.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says high water has forced the closure of the Kinkaid Lake spillway, most of Horseshoe Lake, the Fort Massac boat ramp and Fort Defiance near Cairo.

Flooding has also closed a portion of the road going from Pyramid State Park to the Boulder Lake boat ramp and campground, the hunter access road near Rend Lake. Power has also been turned off at Hickman's Point Campground.
