Flooding-Damaged Minn. Park Reopens Monday
A northeastern Minnesota park closed for four months due to flooding damage is reopening.
The Duluth News Tribune reports the Jay Cooke State Park will reopen Monday, after flooding washed away roads, trails and bridges.
The park reopens its office, interpretive center, campground and camper cabins to the public. Campsites and cabins will be available first-come, first-served through the end of the month. On Nov. 1, the state will begin accepting lodging reservations.
Park visitors will be restricted to driving into the park from the west, and only as far as park headquarters and the campground.
It will be next year or 2014 before Minnesota Highway 210 reopens to the public for its entire length through the park.
