Correctionville – Due to high water conditions, the swimming beach at Little Sioux Park will remain closed until further notice. The beach was scheduled to open Saturday, May 28th with the season extending through Labor Day. Wet conditions over the past year along with heavy spring rains has resulted in record level lake conditions that have completely inundated the swimming beach area. Additionally, high water levels have rendered the beach restroom septic system unusable and the facility will remain closed until water levels recede.
Wet conditions at Little Sioux Park have also flooded most of the tent camping area along the west side of the lake, and that camping area will remain closed for the season. All other campgrounds and facilities at the park are in good condition and will be open to the public.
