Flooding closes eastern Iowa park for Memorial Day

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Flooding along the Mississippi River has closed a popular Dubuque park and campground for the Memorial Day weekend.

Waterloo television station KWWL reports that city officials have decided to keep Miller-Riverview Park and Campground closed.

On Tuesday, frequent camper Dick Lang came to survey the damage and see if the park had re-opened. He and his family have a long history of spending most summer weekends camping at the park.

Miller-Riverview's campground is so popular, the city holds a lottery system for reservations for both Memorial Day weekend and the Fourth of July holiday. This spring, however, those people lucky enough to snag a camping spot for the Memorial Day weekend will now be getting nothing but a refund.
