State Park Partially Closed Due To High Mississippi River

MERRICK STATE PARK, Wis. (WCCO) — The south portion of Merrick State Park, located north of Winona on the Mississippi River, has been closed as a safety precaution due to the river’s rising water.

The DNR said the north campground at Merrick will stay open and isn’t affected.

The U.S. Corps of Engineers projects the river to remain at its crest for about a week before it recedes.

If no heavy rain falls, park staff hopes to re-open closed areas by mid-July.

If you have any questions, call Park Ranger Chris Lake at 608-687-4936.
