RUSHVILLE — A second state park in northwest Missouri is closed as a precaution against flooding by the rising Missouri River.
The Department of Natural Resources had closed the campground at Lewis and Clark State Park on Wednesday.
On Thursday, the agency closed the 189-acre park altogether until further notice.
Lewis and Clark is located south of St. Joseph on a natural oxbow lake near the Missouri River, which has flooded thousands of acres in northwest Missouri.
Big Lake State Park, about 45 miles north of St. Joseph, has been closed since last week after the Missouri River poured through a breach in a farm levee and left the park under water.
