Clean-up efforts will continue throughout the week. Campgrounds at Morgan Creek and Squaw Creek Parks will be closed at least through August 18. Impacted areas will reopen once power is restored, debris removed, and the area is determined to be safe for park users. Patrons who have reserved a lodge, shelter, group camp, or a Squaw Creek Park A-Loop campsite during this closure are being contacted for suitable options.

Pinicon Ridge Park near Central City remains open.

The public is advised to keep safety in mind when visiting any Linn County Conservation park, natural area, or trail as tree and property damage is widespread.
