Lewis and Clark Closes

Now.... The entire park is shut down.

Flooding along the Missouri River has forced the Department of Natural Resources to evacuate and close the nearly 190 acre facility... and at the start of the lucrative summer tourism season.

The Lewis and Clark is just south of St. Joseph and is on a natural oxbow lake near the Missouri River.

This makes the second state park in Northwest Missouri that's been closed- Big Lake State Park in Holt County has been shut down since last week.
