MADISON (AP) — A South Dakota state park that was closed after damage from a May 5 storm has reopened.
Lake Herman State Park reopened Friday, though 15 campsites remained under water. Park Manager John Bame told the media that crews were pumping water and would reopen the sites as soon as they were dry.
Lake Herman rose to record levels after the storm, topping roads in the park. Campers were evacuated May 6 and the park had been closed to vehicle traffic since.
Bame expects all of the flood-damaged facilities to be repaired by Memorial Day weekend.
