Osage Campgrounds closed


OSAGE, Iowa – A local park in Mitchell County is closed.

Several inches of rain came down on Osage Spring Park.

No damage was done, but tables had to be moved to higher ground.

Del Gast, Osage Park and Rec Director, says this is not the first time they have had to close its gates.

“In the past I would say that the park out here has got to my waist high or so. We got another 5, 8, 10 feet to go to get to that and that’s as high as I’ve seen it out here anyway,” says Gast.

The park is expected to be closed for several weeks until the water is able to dry out.
