WATERLOO (KWWL) -

High water has again forced the closing of a state park in the Cedar Valley.

Lori Eberhard, park manager at George Wyth State Park, said the park will close at 5 p.m. on Tuesday due to flooding.

Eberhard said all campers have pulled out, as the water is rising quickly.

She said the park will be closed through the weekend, which was expected to be busy because of Sturgis Falls.

"Hopefully we'll be back open Monday if the weather cooperates," she said.
