The Grant River Recreation Area, a popular park camping area south of Potosi, Wis., is closed until further notice due to the rising floodwaters of the Mississippi River, the Dubuque (Iowa) Telegraph Herald reported.

The recreation area will be reopened as soon as the water recedes and the area is clean and safe for visitors, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The area provides camping, picnicking, fishing and boat access to the Upper Mississippi River.
