Following are reports of campground closures from across the U.S.

CALIFORNIA

Construction has closed four campgrounds in the Plumas National Forest in northern California, the Oroville Mercury-Register reported.

Three areas and their road accesses remain closed for construction in the Feather River District of the Plumas Forest, according to a press release from the Forest Service.

These campgrounds are Little North Fork, Golden Trout Crossing and Rogers Cow Camp. It has not been announced when they will reopen.

The fourth closed campground is Milsap Bar, closed for bridge construction. Also closed is Milsap Bar Road.

The road and camp will open about July 29.

SOUTH DAKOTA

Just a few miles upstream from the Fort Randall Dam in Pickstown, North Point Campground faces its own water worries.

With a little more than a week until the Fourth of July, many people who planned on going to North Point Campground may need to re-think those holiday plans because the site is under water, KDLT-TV, Sioux Falls, reported.

Parks officials say the water started to really come up last week. They say conditions change daily, but there are still a few dry sites. However, until the water goes down, those sites cannot be accessed because all roads within the campground sit under water.

“It’s probably going to take about a month or so for it to get back down to a normal level,” said Jon Corey with South Dakota State Parks.

Officials say they had flooding problems last year, but the water is already at least a foot above what they saw in 2010.

The boat ramp near North Point is still open for boaters.
