Flooding threatens several campgrounds in the eastern portion of Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.

Campgrounds at Rocky Mountain National Park remain open but managers are warning visitors to stay out of the east side of the park because of fears of flash flooding, the Denver Post reported.

Heavy rains in the park, especially on the east section, have prompted the closure of several roads including Old Fall River Road at the U.S. 34 junction.

Trail Ridge Road remains open.

Also, the park's backcountry office is canceling any overnight camping permits for tonight because of the weather.
