The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says Blue Mounds State Park near Luverne will reopen Monday after a monthlong shutdown caused by flood damage.
The park in southwestern Minnesota was forced to close June 18.
The campground, interpretive center, climbing area and all trails except the Mound Creek Trail will reopen Monday. The swimming area will remain closed as DNR engineers decide how to address the damaged spillway and dam.
The park received nearly 11 inches of rain during two storms in mid-June. No park visitors were injured. The park's bison herd also weathered the storm and remains in good health.
