Southeastern Iowa Campgrounds Filled, Despite Possibility of Isaac's Rain
BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — The threat of heavy rains as the remnants of Isaac move through the central U.S. isn't keeping campers away from southeastern Iowa state parks over the Labor Day weekend.
Mick Klemesrud is spokesman for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources that oversees the Iowa's state parks. He says campgrounds in the area "are filled to capacity" for the weekend. That includes campgrounds at Lacey Keosauqua State Park at Keosauqua and Geode State Park near Burlington.
Klemesrud says the storm system may be bringing rain, but it's also driving temperatures down — a welcomed relief for an area that's endured triple-digit heat for much of the summer.
Klemesrud says daytime temperatures in the mid 70s "makes it so you can sit outside and visit."
