Wilson Island Recreation Area to Reopen

By Associated Press

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A state recreation area near Council Bluffs is scheduled to reopen soon.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the Wilson Island State Recreation Area will open its gates Monday. Workers are currently adding fire rings and picnic tables.

The park was originally scheduled to reopen more than a month ago. It was delayed by storms and flooding in June that caused damage to the area.

The park has been under cleanup and restoration for several years. Its campground has been closed since it was flooded in 2011.
