Brown County State Park extends day activities

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says that the campgrounds, cabins and Abe Martin Lodge were still closed Wednesday at Brown County State Park. DNR officials add that day use park activities are now extended to Thursday.

The lodge and other amenities have been closed since June 17th after heavy rains stirred up sediment sediment into Ogle Lake. The lake serves as the park’s water supply.

DNR says that if water production capacity and water sampling continue successfully, the campground, cabin and lodge may reopen for Thursday night guests. That determination is expected Thursday morning.
