Record-breaking rains leading to high water levels have prompted Colorado Parks and Wildlife to restrict access in some recreational areas.
Boat ramps, shoreline access points and parking areas are limited at Lake Pueblo State Park. The department isn’t sure when they’ll reopen.
Near Lake George, the South Platte River is running usually high, resulting in the closure of Spinney Mountain State Park’s river access lot. The department is discouraging fishing along many areas of the river.
