Brown County State Park and Abe Martin Lodge will be closed through Thursday June 20. There is still too much sediment from last weekend’s heavy rainfall coming into the system to allow the production of potable water.
State Parks staff members are contacting guests with reservations through Thursday evening in the campground and at the Abe Martin Lodge with cancellation notices. With additional heavy rainfall predicted, closure beyond Thursday is still a day by day decision.
Staff members are working in partnership with DNR’s Division of Engineering, consultants and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to ensure that when the park reopens there is safe drinking water and water for all needed uses across the park.
