"The safety of our visitors is our primary concern," said Jennifer Okerlund, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation Communications Manager. "The rising Boise River has created unsafe conditions on and alongside the park's main entrance road, forcing us to prevent access."

The park is currently closed and will remain closed until further notice.

Gates into the park are closed and the park will remain inaccessible until further notice.
