HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — A campground has been evacuated and water access is limited due to flooding concerns at the J.E. Roush Lake Fish & Wildlife Area in Huntington County.

Areas impacted include:

  • The Kil-So-Quah campground has been evacuated and closed until further notice.
  • The north boat ramp is currently underwater and inaccessible to water-based recreationists. Visitors should use the south boat ramp as an alternative access point. It is located off Division Road, south of the reservoir.
  • Some roads and gates near the river are closed due to unsafe driving conditions. Visitors are encouraged to avoid the area north of the intersection of 100 S and 300 E.

It is unknown how long water levels will remain an issue.
