DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Officials say some Iowa state parks affected by recent flooding are open for visitors.

The state Department of Natural Resources says George Wyth State Park will reopen Friday. Backbone State Park’s lower road will open Friday, though the campground was not affected by flooding and is open. Yellow River State Forest’s campgrounds are also open.

The main road through Dolliver State Park is still flooded, and its campground and family cabins remain closed. However, the south lodge and group camp are open. Parts of Lake State Park, Ledges State Park and Wapsipinicon State Park remain closed, though their campgrounds were not affected and are open.
