RIVERTON, Iowa (AP) - An entrance and boat ramp into a wildlife management area in southwest Iowa has reopened because of receding floodwaters.

The state Department of Natural Resources said in a news release Friday that much of the parking area at a boat ramp at Riverton Wildlife Management Area is still under a few inches of water, but it’s usable.

Floodwaters that affected Highway J46, west of the town of Riverton, caused the south entrance and boat ramp to close. The north portion of the access road to the main area remains closed because of flooding.

The wildlife management area is heavily used for waterfowl hunting. The season begins Saturday.
