The window of opportunity for camping in Floyd County isn’t closed yet, but it is getting shorter.
Floyd County Conservation Naturalist Heidi Reams says campgrounds are open through the weekend of October 16-17.
Reams adds that the last day the visitors center at the Fossil and Prairie Park Preserve near Rockford will be open is October 31. Until then, the center is open from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, but the park itself will be open year round.
In Chickasaw County, weather depending, water will be shut off to the campgrounds at Airport Lake Park near New Hampton and Split Rock Park near Fredericksburg around October 15. After that, gates will remain open until it snows, but no water or restrooms will be available.
