Illinois Campground Closing Due to High Water
Last week's heavy rains have many rivers swollen and overflowing. That includes the Illinois River.
There has been a flood warning for the Illinois River at Peoria in effect since March 8th.
As of Monday, we have reached a new ALL TIME record for the consecutive number of days of a running flood warning.
It's affecting many areas including the Fon Du Lac Park District in East Peoria. The River is going to go where the river wants to go.
The Illinois River is moving in on the Carl Spindler Marina and campgrounds in East Peoria. So much so the campgrounds are closing.
"It's all mother nature. Nobody has control over it. There's no reason to be upset. It's just something you have to deal with," said Stephen Grube.
Like many of the tenants at Fon Du Lac Park district grounds, Stephen Grube is packing up once again.
