Cook County - The Little River at Reed Bingham State Park is no longer causing problems with flooding.

The river crested at just below 19 feet late last week. The flooding dislodged some docks but didn't cause any major damage that can't be repaired.

Park rangers had to shut down the beach area, lake, and some nature trails, but have reopened all areas of the park. "We have some soggy nature trails but I went all the way around them yesterday and they're passable. The lake is clear but you still need to watch out for debris if you're going to be bringing a boat out," said Chet Powell.

Park rangers say the river was higher last week than its been in several years.
