Flooding along the Mississippi is causing problems for campers.
Thursday, Buffalo Shores Campground looked like a ghost town, after officials told campers they would have to leave.
The beachfront is already under water, and the campground could be next.
The Scott County Conservation board said because of rising waters, it will be closed Friday until at least through the 4th of July weekend.
"Once it gets to the point where it's like 18, there's nothing here that's really worth being here for safety, electricity, and flooding, it's just not going to work, there's no place to recreate here at all," said Park Manger Roger Larson.
Although Buffalo Beach will stay open, the park manager said people should not swim during flooding because it can be very dangerous.
