Corps of Engineers’ Blackhawk Park reopens after high water

Published May 17, 2013

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District is reopening its Blackhawk Park after high water flooded access to the park.

Park rangers are opening approximately 50 percent of the sites on a walk-in or first-come, first-serve basis. As the water continues to recede, the Corps hopes to open additional sites in time for Memorial Day weekend.

For more information on the park, please call (608) 648-3314.

The nearly 700 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, employees working at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states serve the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response. Through the Corps’ Fiscal Year 2011 $175 million budget, nearly 2,800 non-Corps jobs were added to the regional economy as well as $271 million to the national economy. For more information, see
