DES MOINES, Iowa- High water has forced the closure of several areas at Saylorville Lake.
The Cherry Glen Lower Boat Ramp, the lower parking lot at Lakeview High Water Boat Ramp, Oak Grove Beach Access, NW Jester Park Drive and the Control Tower Road.
Lakeview Main, Lakeview High-water, Sandpiper and Cherry Glen Upper Boat Ramps will remain open.
Parking for both boats and cars may be limited in these areas as Memorial Day holiday approaches.
Boaters should expect some delays, if they try to launch during peak times. Officials with the US Army Corps of Engineers also say boating conditions may be hazardous on Saylorville Lake due to submerged facilities and floating debris.
