Buffalo Shores is now open to the public. The park was temporarily closed due to the Mississippi River flooding, and now that it's open people say they can't wait to hit the waters and go camping.

"Having it back open, you know I missed it you know, it's actually a fun time here. You get a lot of your friends that camp, don't have boats, come down here to the shore, pick them up and go out tube, ski and just have a good time," said Christian Tate, from Bettendorf, IA.

Park rangers are especially excited for the shore to be open. Matt Poirier, park ranger for the Iowa Conservation says the closure made a bad impact on them. When they have to close down the parks, he says they have no choice but to cut down on staff.

"Our whole conservation department revolves around camping and people to have a good time. So to see barricades up it's not a good thing," he said.

Poirier also says they are currently working to clear leftover debris from recent flooding. And as long as the river's current stays low and slow- the park should stay open.
