SPRING VALLEY--The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, closed its Highland Ridge Campground at the Eau Galle Dam and Recreation Site in Spring Valley due to excessive storm damage.

The park received more than 14 inches of heavy snowfall, resulting in excessive tree damage. The Corps is in the process of evaluating the number of damaged trees and will work to restore the site's safety. Reopening this portion of the park to campers is anticipated later in the month.
