MARION, Kan. (AP) — High waters will keep campers away from much of Marion Reservoir in east central Kansas for several weeks.

Park rangers say about 40 campsites around the lake in Cottonwood Point and Hillsboro cove are temporarily closed due to flooding, and reservations for those locations will be canceled until August 29.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/13lXkwf ) waters washed away parts of one of the main roads in Cottonwood Point and another 45 campsites on one side of the impassable road will be closed, probably until the end of the year. All of the reservations for those campsites are canceled through the end of the year.
