Storm Damage Closes Hazlet State Park and Coles Creek Campgrounds


Share post:

Carlyle, IL – Significant storm damage has led the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office to request that non-campers avoid Hazlet State Park and Coles Creek campgrounds until further notice.

According to a recent social media post from the Sheriff’s Office, crews are working diligently to clear debris, restore power, and assist campers currently in the parks. The severe weather caused considerable disruption, making it unsafe for additional visitors to travel through the affected areas.

Authorities emphasized the importance of staying away from the campgrounds to ensure the safety of both the public and the emergency response teams. They are urging people to comply with this request to facilitate the efficient and swift restoration of the parks.

While the exact timeline for reopening remains unclear, the Sheriff’s Office will provide updates as the situation progresses. Campers and local residents are advised to stay informed through official channels for the latest information on park conditions and access restrictions.

This appeal comes as the region recovers from the recent storm, highlighting the ongoing efforts of local emergency services to manage the aftermath. Residents are reminded to exercise caution and prioritize safety during this recovery period.
