Red Lodge Provincial Park remains closed as a flood watch and high water levels at the Little Red Deer River continue to plague the area.

Camping plans have been put on hold recently at Red Lodge Provincial Park as high water levels and a flood watch remains in effect for the Little Red Deer River.

Susan Johnson with Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation says heavy rainfall has caused many of the roads to be covered, which has hindered the cleanup process.
