Visitors are already flocking to Devil's Lake State Park, says acting superintendent Steve Schmelzer.
"We pulled down the barricades and everything this (Thursday) morning and there was people waiting to get in. It's great to see that people are coming back to Devil's Lake.
Schmelzer says most of Wisconsin's busiest state park is open. The boat landings and numerous trails are closed but small boats, kayaks and canoes can still launch. The beach is covered with water but he says swimming is allowed. He advises caution when swimming in case of debris.
The flooding and severe rains have caused a "fair" number of mosquitoes in the park. The park official advises visitors to bring insect repellent.
A section of the south shore road is still underwater so people planning on using the south shore entrance are encouraged to travel on State Highway 113. The north shore road, however, is fine.
