The campground and boating facilities at Placid Lake State Park northeast of Missoula are once again open following a short-term closure caused by flood damage to the county road that serves as the main access to the park.

Lee Bastian, Region 2 parks manager for Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Missoula, says repairs have now been completed to the county road leading to this picturesque park, located 10 miles southwest of Seeley Lake. The popular destination for recreationists was closed for several days last month, including over the Memorial Day weekend, while Missoula County crews worked on refurbishing the washed out road.

Bastian invites recreationists back to the state park and urges anyone with questions concerning its use or facilities available at the site to call FWP's Missoula office at 542-5500.
