With their biggest celebration weekend ahead, Rock Creek Marina and Campground, Clinton County, Iowa recreational facility, closed its gate on Monday after water began spilling into campgrounds and submerged the grounds’ only entry point.

As of Tuesday the river was observed at approximately 19 feet, 2 feet above flood stage and rising quickly. By Thursday, the National Weather Service expects the river will crest at nearly 21 feet.

A big reason why that water is rising so rapidly is because of heavy and consistent rain in northern Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota, according to NWS meteorologist Dave Cousins.

Cousins added that Dubuque had 12.57 inches of rain in June, about 8 inches above normal, all of which is adding to the flooding troubles faced in Camanche and the surrounding areas.
