REXBURG — Warm Slough Access Area in Madison County has been closed, Idaho Fish and Game announced in a news release Friday afternoon.

The area is a popular boating, kayaking and floating location. Adventurers hoping to camp and recreated there over Memorial Day weekend may not be able to do so; Fish and Game has closed it “until further notice due to flooding.”

“Illegal off-roading during these flooded conditions has caused considerable resource damage and created a public safety concern,” said the release.

Pictures sent by the department show deep ruts and muddy tire tracks throughout the area, as well as some of the flooding.

Fish and Game is asking that anyone with information about the damage to the area contact the Upper Snake Regional Office at (208) 525-7290.
