A state park in Sullivan County will close for July Fourth weekend amid concerns about spreading COVID-19.
Lake Superior State Park in Bethel, which is operated by Sullivan County, will temporarily close for the holiday weekend, starting Thursday evening July 2 and running through the morning of Monday, July 6. The county’s park director says the decision to close the park is to minimize issues with crowds and celebrations. The beach has not yet opened this season. The parking lot, dock area and boat launch will also be closed, with regular patrols to ensure compliance. The small parking, walking and picnic area near Lake Superior’s dam will remain open.
