Calcasieu River reopens, Alligator Park remains closed

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu River is now open to recreational boat traffic.

The river was temporarily closed on Jan. 4 due to high river levels caused by heavy rains in Southwest Louisiana.

Water levels on the Calcasieu River have receded enough that recreational boat traffic is allowed to resume, parish officials said.

Alligator Park, located on the Sabine River, remains closed.
