A shot of the construction currently happening at the Easton Trail Bridge. Detours include an all hard surface option as well as taking one where half of it is gravel roads.

Bridge construction on Easton Trail, also known as county road F20L, started in December of 2019.

And Harrison County Engineer Steve Struble hopes the project will be completed around the Fourth of July holiday.

Park users and campers with trailers traveling to the Willow Lake Recreation Area should take Highway 30 north to the stoplights in Logan then west on Highway 127 to Magnolia, north on Laredo Avenue (L23) to Easton Trail and then east to Willow Lake.

The whole detour is on hard surface, however, local traffic can follow a detour through Woodbine with about half it on gravel roads. 

Campgrounds at both Willow Lake and Schaben Park are open, but with restrictions at this time due to COVID-19.

Shower houses, restrooms, latrines, playgrounds, and playscapes are closed. It is recommended that campers be self-contained and park visitors continue to practice social distancing of six feet and groups less than ten people.

Rental cabins are closed until a proclamation from the Iowa Governor is announced.

The Harrison County Conservation Board (HCCB) will update their Facebook page and website on camping and cabins especially with the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. For more information, call the HCCB office at 712-647-2785.
