Smith River reopens after emergency closure

Posted: Updated:
White Sulphur Springs -

Smith River State Park is open again after a temporary, emergency closure due to unsafe floating conditions. 

Park officials closed the river April 3 to all floating between Camp Baker and Eden Bridge because of ice jams on the river. 

A notice on the park's website Tuesday indicated the closure has been lifted.

A Butte couple was rescued from the Smith River on April 1 after running into winter conditions and ice during a float trip. A local couple who has a cabin in the area helped them get back to their car in Cascade.
