[May 2011 Forsyth Missouri] – While other popular recreational locations are still deep under water, Empire Park is open for business.
After record rainfall fell over much of southern Missouri during the later part of April, much of the area near rivers and streams is still under water. This is especially true of the parks in and around Forsyth Missouri where Shadow Rock and River Run are completely inundated.
While it will take quite some time for the water to recede, Empire Park which is situated above Powersite Dam, is looking awesome and ready for business. This site, maintained by the Empire Electric Coop, has a boat ramp, restrooms and picnic tables and is open to the public.
