Two groups of campers are stranded at Savanna Portage State Park but are in contact with park staff and have food and supplies, state Homeland Security officials said this morning.

Savanna Portage and Jay Cooke state parks, as well as the campground at Moose Lake State Park, are all closed at least through the weekend because of flooding.
