Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park has been a favorite of state park users for many years. On Dec. 14, 2005, the nearby Taum Sauk Reservoir breached, sending 1.3 billion gallons of water through the major day-use area of the park. Most of the facilities in the area along the East Fork of the Black River were either destroyed or damaged. Cleanup began immediately. It is anticipated that the park will be fully operational for the 2008 season. See the update page for more specific information.
