HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) The National Park Service says some boat ramps and campgrounds along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal remain closed by debris from Potomac River flooding early in the week.
Rangers said Friday that nine boat ramps from Spring Gap in Allegany County to Edward's Ferry in Montgomery County are closed.
The Antietam Creek and McCoy's Ferry campgrounds are also closed, along with the Billy Goat Trail near Great Falls.
Park visitors should expect rough conditions along much of the towpath.
Ranger Peggie Gaul says the cost of repairs won't be known until at least next week. But she says the situation is better than in 1996, when two major floods caused $65 million in damage to the national historical park.
