Flooding kept visitors from Glendo.

The high water, which affected about 80 percent of the park’s campsites, cost the state about $250,000, according to estimates from the Wyoming Division of State Parks. It also hurt local businesses, who rely on tourist dollars as a key source of income.

Some merchants reported a drop in sales of 30 to 40 percent, said Mayor Susan Juschka.

“It will be tough winter around here,” she said. “I don’t know how else to say it. People will have to draw on other sources to get through the winter.”
