The swim beach at Chicken Creek remains closed as testing showed levels of E. coli remained too high.

The Corps originally closed the three beaches Monday, while boating ramps and campgrounds remained open to the public.

Park rangers should have Snake Creek and Cookson Bend reopened by Thursday evening.
