Floating and other water recreation was put on hold this weekend near Tahlequah, as the Illinois River crested above 14 feet.

The Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission says normal height at this time of year is a little more than six feet. The closure prompted camp grounds to close, losing critical tourism dollars.

The River Commission hopes the water levels will return to normal this week.
