WILSON, Kan. (KAKE) -

Multiple campsites at a central Kansas lake are closed ahead of Labor Day weekend as more flooding is expected for parts of the state.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers canceled many reservations for the Minooka campground at Wilson Lake and issued refunds for affected sites. The agency's Wilson Lake location has recorded nearly 10 inches of rain this month and more is expected this weekend. 

"We have come up almost 2 feet with another 2-3 feet expected," the Corps said on Facebook. "Many of the campsites that were just repaired and opened on the 23rd are now going under again."

Several boat ramps are also closed. 

The Wilson Lake Association Fireworks show is still scheduled for Saturday evening.
