Lesterville, Mo. – Johnson's Shut-ins State Park in southeastern Missouri has reopened to swimmers for the first time since it was heavily damaged by the collapse of the Taum Sauk Reservoir in December of 2005.

KWMU's Marshall Griffin paid a visit there recently to see how much progress has been made in restoring the park.
