Worth County Conservation closes Kuennen's Quarry after multiple incidents

{{featured_button_text}}

Worth County Conservation has decided to close Kuennen's Quarry after reports of multiple incidents in less than a month.

Kuennen's Quarry

The entrance at Kuennen's Quarry in Worth County can be seen gated shut Friday morning. County officials have closed the park indefinitely after a string of public safety concerns involving drugs, vandalism and other disturbances.

The decision has been fully supported by the Worth County Sheriff’s Office until a solution can be found.

The park will remain closed until Worth County Conservation can discuss the issue and form a plan to ensure safety. Cabin rentals, however, will still be honored.
