(Joyce) -- The Lyre River campground near Joyce has been shut down.

The state Department of Natural Resources closed the recreational site due to vandalism.

DNR officials say they're concerned about safety after vandals stole recently-installed several picnic tables. The sharp metal edges of the fasteners could be dangerous. Crews had just put in the new sections of picnic tables a week ago.

Officials hope to reopen the campground by early April after the missing wooden tabletops and benches are replaced.
