UPPER SIOUX AGENCY STATE PARK -- Some time next week, the soft sounds of conversations around campfires will return to the Upper Sioux Agency State Park.

Until then, it's the steady buzz of chainsaws that reverberates through the park's wooded trails and camping areas.

Park workers are clearing away storm-damaged trees and limbs that block trails and roads and lie across some campsites in the 1,280-acre park along the Minnesota River south of Granite Falls.
