ABOUT 90 per cent of the Corowa Caravan Park was swamped by floods overnight, forcing its owners to close the site indefinitely.

Owners Sheryl and Don Ayres said they were”sorry” and “devastated” in an online post, which included a video of the damage.

“We did absolutely everything we could and gave it 100 per cent, but it’s beaten us and is still rising,” the post read.

The park had seven pumps running throughout the day on Monday to try and keep the water levels down.

About 60 volunteers rallied to lay 2000 sandbags at the weekend, but the swollen Murray River proved to be too much.

The pumps were turned off overnight due to safety reasons and, by morning, water had crept more than half-way up some of the cabins.

”Cheryl and Don can't thank everyone enough for all the help and all the amazing positive comments on Facebook,” a post read.

“Our annuals (our park family) have a great community spirit.

“We'll come back from this bigger and better.”
