MAQUOKETA, Iowa (AP) - The eastern Iowa state park where police say a man killed three people and himself is set to reopen. 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says in a news release that Maquoketa Caves State Park will reopen for day use Thursday morning. 

The park has been closed since Friday when a gunman shot and killed a Cedar Falls couple and their young daughter inside their tent. 

Police later found 23-year-old Anthony Sherwin, of La Vista, Nebraska, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police say Sherwin killed Tyler and Sarah Schmidt, both age 42, and their 6-year-old daughter, Lula Schmidt. The couple's 9-year-old son, Arlo, wasn't injured. 

Police say they have no motive for the killings.
