The Illinois State Parks, Great Parks Initiative was spearheaded by Illinois Department of Natural Resources  in 2013. It’s a renewed commitment to invest more dollars into the Illinois State Parks System to make our Illinois State Parks, Great Parks again! The State Parks, Great Parks Initiative is improving Illinois State Parks every day.  From investing in new facilities at campgrounds like fire pits, picnic shelters and bathrooms, to hiring more staff to ensure our State Parks continue to be enjoyed by over 44 million visitors each year, the IDNR is committed to your experience. 

We invite you to pick out your piece of Illinois’ natural beauty and see why Illinois STATE PARKS are truly GREAT PARKS!
