Illinois Beach State Park South Unit Remains Closed 
Summer Storms Left Extensive Damage and Public Safety Hazards 
ZION, IL – Portions of Adeline Jay Geo-Karis Illinois Beach State Park (IBSP) in Lake County remain closed due to public safety hazards caused by severe summer storms in northeast Illinois. 

The IBSP South Unit remains closed, including the campground, trails and day use areas. 

Individuals with campground reservations can receive a refund through the online campsite reservation system at www.reserveamerica.com.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) is working as quickly as possible on removal of downed trees, limbs and other storm debris and storm-related public safety hazards that resulted from a series of severe storms in June and July. 

Beach access is open through the IBSP North Unit, but parking is limited and some of the North Unit trail system remains closed. 

The Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center is open.
