Kankakee River State Park, Illinois

Just read the other day that Kankakee River State Park's campgrounds will be closed this summer due to state budget restraints.

Posted on Reserve America web site-






Attention: Chippewa Campground, Cabin and all loops in Potawatomi – Oak, Hawthorn, Hickory and Osage will be closed until further notice due to an ongoing rehabilitation project.

Equestrian Sties: Are not reservable at this location.

Activity Permits: A Group Use or Activity permit may be required prior to making a reservation for shelters or group camp areas, please Click Here first to determine if a permit is required for your event or activity.

The article I read said " due to budget constraints".

Not surprising. When I came to Chicago before Thanksgiving, half the rest areas along I-57 had recently closed because of the state's budget crisis. Illinois has been fighting bankruptcy for years, so this isn't surprising.

No! IL. does not have a approved state budge, the state has not had a budget for over 8 months. The state elected a new governor last year and kept the same state law makers in power. So King Madigan from Chicago IL. has said he runs the state so nothing will pass until he says so.
