  State Park Concessions   

-Types and Locations

Eldon Hazlett

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources invites you to visit one of our 262 areas where you may enjoy the facilities and services provided by the IDNR or by one of approximately 70 concessions that are operated by a concessionaire through an agreement with the IDNR.

This site has been prepared to inform you of the types of contracted concessions that operate within IDNR areas and to provide you with a telephone number where you may call to request additional information about facilities, equipment rentals, and services provided by concessionaires.

You will find that concessions from park to park will differ in the type of equipment or services provided and their hours of operation. For this reason, we suggest you do inquire before visiting a park, if you plan to utilize concession services.

Many concessions operate primarily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Please feel free to call the park telephone number as listed in the Illinois State Park Magazine or on this web page. This will put you in contact with the Park Office located in that particular park and they will be happy to provide you with information about the concession(s) located in that park. To request a free Illinois State Park Magazine, order online at http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/publications

We hope you will spend an enjoyable day, week, or longer when visiting an Illinois State Park or Recreational Area and I trust you will find state park concessionaires to be helpful, friendly and professional as they strive to serve your recreational needs.
