The state about closed the park in the past. Could you imagine all of the sites where homes could be built!

Yes, I sold it to him. I cut a sweet deal on a prime spot for my tent.

That rumor has been circulating for years! But as rich as he is and as strapped as the state is for cash, anythings possible. With the paved roads in the park and the beauty of it, there would be some gorgeous homesites!

I too heard this rumor about a month ago. As unlikely as it is, this wouldn't be the first Illinois State Park in the past year or so to close their gates for good. Lincoln Trail is a huge money pit for the state and I wouldn't be surprised if Jerry has something in the works. As of now there are no facts supporting this rumor so I wont believe it until I see it.

Closing the place and selling it might not be a bad idea.Went a couple times over the summer and the bait shop was never open.Had to hunt someone down to help and was treated like trash for making them actually get up off there arss and do there job.If half what I heard about them is true then the state was stupid for letting them run the place into the ground like they have.

Selling the place to a business that would sell lots would be great for wealthy people that could afford it. But for one man to have the beautifull place to himself wouldnt be great unless it stayed open for us all to enjoy. The park has been a place to see and enjoy nature for alot of people. Hope the state keeps it open even if they need to allow larger boat motors or something to draw more people and money.

Same damn thing happens to me, baitshop is always closed and the food upstairs is over priced slop. I won’t ever waste my time or money there again. Last time I went was for the all you can eat catfish. When we ordered we were told to order something else or wait till they thawed some fish out. The girl said the fish they had out was rotten and stunk to bad to cook. Needless to say we left and will never go back.
