Concession and Lease Management
The Concessions Program at Illinois State Parks provides a very important part of the park visitor's experience. Concessionaires offer the State Park facilities, services and goods that the State could not otherwise provide. Those goods and services provide diverse recreational opportunities and high-quality concession operations such as restaurants, golf courses, marinas and lodging, while protecting the natural and cultural resources found in Illinois State Parks. See Concession frequently asked questions to learn more.
The purpose of the Concessions Program is to seek involvement and assistance from private and public-sector entities, where appropriate, to provide quality services, programs, and facilities that enhance the convenience, enjoyment, education, and recreational experiences of state park visitors.
