While Illinois residents have lost the ability to visit most of the state’s historic sites, they can still use two area state parks.
Tim Pryor at Ramsey Lake State Park and Glenn Wegener at Stephen A. Forbes State Park in Kinmundy said that those two state parks are still open.
Those state parks are not among those that have been closed by the state as a result of budget cuts.
Pryor and Wegener said that the cuts have had an impact on staffing, but they have not had resulted in any restrictions on use of the facilities by the public.
