Corps taking over Carlyle Lake park

Wed, October 19, 2016

CARLYLE LAKE – Due to several years of reduced budgets by the State of Illinois and lack of maintenance, the South Shore State Park facilities have become degraded, resulting in unsafe conditions and minimal useable recreation facilities.  As a result, the Corps of Engineers has terminated the lease and closed the area to allow for work to be completed to make the area safe for public access.  A portion of the area is scheduled to reopen in 2017.

The area formerly leased to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be incorporated into the adjoining Dam East Recreation Area.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will continue to manage the lands adjacent to the area, owned by the State of Illinois.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues to work closely with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources on other initiatives at Carlyle Lake.  The termination of the lease at South Shore State Park in no way impacts the Illinois Department of Natural Resources existing lease for the management of Eldon Hazlet State Park or license for the Carlyle Lake State Fish and Wildlife Management Area.

For more information on Carlyle Lake, contact the Carlyle Lake Project Office at (618) 594-2484 or email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
