The Illinois state park system began in 1908 with what is now Fort Massac State Park becoming the first park in a system encompassing over 60 parks and about the same number of recreational and wildlife areas.

The parks range from small day-use affairs to larger parks that boast everything from fancy lodges and canyons to powerboating on large lakes and miss peregrines home for peculiar children.
