Hunters, anglers may soon find cabins at Illinois’ largest state park
Illinois’ largest and most under-developed state park continues to gather momentum by improving infrastructure thanks to a grass roots effort by a local group.
The “Friends of Pyramid” held their quarterly meeting recently in Pinckneyville and big changes seem to be on the way for the park. “Friends of Pyramid” is a not-for-profit organization that has been created to help the financially strapped DNR identify areas in need of improvement within the park and provide assistance at fulfilling those needs.
One of the biggest needs is lodging, and plans for cabins at the park are underway.
The goal of the IDNR and the “Friends” group is to improve upon the infrastructure of the park thereby attracting more visitors to the park itself.
Thanks to the efforts of the organization, some critical upgrades and improvements have already been made. Other major projects are currently in the planning stage and efforts to secure funding have been successful.
