Fishing

Wildlife Prairie Park has 5 lakes that allow fishing.  Fishing is open to any guest at the park and an Illinois Fishing license can be obtained online through the IDNR website.

In addition to regular IDNR rules and regulations, we ask that guests partaking in fishing also follow Wildlife Prairie Park rules and regulations.
