SPRINGFIELD -- The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is bearing the brunt of costs to rehab state parks. It's called the "State Parks, Great Parks" initiative and launched this week.

It's doing things like upgrading campgrounds, putting in new fire rings plus improving trails, picnic shelters and bathrooms. It's also improving the state parks website making it easier to find state parks and reserve camp sites.
