Well, since it's near the nuke, we'd be assured of having electricity...

In all seriousness though, I think that if we pick an alternative, it should be a private campground, because if we're suggesting another DNR or state camping facility, I think we'd most likely be in the same boat, particularly with one just south of Moraine.

Prairie Pines reviews sound good .Shows a covered group shelter in pix.
Bring back Air Force memories when it was Chanute Air Force Base.

Prairie Pines in Rantoule is operated by the city of Rantoule so no budget issues there.

In the mean time we will keep our fingers crossed.

I talked with Jack just a few minutes ago and for now we'll stay the status quo, but if we get another report of a state park closure, particularly near Moraine View, Rantoul looks to be the alternate.

I called the Rantoul campground and they do have 21 consecutive spots to accommodate us, but obviously, as our date draws closer, we may be somewhat staggered should we need to implement "Plan B". To me it's worth the risk because personally, I would hate to move away from Moraine-- it's such a great park......and the loop makes it just such a great rally spot, that and the lake, boat rental, beach, the woods, the hosts, rangers, the LeRoy BBQ cookoff etc, etc.

Just wanted to check your site number. I don't believe there is a P113. P11 or P13? I'm guessing it is P13.

When Il. gov. Blow hard closed parks and other venues was not be cause of lack of money but he had a snit about some of reps from districts, so closed them. First thing new gov. did was open all up. Rauner is no better or Madigan and Cullerton same boat all politicians that take stance my way or highway, and people pay for there childlisness.

Moraine View Forum Rally June 2016

I'm glad Eric called. I am on the fence with this. One of the two closed parks is close to St. Louis and it's a recreational area. The lack of power isn't an issue with them, but the lack of trash hauling is particularly bad. Since it's in the metro area it draws a lot of fisherman and visitors and it definitely is closed. The local TV news folks did an interview with the folks at the park and those using it yesterday.

So I guess it depends upon the utility providing power to the park and the folks who handle their waste disposal service. So we are going to be on the edge on this and in my thinking if we find another park gets cut off, we may have to take the sure thing of a facility that is run by another entity other than the State of Illinois. This cut off of the public facilities may domino as other utilities and waste providers feel that cutoffs might strengthen their position on getting paid.

I welcome your thoughts as to whether we should ride this as long as we can hoping that the park will not close, or let the next park cutoff be our trigger to relocate. I think if we see a cut off of a facility in the area around Bloomington, we should go ahead and move since the utility and waste management service may also be serving the LeRoy area.

The problem is I don't know if we have exactly 21 reserved or 22. If it is 22, Rantoule only has 21 spots open which pulls it out of consideration (unless someone reserved is thinking of not coming).

Jack

I think we should wait, as this is a particular supplier pulling out, not the political closure of parks that we had some years ago.

I haven't heard a word about threats of power shut offs in this area due to non payment of bills by the state.

If I do, I'll let you know.

Clinton lake is also Il. state park subject to Gov.Rauners and Speaker Madigans ransom desires to not co-op on budget. More in your face, my way or highway, like spoiled brats. Calling children not fair to children, spoiled brats, YES.... Tax payers of Il. once again take it on chin, but tree huggers wanted Rauner so they got there way. This not only prob. that Rauner has fostered for State of Il. to numerous to list.

Okay. If you are going to cancel let us know since we may find someone who will pick up your spot when you cancel.

Jack and Eric...

You guys just make the call if you need to and let us know what the fallout will be. We'll all show up just the same whether it's in Rantoul or LeRoy.

And don't worry about the spaces... as long as we're close. There's always a couple who can't make it last-minute and a couple who can. We'll figure it out and still have a great time. We always do!
