No child under the age of 2 is allowed to float the river. Children under the age of 6 must be in a raft. 6 and older may float in a canoe.

A new law has been passed which states that all coolers must have a locking system or they must be held shut with a bungee. This new law will help cut down on the littering that occurs when coolers are tipped over in the water.

Alcohol that is 3.2% is still permitted on the Illinois River. There is still no glass or styrofoam allowed and no coolers over 50 QT. Alcohol is prohibited in a few public accesses, but not along the river.

Fred & Freida's Smokin' Grill, located near the main office, is still serving breakfast, lunch & dinner Friday - Sunday.
