    It is my understanding that state parks are closed, not Federal land.

    According to IDNR certain federal land is closed. Google "IDNR current dnr closures". For some reason I wasn't allowed to post the link on here.

    Hey all, I've been in the state for one year and I'm hoping to branch out this season and find some new spots. Has anyone had luck along the Iroquois River or just over the board in Willow slough or LaSalle? The spots I found last year are closed being on state land. Last year we went north to some topography, not much of that around here.

    The above question about fed land. Not all fed land is closed. It is misleading on the state page. Mostly historic sites, campgrounds and day use areas are closed and the forest are assessing daily. General access is still permitted, but best to call the local office ahead to insure the area you plan to go is open. As it stands the Fed offices remain open, but are not letting people in the buildings at most locations.

    Don't forget the TP. Not for what you are thinking, though.
    You can use it to bribe the local constabulary in case of apprehension.
