Thanks to generous donations from the Friends Of Shabbona Lake State Park and the Illinois Smallmouth Alliance the pot holes in the East boat ramp has been fixed. We have been waiting several years for the State Of Illinois to fully repair the main boat launch. However, the State, as we all know, does not have funds available for projects like this.

So the “Friends” and the “ISA” each donated $1,200 (total $2,400) to fix the east boat ramp, which was really becoming a hazard.

Saying Thanks, does not seem enough, as once again we realize why Shabbona Lake is such a special place.

If you are at a Fishing Show this Winter and see a Smallmouth Alliance Booth, stop by and tell them what you really think.

If you are thinking about joining Friends Of Shabbona Lake State Park, why not now!!!

Go to www.friendsofshabbonalake.com and sign up or make a donation. Friends is a 501c3 tax exempt organization.

​Soon you will also be hearing about 2 more pending “Friends” projects, Entrance Sign Beautification and Spillway Barrier Repair.
