TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SJSVUJN A Telegraph Travel Feature Camping Grows in Illinois »y font LOFT\JS , telegraph Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, 111. - Th sport of family campittg lh ill nois has grown so fast that state- provided sites and other service can not accommodate It. "Camping in our stats Is wa, ahead of the appropriations we'v got to provide for It," Jfljhes W McMtllen, superintendent/of stat parks, said. "It's growii so fas that we find camp sites in ou state parks are too few and w can't seem to be able to get mon Smokey's A-B-C's Always break matches in two. Be sure you drown all fires out. Crush all smokes dead out in "an ash tray. M* Please! 0 ^ my you can prevent forest fires Published a* a public service hi cooperation with Tha Advertising Council and the Newspaper Advertising Executives Association. fast enough." Money tot Campsites McMillen said the Department of Conservation has budgeted money to the state parks for camp sites, but that for every new site acquired, there seems to be four or five new camping families. "We figure that currently we're ebout 55,000 acres short in our needs in state parks for all purposes," he said, adding "and we. have about 47,000 acres of state parks. Of course, this shortage isn't Just for camping. It's for all recreational purposes. But you can see that a great portion of it is for camping." At the present rate of growth- needs in state parks and the lack of money needed to expand them, McMillen estimates that by 1980, this state will be short 200,000 acres for recreational purposes. Lots of Space "We have lots and lots of space that could be used by campers in state parks," he said, "but we don't have the money to clear and, build fireplaces and provide the picnic tables." Each camping site, he .said, is provided with its own cooking area, a picnic table and is located so as not to be too far away rom a supply of water. It is also the current policy of he superintendent of parks to number each camping site. "I'm against regimentation as much as anyone," he said, "but we've got o control what facilities we have o prevent overcrowding." But that in itself is another iroblem. Many campers do not want numbered campsites in llinois. In fact, on Oct. 5, a group f north and west central Illinois. campers are coming to New Sal em State Park, located northwest of Springfield On the site of the old town of New Salem where young Abraham Lincoln was post master, to hear McMillen ex plain why the state is going to continue numbering such sites. Asked To Speak McMillen was asked to address this group by Mrs. Charles Bliven of Macomb, who wrote and voiced her own and many other campers' objections. Those aren't the only objec tions, McMHlen said, "We get al kinds. One even came from a fellow who wanted to know why he couldn't swim nude in lakes in state parks," he added. "I hope our explanation convinced him but if he had to ask that question, I doubt if any explanation would be sufficient."
