Fishing” Rod and Reel Loaner Program
The Wildwood Park District is an Illinois Department of
Natural Resources site for the Rod and Reel Loaner Program.
Individuals wishing to use a fishing pole may request one
from the park district during regular office hours. A
refundable deposit of $10.00 will allow you the use of a
pole for the day.
The Illinois “Access to Fishing” fishing pole loaner
program was started in 1997 and remains a unique way for
anglers to try fishing without having to buy equipment. The
IDNR has placed numerous poles in facilities throughout
Illinois. With a number of poles at our facility, small
groups can be accommodated for a fishing day out. For
additional information, please call the park district
office at 847-223-7275.
