The City of Mattoon is THRILLED to announce we have received an Open Space Land Acquisition Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for approximately ~$600,000 to be used for improvements to the Lake Mattoon Marina and Campgrounds as part of the Marina and Campground Revitalization Project. Improvements to Lake Mattoon include: paving of the marina parking lot, installation of a new fishing pier, installation of three new playgrounds, new basketball facilities, multiple new benches, and erosion control measures (riprap) among other improvements.

Thank you to all of our community partners who supported this project; especially Rotary and Friends of Lake Mattoon. We could not have done this without your assistance!

See you at the Lake this Spring 🌊🚢🎣😎
