The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has terminated the lease agreement with Rend Lake Resort. Along with terminating the lease, the department intends to seek a new operator for the Rend Lake Resort and Conference Center.  IDNR say they have several concerns about the condition of the building at the facility and last month they notified the resort of rent delinquency of more than $205,000. The resort operator notified IDNR this week that it planned to close the facility, which opened in 1990.
