It was transferred from private foundation ownership to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and renamed Wildlife Prairie State Park in autumn of 2001. In May 2013 the park was signed back over to private ownership, to be transferred to a group of community members who called themselves Friends of Wildlife Prairie Park.
