Illinois’ new Water Usage Stamp is now available.
Prairie State Outdoors
Non-motorized watercraft, canoes, kayaks and paddle boats in Illinois are no longer required to be titled or registered in Illinois, unless the vessels have a motor or sail.
They are now required to purchase a Water Usage Stamp when the current registration expires.
The cost is $6 per calendar year for the each of the first three vessels, and $3 each for any additional vessels.
All of the new Water Usage Stamps must be purchased at the same time to receive the discount.
Water Usage Stamps are mandatory for all non-powered watercraft.
Stamps became available June 19 over-the-counter from DNR Direct license and permit vendors.
