VOTED THE #1 ATTRACTION IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

Starved Rock Park is a world apart from anything else in Illinois! You will know it the minute you enter the park, as you wind your car through the towering trees.

Amazing waterfalls are active in the spring and after heavy rains. We have 13 miles of trails to explore and the Illinois River offers fishing (ice fishing, too), boating, extraordinary views and great places to relax.

Visit the Lodge and see the largest two-sided fireplace in Illinois! Or for the full Park experience, stay in a cozy Lodge room or Cabin right inside the park!

Special Notice: IDOT announced that there will be lane restrictions on I-80, just west of Illinois 23 to repaint the East 16th Road (Airport Road) bridge over I-80; to facilitate work, one
lane of I-80 will be closed in each direction below the bridge and is expected to
be complete by Independence Day weekend-DELAYS ARE EXPECTED.
Motorists are urged to use caution when approaching and travelling through
the work zone with US Route 6 between Ottawa and Utica suggested as an alternate route.

We would love to see you!
