Hikers should exercise caution and avoid all trails marked closed. (updated July 4, 2014 at 8:00am)
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,
plus, 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 stay in a cozy Lodge room or Cabin right inside the park!
