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!

IL Route 71 will be closed to through traffic between IL Route 178 and IL Route 23
beginning Monday, November 7, 2016. Route 71 will be open weekends
from 3pm Friday to midnight Sunday during the duration of
the project. Starved Rock State Park and Lodge remain open
during construction with full access from IL Route 178.
The project is expected to last approximately one month.
We would love to see you!
