Welcome to one of Illinois’ most unique destinations! Staying in the only hotel in the state park is the best way to experience everything Starved Rock has to offer. Book your getaway in one of our traditional log cabins, nestled among tall pines and towering oaks, with trails to canyons right outside your door! Experience a part of the 1930’s and stay in an original, historic Lodge Wing room, with knotty pine paneling from floor to ceiling. Prefer something more contemporary? The rooms in our Hotel Wing were added on in the 1980’s and are a bit larger and more modern. Please note: Saturday night bookings require a two-night stay. Check-in is 4pm and check-out is 11am.
