VOTED THE #1 ATTRACTION IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

Starved Rock State 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! Starved Rock State Park is a free state park with no entrance fee.

Please note: The lower parking lots by the Visitor Center are still closed due to flooding.
Parking is available in the overflow lot near the Route 71 entrance.

We would love to see you!
