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: Deer Hunting Season has begun. All trails SOUTH of Route 71, the campground & Matthiessen State Park will be CLOSED November 18 & 19. All trails
NORTH of Route 71 are open.

We would love to see you!
