Starved Rock State Park

Voted the number one attraction in the state of Illinois, Starved Rock State Park features extraordinary views, amazing waterfalls, thirteen miles of trails, and fishing and boating. This tranquil park also has lodging and dining for its visitors and is home to the largest two-sided fireplace in Illinois.

Located along the south bank of the Illinois River, Starved Rock State Park attracted more than two million visitors last year. In 1966, Starved Rock State Park was named a National Historic Landmark, and its lodge and cabins were listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Even during the chilly months of winter, Starved Rock State Park has something to offer. Illinois is home to one of the greatest populations of wintering bald eagles, and Starved Rock Lodge offers a Bald Eagle Trolley Tour in January and February on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
