Where the past is always present.

Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center

Treat yourself to a relaxing vacation and get away to Starved Rock this summer! Book your room at the only hotel located in the middle of Starved Rock State Park. Stay in a rustic hotel room in the Lodge or one of our log cabins in the woods. We have a variety of rooms to choose from. Ask about our pet-friendly cabins, two-room cabins or cabins with a fireplace! Relax and unwind in our indoor pool, hot tub and sauna or stop by The Back Door Lounge to fuel up before a hike. We offer year 'round trolley tours and guided hikes to see our beautiful canyons and seasonal waterfalls. Dine in our own restaurant, the Main Dining Room, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Be sure to try our Sunday Brunch, too! Need to plan a conference or meeting? We were voted the best Lodge in the Midwest for a meeting! We are also a dream wedding destination, especially for our outdoor venue! You won't find a view like this anywhere else. Make your reservation today at the best getaway in Illinois!

If the park reaches maximum capacity (meaning no parking spaces remain), the park may be closed for safety reasons until parking becomes available. People are reminded not to park along park roads or public highways. This may prevent emergency vehicles from getting through. Vehicles parked illegally will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Lodge and wedding guests, as well as people with brunch reservations, will be allowed to enter the park. Lodge parking will be restricted to lodge patrons. We ask that you follow Starved Rock or IDNR's social media channels for updates on park closures over the holiday weekend.

We would love to see you!
