Art in the Park at Starved Rock Lodge is the largest collection of chainsaw woodcarvings in the Midwest. The centerpiece of the exhibit is the large Native American Indian head in front of the Lodge – entitled Chief Walks with the Wind. This carving is a tribute to honor this great man. Sam Sine (Chief Walks with the Wind) and his family shared Native American stories and cultural programs at the lodge for nearly 50 years. For a time, they also ran an archery range and souvenir stand in the park.
We are very proud of our collection of carvings. They are a great opportunity to walk around the Lodge grounds and are stroller and wheel chair friendly.
