Storytelling at Fox Ridge

Autumn at Starved Rock Lodge means a crackling campfire and storytelling on Saturday nights at Fox Ridge (located directly across from the main steps of Starved Rock Lodge).  Meet under the pines at 7:00 p.m.  for this family-friendly activity in the great outdoors!  Storytelling continues every Saturday night through October 25 (please note: some of these stories are scary and inappropriate for children. The 9 pm storytelling session is for adults only).
