We’re Easy to Find

Starved Rock Lodge is the only lodging facility in beautiful Starved Rock State Park. We’re centrally located Northern Illinois less than 100 miles from Chicago, Bloomington, the Quad Cities and Rockford.

History at the Heart of the Park

The state of Illinois opened Starved Rock State Park to the public in 1911. In 1933, construction began on Starved Rock Lodge and 16 cabins by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Designed by Joseph F. Booten, the Lodge property was added to the National Register of Historic Places in May of 1985. The centerpiece of the Lodge is the Great Hall with its massive, two-sided limestone block fireplace which is the largest in Illinois. The meticulously preserved exterior of the Lodge is constructed of Joliet limestone, unhewn logs, clapboard and wood shingles. The same unhewn logs make up the construction of the 16 cabins set amongst the woods of the property. Despite changes to the property through modernization, the Lodge and cabins still retain the charm and beauty its architect intended.
