When it comes to traveling with pets, we take the worry out of the equation. At Starved Rock Lodge, we are pleased to offer a select number of cabins to accommodate your furry friend. With an additional fee of $35 per pet, per stay, you can have your best friend tag along while hiking through Starved Rock State Park.

Please call the reservation desk at 1-800-868-7625 to make specific arrangements or to find out more about our pet-friendly lodge accommodations. A limited number of cabins are dog-friendly. Please confirm availability of these accommodations with the reservations staff when you reserve your room. Please note: Saturday night bookings require a two-night stay.
