Explore the natural landscape of Starved Rock State Park

Whether you’re a history buff, outdoor enthusiast or just enjoy relaxing by the fire in the Great Hall, Starved Rock Lodge offers an abundance of activities for everyone. We offer guided hikes throughout the year so whether you’re hiking in the rain, sunshine, falling leaves or snow – you’re sure to see breathtaking views no matter the season. If you prefer something more relaxing, join us on one of our many trolley tours or water cruises. Catch live entertainment every weekend or your favorite musical tribute acts year round.
