Whether you’re a history buff, outdoor enthusiast or just enjoy relaxing in the Great Hall, Starved Rock Lodge offers an abundance of activities for everyone. Due to COVID-19 and Phase 4 restrictions, we have had to modify our guided hikes, boat rides and trolley tours. Musical tribute shows are not available at this time.
