We make our own ice cream

Sweet treats are good year ’round. So, take your pick! Choose a waffle cone filled with homemade, artisan ice cream or take home a few pieces of our delicious fudge. We also feature tasty candied nuts, Taffy Town salt water taffy and more. We also sell greeting cards, swimwear, pool toys, Starved Rock souvenirs and personal care items (travel supplies and medical necessities you may have forgotten at home).

Illinois Made

Buy a bottle of our Starved Rock label table wines, made for us by Prairie State Winery and created from all Illinois grapes. Or, create your own mix and match 6-pack of Illinois-brewed craft beer. We also have a selection of locally-made specialty mustards, salsas and jams are available for purchase. For a limited time, we have keepsakes and apparel from White Pines Lodge for sale.
