We know that our guests love to come here to see the natural beauty of the park, but there’s so much more to see and do. First time at Starved Rock? We suggest a guided hike and a historic trolley tour to learn about the area. We offer seasonal trolley tours, year ’round guided hikes, musical tribute shows, special events, educational programs, children’s activities and so much more! Come explore this jewel in the crown of LaSalle County and see why we attract more than two million visitors each year!
