Beautiful Starved Rock
I grew up near Starved Rock State Park and now I work here. I never dreamed I would know my way around here as well as I do now, but I'd like to help people who visit here have a great experience. First of all, we are located at N41.31671, E88.99145. The park is large (2,630 acres). So, if you enter from IL Rt. 178 S, you come in through the Utica (North Utica) side. If you enter from IL Rt. 71 E, you come in the Oglesby side. Right now, we are trying to clarify our GPS address so that you end up at the Lodge. Starved Rock Lodge is the only hotel in the park. I am the Marketing Director here and I am happy to answer any questions travelers might have.
