Starved Rock State Park events
Starved Rock State Park near Utica, Illinois

It's time to start planning some fall and winter trips.  What else can one do to escape our 90 degree weather now?   Well, it's fun to think about it, but too some events you may want to do for the day and maybe some spend a weekend and you can do that right at the park at the Starved Rock Lodge.

Check out this list of events at the park and mark your calendars.  With fall being very popular at the park, you may want to consider making reservations if you plan on an overnight stay.  Too when it comes to family outings, get everyone on the same page.  Pick and choose which event's you all would like to participate in.  Here's the list, but keep in mind there are many other things that go on at Starved Rock State Park and you can also create your own personal visit and schedule at any time.
