Treat yourself to a relaxing vacation and get away to Starved Rock. Starved Rock State Park & the Starved Rock Lodge is the best getaway in Illinois if you enjoy hiking, outdoor adventure, history and architectural landmarks. Within the Lodge, you’ll find historic ambiance in the main dining room where the atmosphere is friendly and casual. Relax and unwind in their indoor pool, hot tub and sauna or stop by The Back Door Lounge to fuel up before a hike or cool off with a locally brewed craft beer. Choose a rustic hotel room in the lodge or from one of their log cabins in the woods. Either way, you’ll wake up refreshed from the natural beauty of the surroundings. Looking for a place to hold your business meeting? Starved Rock Lodge and Conference was voted the best lodge in the Midwest for a meeting.
