Starved Rock State Park

Along the south bank of the Illinois River less than 100 miles from Chicago is Starved Rock State Park whose scenic trails, canyons, and views from bluffs attract over two million visitors a year.

Seen from the Starved Rock bluff is the lodge and restaurant on an opposite bluff where we enjoyed a delightful brunch with family and friends from Peoria and Chicago.

While bird watching is always a popular activity, the numbers of Bald Eagles increases during the winter months since thousands of eagles migrate to this area.
