The views, food, cleanliness, and tunes ROCKED. The only thing better was the staff. Easy drive from the western suburbs. The trails were clean and well marked. We liked the different endurance levels of trails. Although not handicapped, we walked the handicapped trail. And noticed the handicapped friendly cabin and parking. Great job accommodating every one's ability to enjoy the... More

White Pines is a beautiful place and the log cabins are delightful and comfortable. (This is our third stay. We love going back and enjoy the two hour drive through some lovely farmland.) The matinee dinner show we attended was entertaining but the accompanying buffet was bland (except for the meatloaf) and despite being at the VIP reserved table of... More

We were in the Whispering Pines cabin which is an ideal setting in the woods along the river with rustling trees. That is, of course, if there isn't a dirt bike tournament going on next door. Check first. We laughed and then went hiking in another area. Fantastic hiking trails. We would encourage everyone to eat at the restaurant. We... More

A rustic cabin, lush forest, challenging trails are some the exciting things that awaits you at White Pines Inn. It is a great place to spend a weekend. The staff is absolutely friendly. We stayed in cabin 4. A tiny but cozy cabin complete with a fireplace. When you do decide to visit, say hello to Max the "Cabin Protector".

Tucked into the state Park, this beautiful Inn with it's private cabins is the perfect weekend get away. Each cabin is small, complete with fireplace, Queen bed, candles, bathroom, and TV. Community bonfire circles are perfect for sitting under the stars toasting marshmallows. Hiking trails are well marked and allow for beautiful views of the park and wildlife. No trail... More

The rehearsal and reception dinners were both at the lodge; the food was good for rehearsal and outstanding for the wedding supper The wait staff was very accommodating and helpful without being intrusive. The lodging was great too with the beautiful rustic cabins and the surrounding forested park. The wedding took place at the "Wedding Canyon" and was lovely; the... More

The only bad thing about the cabins at White Pines Forest State Park is that they are not winterized so they're not open year long while the park is. I find hiking or snowshoeing through White Pines even more beautiful than hiking in the summer. But what if you don't want to drive home after all that activity at the... More

Fun little cabin getaway from the city - just an hour and a half drive from the western Chicago suburbs. Great for a romantic night away from home. The CCC architecture and gas fireplace in each cabin makes it cozy. Food at the cafe was good and the area was pretty for a short hike. Pillows were not particularly comfortable,... More

Every year, on the first weekend of May, the Tri-County Gun Club holds their annual "Open House" weekend event in Polo, IL. That's quite a long haul from my homes and so I usually stay in a cabin at White Pines State Park. They're the best lodging in the area in terms of convenient location, wonderful setting, and availability of... More
