“Short stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

There is some things to see. We watched a barge go through up close. There is a lot about what kind of birds and animals are on the river. A cab of a barge for the kids to play in. Free viewers to look through at Starved Rock. You can get some really good pictures of starved rock from across the river. Worth a stop but you will not be here long.
