I'll start with a review of the cabin we stayed in. very clean and spacious. Nice view of the Ohio river. Grounds were well kept and neat. The park itself is not overly large and has limited things to do. Besides the cave, there is not much to do in the park itself. No pool. The lodge is small and only open on the weekends. We ate breakfast there one morning and the service was slow. I don't know if it is always that way, but it was for us. The highlight of the trip was the trip to Garden of the Gods. Very scenic and worth the drive. We also visited Rim Rock NP, also worth the drive.
Now to the bad. There is NO good place to eat on the Illinois side of the river. It is worth the drive to cross the ferry and find a place in KY. We drove all the way to Kentucky dam to eat at Patti's 1880. Also be sure to stop at the Amish store on the KY side of the river as well.
