“a DO NOT MISS destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This old a large lodge is a real destination - mostly during predictable weather. We have visited and stayed there during Christmas holidays in years past but since we are not in the area at that time anymore, we now have to visit in the summertime when it is far more crowded but still a worthy destination. Hiking is fun and safe, if you follow the rules, and the sights are lovely from the upper levels. There is plenty to do outdoors (altho a bad storm had just taken down some large trees last week) and the lodge is a lovely place to sit or to dine or to stay

“This is a Miniature gold and driving range!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

This place has just reopened after being closed for a number if years. The miniature golf course is very simple and pretty easy. The driving range has clubs to use or bring your own. It's a nice way to spend the afternoon or evening.

“Nice park, skip the river boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Very nice park, lots of picnic tables and bbq's bring your own charcol. Beautiful walking trails. Save your money for the riverboat cruise, certainly not worth 14.99, should be free or 5.00 at most.

“Great Getaway at Starved Rock”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I rented one of the cabins and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such unique geography and land formations, beautiful in any season, great hiking. The lodge is beautiful, good food in the restaurant, also enjoyed the pool and sauna.
