Starved Rock State ParkOne of the most beautiful parks in Illinois, Starved Rock State Park offers a breathtaking landscape of dramatic sandstone canyons, bluffs, rock formations, waterfalls, picnic areas and 13 miles of marked hiking trails through the rugged terrain. Hike the trails, explore the canyons or fish and boat on the Illinois River. The 18 dramatic ?canyons? at Starved Rock were formed by glacial melting and stream erosion. Climb Starved Rock - carved by millions of years of erosion - and learn about the legend of the Illinois Indians who died there in the 1700′s. The natural beauty and history of Starved Rock State Park will blow you away.
