The holiday season is a beautiful time to visit Starved Rock State Park in Lasalle County. Along with scenic nature around every corner, there are several holiday traditions that you can only find in the spectacular Northwoods of Illinois. From festive holiday lights and decorations to historic houses all dressed up for the season, there are several events to help you and your family enjoy the most wonderful time of year. Add a little rustic charm to your vacation and reserve a cabin or villa at Grizzly Jack's. In between Christmas events, you can splash around our indoor waterpark and enjoy holiday dining at our restaurants.
Rotary Park in Lasalle is famous for its magnificent display of holiday lights. Grab a cup of hot chocolate or a box of homemade fudge from the Honey Pot Sweet Shop at Grizzly Jack's before heading out for a drive to see the brilliant display of Christmas decorations. Or step back in time when you tour a historic home in the Northwoods. All month long, the Weber House & Gardens in Streator, IL will be hosting their annual 18th-Century Christmas open house with candlelit tables and sweet treats to celebrate the season.
These are just a few of the holiday events in and around Starved Rock State Park this Christmas season. Want to see even more?
