Huge attendance numbers again at Starved Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on May 30, 2016

So did you go out and enjoy Starved Rock State Park this past weekend or did the crowds scare you off?

Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire thinks when you count Memorial Day, the park had around 100,000 visitors. Attendance Saturday and Sunday alone topped 70,000.

The park was over its capacity Sunday afternoon which caused people to be turned away. Monday was considered to be at capacity but the park didn’t technically close like on Sunday.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
