Huge crowds expected at Starved Rock State Park

Posted by wlpo on July 2, 2016

How is the traffic so far in Utica?

After around 100,000 people showed up over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, state crews are ready for huge crowds again this weekend at Starved Rock State Park. The crowds during Memorial Day weekend filled up parking lots which caused a temporary closure of Starved Rock. This could happen again this weekend.

You can keep track of crowds and closure updates by following the DNR on Twitter or Facebook or Starved Rock State Park. Park officials sent out a tweet Friday reminding visitors that parking at the Starved Rock Lodge is only for lodge, restaurant, trolley and wedding guests. Everyone else is asked to park at the visitor’s center.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
