Park closes briefly after high attendance Saturday

Posted by wlpo on September 3, 2016

When Starved Rock State Park closes on a holiday weekend, it’s a very good indication of how many people are in the park.  IDNR announced on their Twitter page that as of Noon Saturday the park was closed. It later reopened about 3pm.

The park closed earlier this summer one weekend. Visitors numbers were estimated at that time to be about 26,000.  It’s a good possibility the same could occur Sunday and Monday of this holiday weekend.

IDNR recommends you check their Twitter page for the latest and expect delays on roads leading to the park.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
