Starved Rock State Park closes three times over the busy holiday weekend

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2016

Things should get back to normal today in and around Starved Rock State Park after a busy holiday weekend.

The state park closed for a couple hours during the early afternoon on Saturday, Sunday and Monday after there was no more room to park anyone. On Sunday and Monday the Dells are at Matthiessen State Park also closed for a couple hours.

The big story from the weekend at Starved Rock was a 17-year-old boy from Belvidere who fell about 50 feet Sunday in Pontiac Canyon. He was flown to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
