Governor Rauner among many Planning to Visit Starved Rock State Park this Weekend

Posted by wlpo on October 8, 2016

If you were wondering whether Starved Rock is going to be busy this weekend, you’d only need to check out the governor’s calendar.

Governor Bruce Rauner is among the tens of thousands planning to head out to Starved Rock State Park this weekend. According to his public schedule, he’s planning to be at the Visitors’ Center at 10:30. Both he and his wife Diana will be hiking some of the trails.

They’re not the only ones with those plans. The state is preparing for the possibility of temporary closures of the park this weekend when and if all parking spots are filled. You can check for updates on the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Facebook and Twitter accounts.

No parking is allowed along park roads or highways. Parking at Starved Rock Lodge will only be for folks who have reservations.
