Illinois State Park Lodges

Whether your preference is a hotel room with a view of Lake Michigan, a cabin in the Shawnee National Forest, or a historic Lodge room just a short hike from a waterfall in a magnificent, glacier-carved canyon a visit to one or all of Illinois' eight State Park Lodges is a must. There you will find comfortable overnight accommodations, fine dining spots, gift shops, and recreational opportunities abound. Four of the Lodges were built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps and one is believed to have been constructed by James McFarland (1776-1837) and operated as a tavern & later as a boarding house to serve the Ohio River travelers with all being listed on the National Historic Register. The other three are more modern facilities. We hope you enjoy your stay.
