the great outdoors

right near the vermillion river which offers a white water rafting trip in the early season, just about 5 miles from starved rock.


25 sites to choose from, they fill up fast on weekends so plan to make reservations early. the glampouts are a blast.

wide open

open field type setting within walking distance to starved rock. there’s a bar out front and you can drive right up to your tent.


if you want a nice riverfront camp site this place is perfect. they also have kayak rentals available.


campground is located a couple miles from the main lodge, miles of hiking trails, kayak rental available. the sites range from primitive to fill rv.

quiet time

nice and peaceful morning

Beautiful state park camp ground

Located about 2 miles from the main entrance of starved rock, the campground books up fast during the summer, reservations are usually needed. Great sites, friendly staff and all around beautiful area.

Next door to starved rock state park

Open field primitive camping, price is $8.00 per person. Located behind papa murphs bar right across the street from St. Louis canyon at starved rock state park

Waterfront sites, kayaking, right next to a state park

Camp sites are dotted next to the shore of the river, there’s kayak rentals, and there’s enough space for multiple tents on one site. If you forgot your tent they rent them out as well.
