  • Very nice park. Large with Kankakee river flowing through. Peaceful and serene. Plenty of picnic spots and shelters for groups.
  • It is sad how different is places from what it was when I was young. Hardly used, no money to keep it up appropriately. The days of enjoying a day at the State Park are long gone
  • Hunting, fishing, and hiking are all available! 4,500 acres! Pheasant, rabbit, squirrel, archery deer, spring turkey and fur bearer seasons. Rock Creek is stocked with trout for both fall and spring seasons. 10.5 mile half-paved / limestone bike path. Fantastic smallmouth bass fishing available. Hiking trails in Area A and Rock Creek Canyon. Hand trap range and archery range within the park.
  • Really bueatful park along KAnkakee river, good fishing,bike trails/walking,just enjoy the outside fresh air
  • Beautiful environment next to the Kankakee river. Lovely trails line the river and plenty of shells and muscles can be found on the shore line. Nature undisturbed and at its finest. Bathrooms and facitities are located throughout.
