  • I've been going to the Kankakee state park for over 30years now .my mom used to take us as kids now I live near by and take my kids.its still clean and fun and so much to do. 
  • We took our dogs here for a walk one evening. Very nice view of river and great walking paths. Nice and relaxing 
  • Great trails and overall beautiful park. Always a nice place to visit!
  • Great place to take a hike. Very peaceful and quiet
  • The highlight of this part is the long walking/biking path along the river. Trees provide lots of shade. They also have lots of picnic grounds and camping is available too. We often see people fishing from the banks of the river. It is also open during winter.
  • It's peaceful, fun, enjoyable and family friendly!
  • It's a wonderful park but the bike trail has been very poorly maintained for several years. Fallen trees are not removed for weeks at a time, the paved areas are full of debris and dangerous, and the Davis Creek section has been closed for at least two months because of flood damage. I would rather have them charge an admission fee and maintain the park better than what is happening now. There are no concessions, just a few soda machines. Most of the rest rooms are closed. Recently, there has been some badly needed repaving but that's because someone provided grant money for the project. Sadly, the park is another victim of the mismanaged state finances. I live in Bourbonnais and ride in the park almost every day. I have had an excellent opportunity to observe the deterioration that has been going on for the past several years.
