This socially distant Flock To The Rock promotion marks the the arrival of Starved Rock Country's famous bald eagles. Every year, a small stretch of the Illinois River, located between Starved Rock State Park and the Illinois Waterways Visitors Center, is turned into a temporary Winter camp for those enormous eagles.
The Illinois Audubon Society's Plum Island Sanctuary, located at the base of the Starved Rock Lock, has been used as wintering site for decades, giving guests a reliable chance at spotting these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. The island's seclusion, sturdy trees and proximity to a non-iced-over section of the river, make Plum Island particularly desirable real estate for these feathered fliers.
Eagle season runs through the end of March, when this rare lodging program will also conclude. Take advantage of this family friendly socially-distant nature vacation, book a night at Starved Rock Lodge and Conference Center or Kishauwau’s Starved Rock Cabins today!
