Starved Rock

Starved Rock State Park sees more than two-million visitors a year. It’s especially busy on holiday weekends.

Flood water reached its parking lots and is limiting the number of available spots, which means the park could quickly reach capacity this weekend and close to additional visitors.

Tim Schweizer, with the Department of Natural Resources, urges people visiting the park to arrive early.

Fire officials say a wildfire in LaSalle County is no longer burning. The situation caused road closures Tuesday and prompted warnings for people with breathing difficulties.
