“A little bit of a drive (1.5 hours), this is our favorite outdoor spot in the area. Perfect for a quick day trip.”

Travel Agency
“Miles of hiking trails, canyons and ravines, Illinois River views. Call first in the spring as floods can affect access. Can be crowded in the summer months but beautiful. Our favorite time to hike is in the winter months when the waterfalls turn to ice.”

“They have a visitors center where you can go and watch barges go through the locks. A relative of ours actually died helping build it back in the 30s!”
