Located in Rockford, Illinois – Rock Cut State Park is the largest state park in Illinois. We first stayed there last summer and have been there three more times this year. It has become our “go to” campground for easy weekend getaways because it’s less than an hour from our house.
The campground offers 270 campsites (210 with electric and 60 non-electric) and is broken up into 6 different loops/sections. So far we’ve stayed in the 500 loop (Prairie View) because the sites appear to be larger and it’s a smaller loop the furthest away from the larger loop. We like that a number of the sites are wooded and provide a nice bit of privacy.
The State Park
Rock Cut State Park has a large lake where you can boat, swim and rent kayaks. It has a fair number of hiking, biking trails along with several fishing spots. It’s a nice little getaway not to far from home. Not the most scenic but nice place to escape the city for a weekend.
