- Pirate's Cay Indoor Waterpark
Picturesque Starved Rock State Park is in Ottawa, IL, is about 20 minutes south of the resort and offers 13 miles of well-marked hiking trails. There’s also a visitors center and shop, plus they offer guided hikes year-round. The best time to see waterfalls, viewable in 14 of the 18 canyons, are in the spring when the snow and ice melt.
Joliet, IL is the closest larger city to the resort, less than 45 miles away. If you get a chance, catch a show or concert at the Rialto Square Theatre there. The stunning historical theater is close to 100 years old. On a different note, the Chicagoland Speedway is always a great time and, from NASCAR races to great tailgating, it’s a great vacation attraction to enjoy.
Don't Go Home Without
Before leaving for home, be sure to grab the family and spend a few hours in our Pirate’s Cay Indoor Water Park.™ You can’t beat the lazy river, four water slides, pirate-themed children’s splash zone area, and a couple of eateries for a great time with the kids any time of the year.
The resort is in a remote location to provide a relaxing, outdoors-oriented family vacation getaway. Some quaint small towns nearby, such as Ottawa and Sheridan, have a handful of historic attractions and restaurants to enjoy, plus walk-able town centers that perfect for an afternoon stroll followed by a great meal, when you want to explore the area.
