Live Music With Kevin Kramer

Meet us in the Starved Rock Lodge’s Great Hall for check in
and to receive your lunch.  You will board a trolley to take you
to the Belle of the Rock, an authentic paddle wheel boat.
 
Aboard the boat you will hear and enjoy the history of many
river songs, such as Proud Mary, Alabama’s Tennessee River
and Credence Clearwater Revival’s Green River.  After the
1 ½ hour lunch cruise you will re-board the trolley for a
historic tour with stops at the State Park Visitor Center
and the Illinois Waterway Visitor Center.
