The Perfect Getaway
Located at the southeastern tip of Southern Illinois, along the beautiful Ohio River, the Cave-in-Rock State Park Lodge and Restaurant is managed by Marty and Annie Kaylor. Enjoy the rustic beauty of the cabins and lodge restaurant as you relax and unwind in this unspoiled nature area.
Spend a night, or a week, in one of the cabins perched 80' above the Ohio river on Pirate's Bluff and visit the legendary cave which gives the park its name. Although each cabin comes complete with a kitchenette, you can forget cooking, and dine in our family style restaurant, open on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy lunch and dinner as you relax by the warmth of the indoor fireplace or enjoy the outdoors while dining on the patio.
Bird watch from the comfort of your balcony or while eating at the restaurant! Our gift shop has books and guides available to help you become more familiar with this unique area of Southern Illinois!
Take a step back in time as you explore the infamous cave and imagine the flatboats that plied the Ohio River from Cincinnati south to the Mississippi River. and on westward, and the pirates that preyed on these travelers.
Loaded with comforts and amenities, the Cave In Rock State Park Lodge is the perfect site for family vacations, family reunions, or just to get away from it all.
A privately owned A-frame cabin, secluded, but fully equipped, is also available year round.
