Rock Cut State Park on Mother’s Day Eve Day

Most Illinoisans drive to Wisconsin for lakes and woods but Rock Cut State Park just north of Rockford provides a fine experience of both without even leaving the Prairie State.

My family – from both sides of the state line – celebrated an early Mother’s Day at the park today with a picnic, hiking, games, an unauthorized swim, and lots of nature sightings including a pair of loons, bald eagles, and a very large frog.

Both the lake and the surrounding woods and prairie are large enough to give a good sense of getting away without having to go very far. I highly recommend this park.
