“Large state park with tons of activities.”

Reviewed Jun 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Rock Cut is a great park with a large number of campsites. It seems like it’s one of the largest in northern Illinois and is heavily used on holiday weekends. There is a long list of services and amenities at the park making it easy to keep busy. Swim beach separate from the main lake. Boat rentals, (2) camp stores, restaurant, (2) dump stations, and many fresh water spigots.
in Rockford there is a children's museum that is pretty cool.

There is great mix of campsites to accommodate different peoples camp styles.
The 300, 400 and 500 loops are heavily wooded and smaller sites provide partial privacy.
On the outside of these the loops, many of the campsites are cut into the woods to provide a private cove. Sites 100 thru 200 are good for groups as it is wide open grassy aria.
There is a separate section that is non electric and for tenting only.
Bathrooms are decent however I would avoid the showers.

“Large nature preserve with fishing and great trails”

DO NOT ENTER VIA PERRYVILLE
USE RT 173 NORTH ENTRANCE
The Perryville entrance will send you to a dead end.

We visited some family in the area for mothers day. Having been to Rockford a dozen times i never knew something this nice was available. We used Reserveamerica.com to get reservations however if space is available the front office can get you set up there too. There are bike trails that are well maintained and circle the park. There are dirt trails snaking throughout the interior and around the lake for long dog walks or off road biking. Sites are gravel and vary in size. There had been a lot of rain the previous few days and some sites may be saturated to the point a large RV may sink a bit. During the weekend the park packed out to the max so get those reservations done early!

Access is easy from major highways however the park's roads are in need of repair
Location provides any chain or service you can think of within a short drive from the park however the park is large enough you don't feel in a city.
Cleanliness is well maintained with campers for the most part leaving no trace and plenty of staff. Single stream recycling is available too!
Site quality is rough, even for a state park but if you're like us, sometimes we prefer camping to glamping.
Noise is low and mornings are filled with bird songs.
