Buffalo Rock State Park to Reopen on July 4, 2017

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources announced that Buffalo Rock State Park in La Salle Co. will reopen to visitors on Tuesday, July 4 at 8:00 a.m.  

The park has been closed since significant damage to trees at the park occurred as a result of a tornado that struck the area on February 28. 

Buffalo Rock’s River Bluff Trail and Woodland Trail will remain closed until further notice while cleanup of fallen and damaged trees on and along the trails continues.  Other areas of the park, including the Effigy Tumuli trail, picnic areas and shelter will be open again beginning July 4. 

Holiday weekend travelers are reminded that Buffalo Rock State Park will remain closed to drive-in and walk-in visitors through Monday, July 3 prior to the July 4 reopening.
