ABOUT US

Established in 1957, Starved Rock Marina has proudly been serving boaters for almost 60 years.


We are a full service marina offering used boats, dock rentals, storage, repairs, launching, and supplies!


We are a certified dealer for Rinker Boats, Sundancer Pontoons, and Landau Pontoons and we also have a large selection of quality pre-owned and brokerage boats.


We are located on mile marker 233.4 on the scenic Illinois River across from the beautiful Starved Rock State Park and minutes from Buffalo Rock State Park and Matthiessen State Park. We are easily accessible from I-80 and I-39 and are approximately 90 minutes from the Chicago suburbs, Rockford, Peoria, and the Quad City area.


Our marina is unique in that it has an unobstructed view of the Illinois River and Starved Rock; there are no grain elevators, factories, or industrial parks nearby.  The peaceful environment here is unmatched; you can hear the seagulls overhead and the boats putt-putting by without any distracting noise to disrupt your visit.  The natural beauty of this area is breathtaking and you will love every minute of being here.  


Other area activities include siteseeing in the historic towns of Ottawa (where Illinois and Fox rivers meet) and Utica as well as wineries, apple orchards, camping, fishing, hiking, a waterpark, and a championship golf course.  


Our marina is also the proud home port of Wide Waters Yacht Club as well as the Captain's Cove Bar & Grill, Weeta's Boutique, and Starved Rock Adventures rentals.
