Canyons, streams, prairie and forest combine to delight visitors at Matthiessen State Park. Located in central LaSalle County, approximately four miles south of Utica and three miles east of Oglesby, Matthiessen is a paradise for those interested in geology as well as recreation. Visitors can expect to see beautiful rock formations in addition to unusual and abundant vegetation and wildlife. All of this, along with park and picnic facilities, make Matthiessen State Park a popular choice for a special outing.

Muddy trail but worth the view of falls. Kids loved the overall experience.

Awesome hike. A bit muddy in places, but not bad for the adventurous. Wear old shoes.

Loved it. The river was very high so that made it hard to go across the stones, but it was great.

My parents, son, aunt, and I absolutely love this place! Visited 3 times just last summer and will be back very soon! Gorgeous place!

Love it! Be prepared to get muddy and wet!

Beautiful scenery. The whole family will enjoy. Splash around and get your feet wet. You won't regret it.
