Pere Marquette Lodge & Conference Center

As a centerpiece of Pere Marquette State Park, the lodge and restaurant are an attraction for visitors from miles around.

The centerpiece of the rustic timber 1930s Great Room is the 700 ton stone fireplace and life-size chess set. The Great Rooms beckons visitors to pull up a chair and a glass of wine with a view of the Illinois River.
