Giant City State Park, Illinois

The Giant City Lodge, was constructed in 1930's. Check out their water tower, that will stretch your leg muscles to places you might have realize it will or could stretch??!!? NO KIDDING!!! Giant City State Park, 235 Giant City Road, Makanda, Illinois (618) 457-4836. It was a gorgeous day for a hike, so we took a nice hike around this trail. I was trying to recall the length ...just nice one. Just right. Can you see me? A balancing rock there, makes you wonder how long ago it was settled in like that? Will it ever move or what???!?!?!? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;
