Great Outdoors
Rock Falls , IL

This 1/2 acre park offers an exciting view of the Rock River and features excellent fishing just below the Lower Dam and includes excellent views for Eagle watching and photographing during the winter.

The Site is complete with a concrete boat ramp with curbing on either side; 40' by 4' wide courtesy boat docks extending out into the river; a bituminous surface, parking area to accommodate 30 car/boat trailers with concrete parking bumpers to designate the stalls and three Pin Oak Trees have been planted to add a little aesthetic beauty to the site.  For safety, there has been installed a steel cable and buoy system that extends East to the 1st Avenue Bridge and then North across the river to National Manufacturing to prevent boaters from being swept over the dam.  An additional safety feature included the installation of a new steel cable and post guard rail along the entire length of the high wall above and below the dam, a favorite fishing spot for the local anglers.
