Prophetstown State Recreation Area

Riverside Drive

Prophetstown State Park, on the northeast edge of Prophetstown along the south bank of the Rock River in Whiteside County, is a scenic and historic area offering a variety of recreational facilities. Once the site of an American Indian village, the 53-acre park derives its name from the Native American prophet Wa-bo-kie-shiek.

We pulled off the road and ate lunch in the park. The Rock River is beautiful and the park is very pleasant. The campground host stopped for a chat and provided a couple of brochures for the park and one with information on historic buildings in Prophetstown. It would be interesting to camp in the park and stroll around the town to eat, shop, or visit a museum. The native American history associated with the park is also fascinating.

I always spot a lot of wildlife, fishing is great, with a boat launch. Camping area is a little cramped.
