Come stay at the Comfort Inn & Suites Rochelle while visiting Castle Park and Lowden Miller State Forest. Henry David Thoreau has got nothing on these scenic dreamscpaes. He may have had Walden Pond on the edge of the wilderness but he didn’t have our comfortable beds with plush pillows to lay his transcendentalist head upon after a long day of pursuing his philosophical endeavors.
Castle Rock State Park and Lowden Miller State Forest may offer some enlightenment but they also offer pursuits in more practical arenas as well; think hiking, canoeing, picnicking even hunting and fishing.
Both parks offer hunting for squirrel, deer and turkey. For deer and turkey there are the seasons for firearms and archery. For those of you interested in hunting deer the really old fashion way Castle Rock State Park offers Muzzleloader season for Deer in mid-December.
All nature lovers will can enjoy the over 25 miles of maintained trails between the two areas. During the warmer months people can hike and take in the natural beauty. When the cold snow comes, take out those alpine skis and enjoy the trails all over again.
