Delabar State Park

North of Oquawka near Illinois Route 164

Located on the Mississippi River about 1 1/2 miles north of Oquawka near Illinois Route 164, Delabar State Park offers quality outdoor experiences for anglers, hikers, campers and picnickers.

Many of the Henderson County park’s 89 acres are forested with sturdy oaks, along with some birch and hickory trees. These forested areas serve as natural habitat for a variety of wildlife species, including squirrel, rabbit, raccoon, deer, groundhog and quail. More than 50 species of birds have been identified in the park, making Delabar State Park a natural haven for birders from throughout the state.

The park is named to honor two brothers, Roy and Jack Delabar, who donated the site to the state in 1959 to be developed as a state park. The park officially opened in 1960.

I was there at the height of summer. The roads are terrible, trash everywhere and everything is rundown. There wasn't a single car or person there.

Nice place for a drive through very scenic park.The views of the towering pines and other trees as the sun breaks through them are spectacular.You can hike or drive and restrooms are avaiable.
