Morrison Rockwood State Park is an Illinois state park on 1,164 acres located north of Morrison. The park was established in 1971 and opened for day use that same year. It is named after the nearby Rock Creek and the heavily wooded park area “Rockwood.”

A trip to picturesque Morrison-Rockwood State Park offers many memorable experiences. A large sign in the shape of Illinois, fashioned from angle iron by a blacksmith, greets visitors at the entrance. Once inside, choose from a variety of recreational opportunities. Beautiful Lake Carlton, a stream-fed reservoir, features an abundance of ducks and geese and is considered a prime location for fishing. Morrison-Rockwood is a popular spot for a family outing at the Lakeview picnic area, or watching birds among the hickory, ash, oak and walnut trees.
