Description

This is a friendly community - just small enough to feel warm and safe but big enough to provide almost anything you want and need.

Historically, the area is quite interesting. Recreation opportunities abound. The Rock River and Hennepin Canal offer fantastic fishing, boating, hiking & biking, and beautiful scenery. There are fairs, festivals, and events throughout the year that we know you will enjoy. Rock Falls has been the Governor's Hometown Award winner many times in recent years.
