Here in the summertime so no snow! Tried the Alpine slide which is great fun. You can buy a ticket for more than one ride. Great scenery.

Food was average. There were solo many flies in the restaurant hard to enjoy Tue food and so scenery. No one felt obligated to try to get rid of them

Stopped in Galena for the day. Decided to drive up to Chestnut Mountain (8 miles) to check out the alpine slide. So glad we decided to do this. Mid-week and in late August was a perfect time to come up to try our 1st run on the slide. Hardly anyone using the slide while we were there. The slide is... More

We were looking for something to do with the kids on a Friday evening and stumbled upon the mini golf at Chestnut. The rates were good and the course was well kept. Course is not very challenging, but fun nonetheless. Good way to spend an hour or so with the family.

Even though it's not winter, Chestnut Mountain has plenty to offer outside the snow-filled hills of skiing/snowboarding! Aside to the breath taking scenery of the rolling hills and all its natural wonder, you can take in the Galena Territory from the nostalgic "Dixie" style steamboat along the mighty Mississippi River. If that's not your cup of tea, perhaps, a ride... More

We got the 5:00 until dusk special for $20 each and after 8 times, stopped to get some dinner in the bar. Each round trip took about 12 minutes. The workers were friendly and helpful and the views were awesome. It was a first time experience for my 2 daughters and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

We took the river boat ride. The fun part was getting to the boat. We were running late and when we bought the tickets, they told us to ask the person at the alpine slide to go ahead of the line to make it to the boat. It was kinda like in the movies, as my wife an I ran... More
