What a wonderful small campground so close to Apple River Canyon Park and Galena and is also very safe and homey. Just visited this sweet place a few days ago and was greeted with such friendliness and hospitality.

Sharon and her husband are very accomodating hosts, and have established a gem of a place to stay in beautiful JoDavies County. The shower building is very nice, and the litlte store is very... More
