I stayed in the cabins with my two sons. They were visually very charming, and nice and clean. There was a great little area for the kids to play and have a campfire, which they loved. It also happened to be the trick-or-treat weekend which is held in September, so that was really fun for us. I would recommend this... More

Stayed at this campground for three days. Nice rural setting. Sites are smallish but well maintained. They have free outdoor movies and free hay rides on Saturday. The hayride was fun. They kept giving rides until everyone had a ride. WFI is also free. The back area is really nice. A lot of trees and a great place to take... More

I work in customer service. The customer isn't always right but when you tell a customer one thing but then charge another i have a problem with that! The lack of caring is really unbelievable to me. The whole point is to get customers to come back not for them to have to go online and write a review to... More

Questionable location, taken back a bit by being so close to interstate 20, and just over the hill from Wal mart. Cabin was nice on the inside. setting back in camping area was a little woodsy, but you could still here highway traffic. Plus side to location if you forgot anything it was easy to pick up... we were close... More

Spent a long weekend here for an annual gathering with friends. Facilities were well kept, staff was friendly, and relatively close to Iowa and Wisconsin. Bathroom facilities were ok, certainly not five star accommodations, but it's a campground of course, and pretty much comes with the territory. Overall a good experience, I'd stay here again if in the area

Sites were very small/narrow. There was no firepit. The water we hooked up to at the site was not something I would even put in my dog's water dish. We camp all over WI, IL & IA each summer & this was definitely one of the worse ones. We will not venture here again.

We stayed at the campground for 3 nights. We came to the area as our kids had games close. I have to say I was nervous from reading other reviews. Check in was fine but office was cluttered and smelled musty. Campsites are really close and luckily spot next to us was not in use or we would not have... More

We've rented the cabins at The Palace for several years. They are always very clean. The AC works pretty well and beds aren't too bad. We've also pulled our RV and camped in a site. This is a little less comfortable. We are packed in very tighly in most spots, with very little room to spread out. You feel really... More

It is hard to believe that this place is still in operation. I have to say that I have been at quite a few campgrounds and this is the worst. I didn't even think to look at reviews because everything in Galena is beautiful. Huge mistake. It looks as though this place was built in the 5 ' s or... More
