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

We had a very nice time and this convieniently located campground. We were only there for a weekend but had a very nice time. I would have to say the full sevice sites are pretty tight but that is how a lot of the older campgrounds are. The people on both sides of us were very friendly so it was... More

We stayed here the second weekend in August, and we absolutely loved it! The staff was super friendly, and they were willing to help us with anything! I, personally, didn't notice any indifferent teenagers working at the facility, not that that matters anyway. The campground was conveniently located next to a walmart, so if we forgot anything it was nice... More
