This KOA is located half way between Rockford and Galena on rte. 20, about 1/2 hour drive from the attractions at Galena.Its also not far from Debuque Iowa. The campground is clean, manicured, has nice bathrooms, a well stocked camp store and a friendly staff. We arrived shortly after closing but the owner ( Joe ) reopened and checked us... More

Lodge #1 was infested with mice, cobwebs everywhere, faucet water that smelled like sewage, dirt & debris all over the floor. Mgmt didn't seem concerned about it. By far the filthiest place I've seen.

We have stayed at the Lena KOA several times and it was always great. We had booked the teepee for a visit with our grandkids but due to schedules we had to cancel. When I called to cancel I was told that I had booked a 20' pull through, not the teepee. I was, in different words called a liar,... More

We had a great time with one night of camping, service was excellent, pool was not too cold, and the band was loud enough that we could just hang at the campsite with the dog and listen. I would have liked a tree or two by the dog park, our black dog was very hot very quick in the August... More

We stayed here weekend of July 18th. When we made our reservations, we wanted a cabin and a campsite next to each other. Allie worked with us to get a site and cabin next to each other (C10 & KTG4). The camper site is kinda in front of the cabin and it was a absolutely perfect setup for people camping... More

This is an excellent campground. The facility is extremely clean, neat and safe. The management and staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We had no trouble maneuvering our big rig and the site was more than sufficient size. There are tons of things for children to do. There were some gnats to contend with but it was the same way...

I would have given this campground a 5 star rating for sure if it was not for the gnats! They are everywhere and they bite worse than a mosquito. I welted up all over the place. I talked to one of the owners and she said that there was some kind of spray that a local store sells. Oh, yeah... More

The drive from here to Galena is half the fun on Stagecoach! As for the campground, it's a little close to the road, but that's the only negative thing I can say. The store is open late and they deliver firewood to your site (buy in bulk packages to get a discount). They take you to your site which I... More

Love this place. They always treat us well. We have gone camping here for several years. Our family loves it. The trampoline pillow is a big hit!! The pool and restrooms are well maintained. The owner is very nice - we always have a great time staying here.

We camp almost every weekend, and this is one of our favorite campgrounds!! We camp here often with several friends and family. The owners Joe and Diane Long are wonderful and very accommodating! This campground is very clean, very kid friendly, and has a nice, clean shower house! One of the best shower houses of any campground we have stayed... More
