We rented one of the cabins for a weekend getaway. For the cheap price, it was well-worth it, The cabins are very small and would not recommend for a family stay. The mattress are very uncomfortable The entire campground is very compact (to the point where you have people sitting in the road to use their firepit) and there is... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting historic Galena. Campground is close to Walmart and historic downtown. We were traveling in our motorhome so we did not use the showers or bathroom facilities. Campground was well kept; they even had a trick or treating night for the kids when we were there! WiFi worked great from... More

We were here as part of the Northern Illinois BMW Riders camp-out. The weekend was wet but we don't blame the campground for that. :-) This place has nice shady camp sites, plenty of beautiful trees, sites with or without electricity, small a/c cabins and the usual big RV sites. The old bathroom facilities are combined within one space, without... More

Good - $1 washers and dryers that work great, not crowded on a Monday and Tuesday, well maintained grounds. Bad - weak WiFi ok for email, sites are a little too close for comfort. Ugly - the showers were the pits, toilets passable

I love everything about the campground! So much for the kids to do! It was a win win for all! The pool was perfect in the hot July weather, and restrooms were clean and close to Walmart and Culvers was a huge bonus during our stay. 5 minute drive to downtown Galena!

It was hot! We enjoyed the pool and we're thankful for the dryer. Staff was friendly and bathrooms were clean. Bathrooms were outdated but clean. My 3 year old enjoyed the baby pool and my 9 year old liked the diving board. Kids had fun mini golfing and my 15 year old went golfing at Galena golf club close by.... More

We stayed with Palace for 10 days while visiting family and day tours to wineries and downtown Galena. Staff was friendly. Sites are smaller, but they were able to accommodate our 42' fifth wheel with 5 slides. Had some really noisy neighbors (until 3am} one night, but staff took care of that and it was quiet the rest of our... More

Stayed here over the weekend for a Sisters On The Fly outing. As a tent camper and an electric user, I found the tent site assigned to me to be lacking. You don't put a tent camper on a large hill without any level space to place a tent. All night long I kept slipping downward on my air mattress... More

My husband and I have never been to a campground before. In fact we've never really camped. We came to Galena with another couple and their RV. The rates were more than reasonable, the staff was friendly, and the accommodations were very nice. They have nice bathrooms to use, a pool, and easy hook ups for the campers and RV's.... More

We go here at least once every summer. It's a nice, clean and quiet campground. We always use the short cut over the hill to Walmart. We get pool toys for the great pool here. It's a very relaxing time.
