1 Park near Galena, Illinois
Aug 2015 - $37.00
If we hadn't been so tired and had looked in the bathrooms before we checked in we wouldn't have stayed here. Our check in was poor: after starting to look at the computer to see what was available for us, clerk stopped our discussion and took a phone call for a future reservation, making me wait over 10 minutes - I tried to get her to take the caller's number and finish my transaction, but had no luck.
Site assigned was a back-in FHU - no discounts available. We drove to site and picnic table was in middle of gravel path so we had to move it before we could park our rig.
The site was OK for us, partially because there was no one parked on either side of us. Had there been rigs on either side of us, it would have felt a lot tighter.
Went to use bathrooms / showers and turned around after looking at them. Toilets were very tight, you had to straddle the seat to close the door to the stall. Showers were gross with old moldy looking corners. Shower nozzle height was very low - maybe 4' up from the ground - good luck fitting under them for a good shower. Perhaps we're more critical of campground facilities because we've worked as work camper at some, but we felt like we needed tetanus shots after being in the restrooms. - yesmar

Not too thrilled with this campground - too crowded, pool is packed every day, trees in the way of the awning, etc. We chose to leave the park every single day as it was not relaxing at all. It's the only one near Galena, IL. However, next time we are heading back to Palisades State Park and will drive up to Galena for the day. Even though Palisades is bigger, it's much more roomy and not so noisy. - Med

This is the only campground in Galena which makes it a good base for exploring but also allows the owners to defer upgrades. Most of the full hook up sites are along the main road. All of the sites are tight and trees make using an awning a challenge. The full hook up sites have the most trees and the least amount of grass. The swimming pool looked clean, but since they allow the public to use it for a fee it was packed every day. There were lots of water only and tent sites that looked good for group camping. - Sugar's Dad
