Stayed both going and returning from our eventual destination. We discovered that we had an internal electrical problem with our travel trailer. Galesburg's management did everything they could to help us. We really appreciate their quick service. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Well-run, well-maintained park. Level sites, plenty of room for tow vehicle. Owners very friendly, promptly responded to and resolved electrical issue at our site. Nice one-mile trail through the woods and around the pond. Stopped for an overnight but would have enjoyed a few days here. Overall a very nice campground. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

Plenty of shopping nearby. Galesburg has a nice downtown area. We ate dinner at Iron Spike Brewing. Very good food and beer. The poutine was delicious!

Beautiful tree-lined campground, very well kept with lots of pull-thru sites. Satff members provided us with outstanding service after our towed vehicle needed a jump outside the park. Would highly recommend this park. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

A former KOA park that is doing well. Really nice property and we enjoyed our overnight stay. Convenient to the interstate but quiet. Would stay again. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been going to this campground for several years. This year there was new management. The campground seems to be more seasonal campers now. The clientele just didn't seem to be as friendly. They have a nice pool, but it is small and very busy. They have free peddle carts to ride for the kids. It has a nice laundry area, library, and small store. All sites are pull thru which is one of the reasons we use it for overnight stay. They also have games and a pool table. It is not a bad place, but it just isn't as good as it used to be.

The most amazing foot trails through Pecan forest. Perfect sites nice spacing. Middle of nowhere which is what we like but if you are into lots of kids stuff and want to be close to attractions skip it. Want great peaceful facility built for easy mountain bike and hiking trails on lush grass come here! We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

LOVED, LOVED this campground and staff. Bathrooms were immaculate and the staff was wonderful. Mind you we had no reservations on the weekend before 4th of July and was able to get the last spot open. We were only going to stay one night and decided to stay an extra night. The owners were friendly and seemed to enjoy what they do. Planning another stay soon this time with the family. Other campers were friendly and seemed to enjoy quietness as much as we did.

We have stayed at this campground many times in the past. It now has new owners, who are very friendly and nice. Sites are narrow but doable, just take it slow. Unhook toad at check in may be best option. Our site was long enough for 36' and toad. Campground mostly trees, so satellite is not an option, unless you set up a manual dish or have a carryout, then only a few sites. Our site worked with a carryout (16). FHU's mid site. Wifi was very slow early evening, from overloading. (the camp was full) probably good early or late. Good Verizon and T-Mobile. Some OTA. Plenty of grass for Rover. Did not notice any road noise. Well kept campground with pool. Will stay here again. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopped here as an overnight stopover and was pleased with this campground. The check in was easy and the girls were super polite! The campground was very clean and well kept! The sites were close but was ok as we were just staying one night. This would not be a destination spot for us but it did just the trick for what we needed. Pulling out of our site was just a bit tricky because of the other vehicles across from us but was doable. We would stay here again. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

A great place to park. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful. They are also putting in new sites so that larger rigs will be able to park. Our sat dish didn't work (because of trees) but who needs it! Very quiet and relaxing experience. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

The couple that greeted us at the registration desk who also own the campground were absolutely the friendliest folks I've ever dealt with! We stayed overnight on our way to Mt Rushmore. Sites are mostly pull thru and we had room for our 32' camper and F-150. The pool looked great but we only stopped for sleep. Would stay here again if in the area, maybe on the trip back home. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Older park but seems maintained to acceptable level. OK for overnight stop. Sites completely covered by shade trees so no ability to use sat dish on RV. There is no cable TV and mostly few local OTA channels. Lot's of what appear to be more permanent or seasonal campers. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground close to I-74 road noise not a problem. heard a train about once a day. Sites not wide but was able to park 45 foot 5er and TV unhooked. Owner was very laid back. Grandkids love the pool, playground and trails. Our club was able to use the clubhouse free. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
