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.

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. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

A small campground just off the interstate. Owners were wonderful and very helpful. Lovely mowed walking trail. In the middle of farmland. Stocked fishing pond. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

Older RV park, but nicely kept. Sites narrow, and neighbors close. each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Good Verizon signal. Park has Tengointernet but it seemed better than average when tested. Sites are tree covered and only a few will be good for roof satellite call in advance to try to reserve one. There are a number of over the air channels. Carry out dishes may work in the first or last rows with some luck. Nice pool. Lots of grass for the dogs. There are walking trails to the rear of the campground but would use OFF for buggies. RR noise and traffic did not bother us. Our site was long enough for our 35' Class A and toad with room to spare. Site are gravel, may board to level due to some depressions left by tires. Good place for an overnight stop. Have stayed here several times in the past and always found the campground hosts nice and friendly. They will also lead you to your site and make it easier for you to get in to some of sites. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet and shady, nice over-night stop on a hot day

and with a pool to boot!

The staff was helpful and informative.

Far enough from the freeway that there was no road noise.

While their wifi provider is Tengo, it was the first time we have ever had Tengo when everything worked.

We'd certainly stay here again. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Off the road a bit, but worth it. Very friendly staff. While the spots are a bit close together, there are abundant trees providing shade. The sites are reasonably level.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds in Illinois. We grew up in the area so it's close to family and friends. The sites, while gravel, are long enough to accommodate our 40' coach and tow. The sites are under tall shade trees and in the summer are cooling and rustling. The sites have full hook ups including 50-amp service. The park owner is welcoming, fun to talk with, and works diligently to make his guests comfortable. I gave our site a four-star rating since it was gravel not cement. We camped at Galesburg East Campground in a Motorhome.

We seek out microbreweries in our travels and love Iron Spike in Galesburg. The Galesburg area is full of immigrant railroading history.
