My husband and I stayed at Sugar Shores RV Resort in Durand, IL for an extended 4th of July weekend. WOW! The park is located off a country road and borders the Sugar River. It's a friendly, quiet park with activities for the kids. We liked the fact that there wasn't an over abundance of activities, just the right amount. This overall kept the park quiet and peaceful. Upon arrival the staff escorted us to our site, owners on either side of our site were so friendly. This is an ownership RV Resort, there are quality sites still available for sale. It's a diamond in the rough, what a find. State of the Art Septic System - 50 amp service, electric golf carts allowed, swimming pool/clubhouse/shower houses and laundry room clean and well appointed. You can just feel the owners of this Resort really care about they're investment. We made some great memories here and can't wait to go back.
We camped at Palace Campground for a weekend in June. Sites are nicely laid out, staff was friendly. Many activities in and nearby campground. One of the drawbacks we felt was that they don't allow you to bring your own firewood in the park. Swimming pool was very crowded. We enjoyed our weekend but the next time we plan a trip to Galena we would probably stay at a hotel.
