Not Tent Material? Stay In A Rustic Cabin, Swim & Play Mini Golf at
the Palace Campgrounds!
“Big band” members from such notable groups as Lawrence Welk, Glen Miller, Tiny Hall and The Dorsey Brothers stayed in the cabins while performing at the Royal Palais Dance Hall.
Now located on 50 country acres only 2 miles from historic downtown Galena, we’re open April 1st to November 1st and the seven rustic cabins are joined by scenic camping areas, mini golf, a game arcade, an outdoor swimming pool, Saturday night outdoor movies and fast food. A public golf course, grocery store, fast-food restaurants, Wal-Mart and gas stations are within 1/2 mile from your campsite!
Each cabin has air conditioning and electric, and all are located near the showers. Each one sleeps five, with a queen bed and a bunk bed consisting of a double bed with a twin bed above. Cabins have a light, but do not have any linens. A 2 night minimum stay is required on Friday or Saturday nights.
Cabins Are NOT Available in October Due To Box Elders
