Welcome to the Palace Campground, one of the oldest campgrounds in Illinois!

Located on 30 country acres Palace Campground is only 2 miles from historic downtown Galena, where history meets quaint little shops, coffee and tea houses, and fine dining.

We are a short ride from Chestnut Mountain Resort as well as Dubuque, Iowa where you can spend a day at the Mississippi River Aquarium.

Galena offers many outdoor activities for those who choose not to shop. Trek with the Goats, take a bike ride, or rent a kayak, all minutes from the campground

Check out Grant’s Home the city gifted him after the war, take a Trolley Ride and learn about the old Lead Mining Days, or stop off The Galena history Museum and learn about the Driftless Area.

When your day is done, come on back to the campground and enjoy a nice campfire or a late evening swim.
