Not Tent Material?

Stay In One of our 8 Rustic Cabins!

What great history we have with the Palace Campground Cabins! Back in the day…”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 in Galena.

Now located on 30 country acres only 2 miles from historic downtown Galena, we’re open April 1st through October 31st. Our eight rustic cabins are joined by scenic camping areas, mini golf, a game arcade, an outdoor swimming pool. Hayrides in the evening on Saturdays and an Outdoor Movie on Saturday Night!

A public golf course, grocery store, fast-food restaurants, Wal-Mart and gas stations are within one half mile from your campsite!

Each cabin has air conditioning and electricity, 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 combination. Cabins have electric, and Air Conditioning. Guests must provide linens.

A 2 night minimum stay is required on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
