Not Tent Material?  Stay In One of the 8 Rustic Cabins at the Palace Campgrounds!

What great history we have with the Palace Campgrounds 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 50 country acres only 2 miles from historic downtown Galena, we’re open April 1st to November 1st and the eight rustic cabins are joined by scenic camping areas, mini golf, a game arcade, and outdoor swimming pool, plus Saturday night outdoor movies. 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 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 above. Cabins have a light, but do not have any linens. A 2 night minimum stay is required on Friday or Saturday nights and a 3 night minimum stay on holiday weekends.
