In nearby Galena, there are a number of activities and experiences that guests of this glamping property simply cannot miss out on. Glampers can try their hand at doing yoga in the park, riding a scooter to the vineyards, kayaking or canoeing down the Galena River, discovering the banks of the Mississippi River, enjoy the nightlife on Main Street in downtown Galena, and, come wintertime, skiing or snowboarding at Chestnut Mountain. In addition, Galena boasts a great selection of shopping and dining options for guests, too. Equally as nice, however, is simply staying at this expansive ranch property and kicking back in a hammock with a good book and nothing but soothing countryside noises for company.
