A most excellent experience! We stayed just one night on our first trip to the Galena area. Vel Terra Ranch is a small independent campground with level RV sites, water and electric hookups, sparkling clean restrooms/showers, free firewood, free WiFi, decent Verizon cell service, and an owner who goes out of her way to make everyone feel at home. We'll return!

What a great little spot. Short drive to Elizabeth and 20 minutes from Galena. Spacious campsites on grass with partial tree cover. Full electrical and water service. Newly constructed bathrooms with showers + unlimited free firewood! The owners are extremely helpful and very friendly. We had a fantastic visit. Vel Terra Ranch is not situated on a lake or river so there no swimming. I highly recommend this spot for anyone who wants to camp fairly close to Galena amenities.

We found this hidden gem of a place while searching for a campsite near Galena. We wish we had had more than one night to stay and would definitely return. The camp is small, quaint and very well maintained. Facilities are exceptionally clean and the hosts are very pleasant. The free firewood is an added plus. A perfect place for a camping get away surrounded by an area rich in shops and events
