Maps and Directions

We are centrally located in rural Galva, IL. We are only a few miles south of I-80, and easily accessable from Chicago, Peoria, Galesburg, or the Quad Cities. You can click on the map below to get an interactive map from MapQuest as well as driving directions. If you'd prefer, our general directions with landmarks are available below. Mapquest will steer you wrong on the last turn, so be watching for our Lucky Dog Lodge/Tip Top Dog Training signs.


Directions from Geneseo/Quad Cities

Directions from I-80:
Take exit 33 off of I - 80, this exit is labeled Kewanee and/or highway 78. You'll be going south (left) at this exit.

Follow this road over the hills and dales about 11 miles, until you get to Kewanee, you'll stay on this road all through town, under the skywalk, through the lights, etc. You'll stay on this main road, it stays highway 78 through town, and highway 34 hooks up with 78 although you won't notice it.

So, you're now south of Kewanee, back to the hills and dales, you are on highway 78/34 still going south. About 3 miles south of Kewanee you'll come to a place where highway 78 takes a left away from the road you are on. You'd actually have to get in the left turn lane to go onto 78, but you DON'T want to do that. You want to stay on hwy 34.

As you stay on hwy 34, you round a curve and are going west now.

You want to look at your odometer at that junction, because our turn is exactly 3 miles further west on hwy 34. Also, conveniently, it is the third cross road.

There is a sign that says Lafayette to the left, airport to the right, you'll be turning towards Lafayette (left). There is a farmhouse on the left before the turn, and a Tyson place on the right after the turn. (Midland road or 2350 road). You'll see our sign:



So, you've turned left and are now heading south. You'll be looking for the first cross roads, which amazingly enough is exactly one mile from where you turned!

This is OUR road, it is called County Road. You'll see another sign, and you'll be taking a left onto the gravel side. The Lodge is on the left, about 3/4 of a mile up, you can't miss it.

Directions from Peoria/I-74:
Head west thru/past Peoria on I-74. You are looking for the Canton/Kewanee exit, also labeled Hwy 78.

You'll take this exit and make a right to the North on Hwy 78, towards Kewanee.

Stay on Hwy 78 for about 23-24 miles, long straight, but nice road. You will eventually come to a stop sign, and a 'T' in the road.

You'll want to take a left at the stop sign. From this point you want to watch your speedometer, as the next turn is exactly three miles (and conveniently 3 crossroads) from this turn.

At the third crossroad, you'll see a sign that says Lafayette to the left, Airport to the right. You'll be turning left. There is a farmhouse on the left right before the turn, and a Tyson facility on the right, across from the turn. The road is Midland Road or 2350. You'll see our sign:



After turning left, you'll go one mile to the first crossroad, this is our road! You'll be turning left once again, onto the gravel side of the road. This is County Road. You'll see another Lodge sign:



The Lodge on the left, about 3/4 of a mile up, you can't miss it.

You'll see our Lucky Dog Lodge sign.
