For Guests

Welcome to The Territory
On behalf of The Galena Territory, welcome!
We’re glad you’re here.
Summer has come to The Galena Territory! Streams are running and vibrant color is returning to its 6,800 acres of woodlands. As a getaway destination, no other place in the region boasts 63 holes of championship golf found at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa.

Together, The Galena Territory and Eagle Ridge offer elegant accommodations, excellent food, tennis, horseback riding, swimming pools, boating, fishing on 225-acre Lake Galena, and hiking and biking through 32 miles of wooded trails. Most importantly, all of these activities are served by thoughtful staff.
