Double J Campground and RV Park, Chatham, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

I should have noted the previous posters note about being very strict on rules. I would not stay here again as it is not a family oriented campground: management is very strict, not friendly and overly intrusive. The highway noise is very loud all the time. They seem to go out of their way to make sure you camp exactly how they think you should camp. Here are the things we did wrong. We parked slightly crooked, required to park behind our camper which prevented me from hooking up my sewer line due to the long distance to my hookup at the front of the rig. My child played basketball 5 minutes too long and prevented a worker from leaving exactly at 8am. We were not allowed to place a door mat outside on the dry cracked mud as it may damage the ground. We were 7 minutes late removing dry clothes from the laundry and were locked out. Bottled water was not allowed in the pool area, it may contaminate the pool water. Kids cannot go to the bathroom without an adult unless you are 17 years old. No bike riding after 8pm. The office person was not much help locating a grocery or convenience store, did not seem to have one in the area. The bathrooms were somewhat clean, although we had to hold the water on for showers and sinks. It is obvious why this campground is only partially full and the others are booked. Spend your time at the KOA which has spotless bathrooms and very friendly and knowledgeable people willing to help and make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. This campground felt more like a WWII prison camp than a relaxing campground to enjoy. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
