We had just picked up our new motorhome and spent the night on our way home. Check in quick and easy. The staff were friendly and helpful. They were able to provide directions to several restaurants, since we hadn't had time to buy any food. We did not use any of the amenities, but we did notice the pool, putt-putt golf, dog runs, and playground. The park appears well maintained and clean. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Good place to use as a base for exploring the Springfield, Il. area.

Very nice park in a good location about 20 minutes from the historical sites in Springfield. Level gravel sites in good condition, with grass between sites and picnic table and fire pit. Some of the sites are long enough to park a big rig and two cars in tandem. Lots of large trees provide good shade to all sites except a row of new pull-throughs along one edge of the park. Park is fairly close to highway but road noise was not that bad. If I had one nitpick it's that our site had the sewer at the very back and the power and water in the middle, which is the opposite of what we need. By carefully siting the rig and using our sewer and water hose extensions we were able to connect to the hookups. Some sites have the hookups in different locations, so you may want to ask about this when you make a reservation. Wi-Fi worked well; cable worked well but only has 12 channels. Restroom facilities were in good condition and well-maintained. Laundry is only open from 9:00 AM to 7:30 PM, which limits time available for doing laundry if you are out seeing the sights during the day. Amenities include a pool and playground. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly and helpful greeting staff and an escort to the site. Interior sites are pull-through with full hook-ups, cable TV, 30/50 amps. Power and sewer can be a long reach to hook-up. Roads and sites are gravel with grass, picnic tables with fire-rings. Laundry $1.50 wash and $2 dry. Nice store, pool, miniature golf, rec room, storm shelter. Large pet area but not an off-lead run. Propane on site but expensive. Easy access to the interstate, east and west. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lincoln House, Museum, Old Town and excellent video in Springfield at the NPS Historic Site. Shopping in and around Springfield.

The park was easy to access and beautifully shaded with nice trees. The gravel pull thru sites were long and level. The grounds look well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. WiFi was good. Cable was good. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed her overnight on our way south. We were in site 70 which was very easy to get our 40 foot rig in and out. When I booked this park I was told that the water was off do to the winter season. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find that some of the sites had heat tape installed so the water could remain on.

If there is anything on the negative side it would lack of cable channels. WIFI was excellent faster than our DSL at home.

We will most certainly stay here again when passing through. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped overnight on our way south. It is always open although water not available if freezing, which was not a problem for us in our 40 foot motor home. Sites are level. Easy access and calling ahead, the office will give great directions. We are thankful to have this for an overnight, quiet. Off season so there were not many others in the park, looks like the ones there are workers in the area as the sites looked set up for quite a while, but places were neat. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was a great campground! The owners had put a lot of thought into the accommodations and amenities. I had emailed them about availability and received an email back stating they had reserved us a spot, gave the spot number/its length. There was a large dog walking area, not fenced off which would have been nice but marked off well. We would definitely stay here again. We were far enough from the highway not to be bothered by the noise. We had Good Sams discount. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent park. Easy access from I-55, Chatham Rd exit. Originally thought it was a little overpriced, but soon changed our minds. Everything here is top shelf and the owners strive to keep it that way; even the train whistles were distant. Sites are tastefully arranged. Wi-Fi was fast, water tasted good, electricity never faltered, and cable TV worked worked. Showers and restrooms were super clean and the pool felt great. So if stopping by, call for a reservation telling them I sent you. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great, well-maintained campground. Sites are a little close together. Sites are level. Cable TV had static and not a clear picture. Overall we have camped here several times and will again. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow! This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed at. Large sites, most with shady trees to keep you cool. The campgrounds is large and very well maintained. Staff was friendly and welcoming and provided us with the park rules, directions and park services. We would definitely return and stay at this location in the future if we have the opportunity.

This is a great park. I had a shady pull thru site close to the laundry and showers, which were immaculate. Even dangled my feet in the pool for awhile. It is large and sparkling. Reminded me of old trips with my parents when I was young. I had booked for 2 days and extended for another day. Bought supplies in the store. WiFi was excellent and there were around 12 TV channels. The only thing keeping it from being a 10 is the road noise from the interstate. Of course, that made it easily accessible as well. Would definitely return if in the area. Very easy access to downtown Springfield historic sites. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.
