This park is great - even though it is next to I-55, traffic noise is minimal, probably because of all the trees in the park. They have a great playground area for kids. My husband was impressed with the lady at check-in. She gave him all sorts of information about local sights, directions, parking, etc. We would highly recommend this RV park. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of history here. We spent 4 days here to do sights and to rest on our cross-country trip. Very good place for both.

Very nice campground, pull through for our 41 MC plus toad was fine, much of the CG is wooded while the back is fairly open. Hard gravel sites and level. All hook up worked fine. We did not use any of the amenities such as pool or bathrooms. Pool looked very nice and crowded with lots of kids on a very hot day. Area is pretty dark after sunset. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our Garmin GPS took us miles out of the way. Just use Exit 88 on I55 and you'll only be two miles from the CG. The roads and sites are all gravel, well maintained and easy to navigate. Our site was level and good for satellite reception. While there for five days the Wi-Fi was only usable for two days. Lots of Wi-Fi points but gets overloaded easily.

This is a very organized operation, from the person greeting you get pull up, to the people at the check-in counter, to the guide taking you to the site - they were all very professional and courteous. The sites appear to be mostly or all pull-throughs, and the sites are all well laid out with easy to navigate roads. Nice pool and playground areas, free mini golf - plenty of fun stuff for the kids to do. Can't wait to come back. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. Nice clean campground close to Springfield. Long level sites, plenty of grass, no dirt! Clean warm pool. Check in was quick. They do have what I feel Is an excessive amount of goofy rules, but nothing that can't be overlooked as the campground is very nice. My only issue was the cable TV. I only had 7 stations and my buddy had about 50! Wasn't my Trailer because I ran the cable to his box and then I had the 50 Stations. No big deal, as I want here to watch TV. I would go back. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Be careful with Springfield. Hard to navigate and kind of dumpy in areas! Check out Charlie Parker's Diner for breakfast as seen on Diners Drive Inns and Dives. Great food and lots of it, bring your appetite!

Lots of good things here. Pool, putt putt golf, playground, lots of grassy space. Most sites are pull-thru. Mature shade trees and lots of them, well trimmed for navigating through. Playground, basketball court, volleyball, horse shoes. All utilities were good. Staff is great. Guided to site and helped with positioning/parking. Site spacing is better than average but no shrubbery between sites, only grass. Propane available and convenience store is good too. Corn field to the east but I-55 to the west 1/4 to 1/2 mile so you do get some noise, not bad at night though. Didn't hear any trains. Great proximity to Springfield for history buffs.

Follow directions on web site. Access is good. Interior roads and pads are good gravel. Sites are long and level. Staff great. Utilities are very good. Lots of space to walk the dogs. Exceptionally clean and neat. I-55 is within view, but about a mile away and you cannot hear the traffic. This park is 15 minutes South of Springfield. We would stay here again.

Park is convenient to Springfield activities, well organized, lots of outdoor activities, well maintained and staffed by helpful people. We had fun playing airhockey, pingpong, shuffleboard and the nearly impossible putt putt course. This park is clean and have staff always available. Liked the shaded site and dog park, basketball court, pool (Not yet open), and pavillion. Would stay here again. Heavy rains only left small puddles so good drainage.

Great park for visiting the Lincoln Museum. Site was level with full hookups. It is nice they lead you to your site. I feel the rates are high for off season. The site we had was great for sat. but you need to request because of trees. We will always stay at this park if in the area. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent stay, very clean, very quiet, nice park with lots of trees and big pet area. Well maintained, picnic table, level sites. Not many other rv parks were open in winter with full hookups and this place exceeded all my expectations, recommend! We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here only one night. It is overpriced in my opinion, especially since it is off season, cold and raining. It had been raining for days and some sites were flooded since the park is on very flat ground. It is a clean park and all hookups worked well. The roads are easy to navigate and big rig friendly. It's best to go off the directions given on their website. If you plug the address into your GPS, you may have trouble getting there. It can be a bit confusing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Initially booked for 4 nights and extended our stay an additional 2 nights. Campground was quiet because of the time of year. Well maintained. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Sites are long and not super close to each other. Sites in center of park have large trees for shade. Convenient from highway. Very large grassy area for pets (not fenced). Great signage around campground. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful little park. Easy on and off the big road and superb staff. We stayed for five nights to tour all things Lincoln. Easy to navigate through the park. I just followed the golf cart! Our site overlooked a huge farm field and was perfect. Great walking around the park for our dogs. Satellite hooked up and good Verizon signal. VERY convenient to Springfield and the tourist sites.
