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. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

We enjoyed the Lincoln Museum. The theater shows there are great. Lincoln's tomb is very moving. Also toured Dana-Thomas House which is not far away. Pop into Cafe Moxo on E. Adams ST for a chicken pot pie! Awesome!

This is a great stop right off I-55 just south of Springfield. We have stayed here multiple times and always feel right at home. The owners keep adding to the amenities and keep the park up very nicely. I used the laundry this time...very clean and nicely decorated. There is a choice of places to walk our dogs. A "Go-to" when we travel through IL. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice place to stop. Sites are a little close and many are heavily shaded. We wanted to use our satellite so we were shown a pull through perfect for satellite. Wifi was good. Interior roads are gravel as are the sites. Grounds are well manicured and maintained. We will stay here again in the future. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground has just about everything you could want - easy on and off I-55, pull through gravel sites, good interior roadways, recreation area with lots of stuff to do, pool, dog walk area, laundry, and camp store. It is close to all the sights in Springfield. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My only (silly) complaint was that the wifi didn't always work. Given everything else this campground had to offer, I'd say it was one of the best we've stayed in during our four years of full time travel around the U.S. I'll not only be back when in the area, I'd opt to live here if I could!!

This is a well managed and well-maintained park. Sites are level and utilities are well located. If you are there to see the Lincoln attractions this park is nicely located about 7 miles away. I did feel like it was a little overpriced for the time of the year since the pool was closed. Would stay here again. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park was great in many ways. Easy access off of I 55, most sites are pull through, most are level, with full hookups and 50 amp. Clean showers, restrooms and laundry room. It is close to I 55 but the noise level from the interstate was not bad at all. The only problem we had was 1 member of the staff was VERY rude. He barked out orders like a drill sergeant. ( Why treat paying customers like crap?) The rest of the staff was very friendly. The site we were assigned was just long enough for our 39 ft fith wheel and truck, but they do have sites for big rigs. We camped at Double J in a fith wheel.

Clearly designed by someone who thought of the campers. Night spot light at bathrooms to help find at night. Signs noting storm shelter, nearest ER. All sites pull thru; offer free camping space for community not for profit groups, ie cub scouts, girl scouts, others. Clean! Quiet. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

Great jogging along historic Route 66 that the campground is located on. Good camp store but anything special should be picked up in town before going to campground. Not much around it. Tell them I said hi and thanks again for great service.

Everything about this place is great.....friendly and helpful staff, guide to site, roads easy to negotiate, well-groomed level gravel pads, nice grass between sites, cable TV, good wifi (slow during peak use), great dog walk area. Very convenient to Lincoln sights downtown with Walmart on same road on way back. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Couldn't ask for more. Would definitely stay again.
