An adequate park for those wanting to explore Lincoln land, mostly given over to seasonal pipeline workers. The guy next to us had his car hood up and his gas tank removed all day. The park needs an overall cleanup/raking. Bath house was old and dark, but clean and functional. CATV excellent. - ebdavis

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost
May 2015 - $25.00
The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity. - mountainfan

This is a County owned campground! We were traveling so stopped a pull thru site for 1 night only. $25 for a night was fair. Campground was about 4 miles off of I 55. Sites were gravel and some were kind of close to level. 50 amp power, water and sewer hookups. Once we got set up we decided to checkout the bath house. Men's and Women's were both filthy and stunk. All the toilets were full of caked on feces, broken balloons were all over the floors, and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in a year!The floors were covered with paper towel pieces, and horribly dirty! First and last time for us, we will never be back because of the condition of the bath houses. Too bad as campground is nice and area seems nice too. - LaMonte

This is a very large facility with sites that range from paved parking lot to grass fields. We chose to stay on a mostly level grass area with some tree coverage. The drive in was dirt so probaly difficult to manuver in rainy weather. The 30 amp electric and water were easily reached. As there were no events at the fairgrounds, we had a large area to ourselves, however each site is actually very close together. When you arrive you either stop at the office, or if it is unmanned, pick a space and call security. They will unlock the electric box and collect the nightly fee. There are large grassy areas to walk dogs. The WiFi was included and worked well. We had good Sprint and Verizon service. We were able to pick up antenna service easily. - bbmidwife

We stayed here one night as we passed through the area. We have stayed at other fairgrounds and enjoyed the stay...not so at this one. Rough roads near office, sites with FHUs aren't laid out well in grassy area, they locked the main gate at 5:45pm while we were out getting gas. We could have stayed in the parking lot area, but with temps in the mid 90s last thing we wanted was hot asphalt. No picnic table and the grass needed to be mowed. We would not stay here again. - jtl2

Big rig friendly. Camped on one of limited full hook up sites on concrete pad. No dog park but lots of grass to walk dog. Bathroom and shower were old and very dirty. No cable but no problem with using our satellite. No other amenities. - Fulltimersrv

This park is very far off the beaten path and therefore very quiet. We stayed in a back-in overflow area with water and electric only because a weekend event had filled up the rest. The pool looked inviting. The mini-golf needed some TLC. We will stay here again if the others are full. - exceltraveler

Very far off the main highway. Country setting. Just keep following the signs!
Several new pull-thrus.
Nice playground. Pool. Miniature golf. Bouncing pillow. Basketball hoop. Cabins. Camping store. - Umbrella

The road getting to this park narrow and it goes over a very narrow one lane bridge. If you are coming into the campground in a large motorhome be aware it is very difficult to navigate the very narrow road. The campground overlooks corn fields. The campground is 7 miles off the interstate and I would not recommend staying here if you are planning on doing activities in the Springfield area. There are other campgrounds much closer to the historic sites in Springfield. - budolemiss

We really like this parks setting, sites, cleanliness and facilities. Everything worked fine & nice folks too. The only downside is it is very close to the highway and the noise is quite present...but it was hot so our AC buried it...but it might be a consideration for others.
We used it as a base for visiting the Lincoln Museum which was quite convenient and coming from the Museum back to the park, on RT4 Veterans Highway...is every store on earth for any needs you may have.
Note...our Garmin puts this park on a residential cul de sac about 4 miles away with some LOW branches! (Don't ask how I know!) Google had it right. You might wanna compare in advance if you have a Garmin.
Highly recommend this park. - Camaraderie

We stayed over Labor Day. The park was full and we still had good water pressure. Double J RV Park is very convenient to Interstate 55 and Springfield. The office is open late and has snacks and a TV area even though the sites have cable connections. Many sites have nice shade trees. They have a new pool. - RVknitter

Very nice campground Had plenty of room at the campsite and wide roads. Laundry was very clean. Will stay here again. - dec1949
Jul 2014 - $20.00
Park was clean, nicely kept with paved interior roads super for biking. Sangchris Lake holds numerous fishing tournaments and is usually full, as the sites are excellent for boating / fishing enthusiasts. Typical Illinois park, the sites having no water, sewer or Wi-Fi; however Verizon cell reception was adequate. - Moundstation

We stayed here two nights and could have stayed longer. We will come back here again. We had a nice spot on the lake. There were no bugs and it was a quiet camp. The camp host was very nice and friendly. The site was pretty level and there was plenty of room between sites. The sites were back-in. We were at the Hickory Campground and it is the one that has lake-front sites and the showers. Great place to fish. If you have a boat there is a boat ramp nearby. - Pamela & Gerald

We stayed at Deer Run campground. It was quiet, but needs some TLC or rating would be higher. The mowers cut the grass & any debris. I have picked up pieces of candy wrappers, paper plates, napkins, plastic spoon, duct tape, soda cans, etc. Tables need new wood. Fire/grill areas need weed eating. The is a lake at Hickory Point campground. Water is available at Deer Run but it's far away. A 75 ft of hos was not enough requiring a move of the RV to get close & fill up with water. Would stay here again as we need to go to Springfield occasionally. Stayed in loop A, site 12, 50 amp good, walk in site. - Peter K

Very clean showers although dated. Very level sites with good electric. Some in our group had difficulty with the 30 amp. Needed to use 50 with a 30 adapter.
Quiet and restful. Nice shelter for meetings/meals. Decent dump station.
New Salem Village was very interesting although there was only one busy volunteer who gave a good background on the village. Paved drives that made a nice thing for walkers. - Oldbug76

The park is dated, could definitely use some updates - but then Illinois is broke so doubt they are putting $$ into their parks. We had issues with the 30 amp electrical. Illinois doesn't refund at state parks, so we were without power for two nights. The host was very helpful on day 3 and suggested plugging into a 50 amp with a 30 amp adapter - that worked! Something with the 30 amp ground. (Wonder if this is common at this park as two other RVs had the same problem.) - Med

Very nice shaded every site all site level. Village is nice but closed Monday and Tuesday. If I had a bathroom/shower in my camper I would rate a lot higher, but I do not. The shower are very, very dirty, to the point my wife would not use it. - dwin a-frame

City is actually Jeisey, not Kincaid. Lots of space and large lots designed as a place for mobiles, their RV rentals are mostly long term. Nice lady owns the park. Free washer and dryer but no WiFi or cable TV. There are spaces with phone hook-ups. Near Springfield and Taylorville for doing genealogy stuff. - PDDeen
