Older campground in very good repair. New restrooms, large pavilion. Roads fine gravel and well-maintained. Cable in all sites. Sites mainly pull-thru and well-spaced, angled for easy access. Some long-term and seasonal sites, tent area. Walking trail. Staff works hard to maintain appearance of park. Usual camp store items but no souvenirs despite fact that campground is on Historic Route 66. Many Abraham and Mary Lincoln attractions in and around Springfield. Would return.

We are new RVers (traveling in a small Airstream B-190 with a dingy tow) and have stayed only at a couple of parks so far. Double J Campground is definitely our favorite. We travel with small dogs and really liked the two dog walk parks and all the grassy areas. The entire campground was well shaded with beautiful mature trees. Amenities provided were well thought out, meticulously maintained and creative, like the jumbo checkers set. Offering a pool, a play set, miniature golf, a walking trail and multiple games, this is truly a park families with kids will enjoy. We were sorry we had not allowed enough time for showers since Double J’s were so clean. Also the owners were so friendly and helpful. We’ll be back next year!

We needed a site for our trailer near Springfield while attending a family Thanksgiving event. We landed at Double J ... and are sure glad we did. Easy to find. Easy to get into Springfield. Clean, magnificently maintained, quiet (except for a bit of highway noise). Lots of amenities that we didn't get to try out because of the season, but this looks like a great place for family camping while visiting the Lincoln sites.

Campground if very well maintained and restroom/showers are extremely clean. Nice long pull through sites and roads are easy to maneuver. Close to highway for easy on and off. Workers are very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again if we are ever back in the Springfield, IL area.

Very nice and clean campground. There are activities there for all - swimming, miniature golf, playgrounds for the kids activities for adults. All the sites are pull-thru, they do have sites available in the winter and Springfield IL is minutes away. We will definitely be staying here again - it's only an hour and a half drive from St. Louis.

We stayed in June of 2017 and found the campground and facilities wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wi fi was pretty good and the park is beautiful. Very accommodating to pets as well. We wanted to see everything in Springfield and around there and we darn near did. So, we will definitely have to go back and we will definitely stay at the Double J.

Owners and workers were all so nice, so helpful! Clean, well kept campground with the nicest campground bathrooms/shower rooms I've ever seen! Easy access to Springfield. Nice game and playground area, pool was nice & clean. Scoped out other nearby campgrounds as we were out & about - glad we stayed here!!! Even though it's close to I-55, it was not noisy! Will definitely stay here again!

With the close proximity of I-55, you can hear a lot of truck traffic throughout the night. All other aspects of the facility meet expectations except for the cable upgrade that was in progress.

We stayed 1 night while traveling through the area. The park is an easy short drive from I-55 (Exit 88) along a paved road that was formerly Route 66. A double sided sheet of paper contained the rules & regulations. The check in area required some tight maneuvering to get into the park. There was an escort to the site. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were narrow. The pull through sites were generally long enough for larger coaches to remain attached to their toads. We barely fit into the site with our combination but part of the problem was created by the angle of the adjacent site parking pad. Our site was the only site that had this strange angle combination with the adjacent site. The angles caused a very tight clearance on our departure. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were generally mid site. There was an outside table and fire ring. Part of the park has an extensive tree canopy and another portion is open to the sky. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. The park information showed 12 cable channels and 12 broadcast channels. There were some long term residents. Only dumpster was near the front of the park. The provided WiFi was adequate. Didn’t try the NET10 phone so don’t know about cell phone reception. The designated pet areas were not fenced but there they were grassy and sufficient size. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There was a bag dispenser and cans to collect waste at the pet area. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was a storm shelter with earthen burms rather than below ground. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room. We would stay here again if passing through the area. TIP: Close enough to Springfield to visit the tourist sites there.

Again,Good Sam rating is way too high. I've been at some 10 parks, and this is not comparable. Sites are tight - they claim they are big enough but utilties are placed so that you can't reach them without being in middle of site, hence your tow vehicle won't fit. If you park with a wheel even touching the grass they fuss at you. They seem to have an issue with their grass, which is not all that nice. You can't put a mat or even a satellite dish on it. There is therefore no place to sit in a chair except in a couple of feet on the gravel right up against your RV since there is no patio area. The rules seem to threaten you with eviction and arrest if you violate any of them. Not too customer friendly.

The campground was very nice. Well kept. the personal where very helpful and courteous and a pleasure to talk to. bath/showers were very nice and clean. didn't use the laundry but did look in and was very nice. only 3 washers and dryers but were clean. Sites were gravel but was able to level camper easily. hook ups were easy and cable television reception was good. Needed some help with a problem with my camper and were very helpful , Would recommend this campground for overnight or extended stay. May even just go up there for a couple of days just for the heck of it.

The campground is large and fills up quickly. Has great amenities - pool, playground, dog walk, etc. The owners do have many rules that you need to follow - if you don't follow them you will NOT enjoy your visit.

Nice campground, friendly staff, but it's 100 yds off I55 and traffic at night makes it hard to get good night sleep.

This is a nice park. it might be a place for a multi-day stay, if nearby attractions appeal to you. I would give it 5 stars if it had concrete pads for the RV.

Beautiful place, great/helpful staff, nice amenities, good location for visiting the historical sites in town. Very close to busy/noisy highway so plan on leaving a fan running for some white noise. I would stay again!

The campground is very well shaded, the pull through sites are clean and complete, the staff was very kind and friendly. The play areas included several games for all ages as well as two pavilions; the store is not extensive in its inventory, but it carries the essentials. The facility is a very welcome RV oasis.
