Directions

From the North:

Traveling south out of Springfield on I-55, take exit 88.  At the top of the ramp go right (it is a continuous go lane). Follow the road around the curve, proceed to the left lane and then proceed thru the traffic light and straight to Double J Campground. We are about 2 miles from the exit.

Traveling east on I-72, follow expressway to the exit for I-55 south and follow directions under ‘from the north’  above. DO NOT use Il-4 at the western side of Springfield.

Traveling west on I-72, you will need to follow the signs to continue onto I-72 west which will bring you onto a surface road for about 1/4 mile before the entrance to I-72 west/I-55 south. The turn back onto I-55 will be a right turn. From this point follow the directions under ‘from the north’ above.

From the South: (2 options)

Traveling north on I-55 it is easiest to go up to Exit 88, take a left at the top of the ramp. Follow the road around the curve, through the traffic light and straight to Double J Campground. DO NOT get back onto southbound I-55. We are about 2 miles from the exit.

Traveling north on I-55 you can also use  Exit 83. Go left at the top of the ramp, then turn right onto Frazee Road (which changes names to Palm Road). This is the highway frontage road (there is a very small camping sign) just after you cross the expressway.  We are about 3 miles up the frontage road. Using this route is a little shorter. However, you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere when you get off the interstate and if you miss the turn, it is VERY hard to get back on track!

NOTE:  From anecdotal information gathered, numerous GPS devices take you to the back of our property (which isn’t helpful as you cannot access the park from the back) or to the marina or the church up the road or a cul de sac!….be sure to follow our directions!

                       Notice about Firewood and the Emerald Ash Borer

Just a friendly reminder that our policy still stands and will be enforced that there will be no outside firewood allowed to be brought into the campground.  This is in a continued effort to prevent the Ash Borer Beetle from infesting our trees.  Thank you for your support and cooperation.

To make sure you do not make the problem worse or put trees at risk, please buy your firewood locally at your camping destination. Most parks, including the Double J Campground, provide firewood for purchase, so take advantage of this service. Please make sure to burn all of your firewood on-site and do not leave any for other campers. Thank you for helping to preserve our forests and trees. You MAY NOT bring in firewood that has been harvested from area properties or pallets.

Forests are being threatened and you can help protect them. The emerald ash borer (EAB) is an exotic beetle that has killed millions of ash trees in the northern, central, and eastern regions of the US, including Illinois. The spread of EAB and other destructive forest pests has been directly related to the movement of wood products, especially firewood. Illinois is included in the federal EAB quarantine that restricts the movement of ash wood and hardwood firewood. More information about EAB and the quarantine can be found on the Internet.
