Rules & Guidelines

So this page has all the necessary evils which ought to be common sense.

Your site includes one car/truck and one camper/tent, 2 adults, and 3 children under 18. The site selected is long enough for your camper and vehicle in line.

EXTRA FEES: If you arrive early, stay late, have additional people or vehicles, there will be an additional charge made to your electronic payment. ($5 per hour, $5 per person per night, $5 per vehicle per night.)  CHECK OUT IS BY NOON.

 NO driving or parking on the grass or adjacent sites.


Mats and carpets are permitted on gravel only.

All vehicles on campground property must display a parking pass. Vehicles not displaying a pass in the windshield may be removed from the property.

When visitors arrive they must check-in at registration, receive a visitor pass, and parking instructions. We do not charge for day visitors. Visitors must park in the visitor lot. We reserve the right to limit visitors. Overnight visitors are charged a fee. Overnight visitors will be given parking instructions. NOBODY except registered campers (including overnight guests) may drive into the campground. Anyone trying to ‘run the gate’ WILL be charged for any damages as well as a fee.

Registered Campers with extra vehicles must park the extra vehicle in the spot defined when checking in. A motorcycle or trailer of any type is considered an extra vehicle and may only be kept on site if space permits parking on the gravel. Parking on the grass is not permitted. Parking on open sites is not permitted.

Pets must be attended and leashed at all times when outside the RV. Please walk dogs in one of the three dog walk areas. There are receptacles for doggy waste bags in these areas. Dogs may not run free in the back fields or anywhere else on the premises.

NO FIREWOOD may be brought into the Double J Campground. Please keep all campfires inside the provided fire rings. Do not move the ring or acquire one from another site.

Garbage should be bagged, tied, and placed into dumpsters near the Welcome Center. Burning trash is prohibited.

Absolutely every person on the pool deck must be accompanied by an adult 18 years of age or older and must have a swim band from the Double J Campground.

Visitors of campers who decide to go swimming or be on the pool deck must obtain the $5.00 daily swim band.   (Campers always swim free but must wear a swim band.)

As a reminder, please be courteous and do not walk through occupied campsites.

Internet Access The wireless network “doublej” is available to all campers without an access code, password, or additional charge. Our Wi-Fi is not designed for heavy usage. It is more for checking e-mail/Facebook, finding your next stop, etc. We recommend having your own hot spot  for any heavier usage. If you exceed usage limits, your access will be blocked.

STORM SHELTERS ARE LOCATED IN THE FRONT RESTROOMS AND LAUNDRY. While you are welcome to bring your pets for shelter, they must be on leash or crated and only in the laundry room.

Quiet Hours: Please be respectful of other campers and maintain quite hours from 9:00 pm until 7:00 am.  Visitors should leave by 9:00pm.

Check-Out time is Noon. We ask all campers to depart by noon. It is not necessary to stop in at the office when leaving. Simply deposit your trash in the dumpster on your way out. If you are not able to leave by noon, please talk to the office about availability. A $5.00 per hour late departure fee may be applied.

Extending your Stay. We thank you for staying with us at the Double J Campground. If you decide to extend your stay, please see us in the office. We will do our best to keep you on your current site. We wish we could guarantee this, but sometimes it is necessary to move you to a new site when you’re extending.

For your safety and preservation of the campground, we ask you to abide by the following:

•    Regulations require only one sleeping unit per site (a second unit or tent may NOT be added to the site).

•    Satellite poles may not be driven into the ground. Satellites may be on a tri-pod on the gravel at your site. Satellites MAY NOT be installed on the grass.

•    Clothes lines are not permitted in private parks. Fences, including dog fences and pens are also not permitted.

•   Personal golf carts and motorized vehicles are NOT permitted in the park. This policy prohibits the use of ‘toy’ electric two wheeled scooters as well as any battery operated ‘cars’ by children or adults. This is due to insurance regulations, so please abide by this request.

•    Please DO NOT wash your RV or vehicle at the site. RV washing is only permitted at the Double J Campground with prior permission from the Welcome Center staff and by the approved company.

•    We encourage everyone when riding a bicycle on the camp grounds to wear a helmet. As a courtesy to fellow campers, we ask that bike riders not ride through other’s sites.

•   Please walk pets in one of the three designated Pet Walking areas and please clean up after your pet. Bags and trash cans are provided in the areas. Pets must be on leash at all times when outside your RV. Pets may not be left unattended outside camping units at any time.

•    Fireworks are not permitted in the park. Local laws regarding this will be enforced.

•    Illinois regulations require a secure air tight sewer connection and are available for purchase in the Welcome Center.

•    This campground assumes no responsibility for accidents, injuries or losses from any causes.

•    This campground reserves the right to cancel any scheduled or unscheduled activities. We also reserve the right to request any camper or visitor to discontinue any activities that are considered inappropriate.

•   Failure to follow campground rules, instruction by employees, workers or the owners; public intoxication; distribution or illegal use of drugs or alcohol; abusive or disruptive behavior or language all constitute reasons you may be asked to leave the campground immediately. No refund will be given. Possible criminal charges and liability for damages including full restitution for losses to campground may also result from such actions.

•   This campground is on private property. The owners, workers and employees maintain the right to ask anyone to leave the property immediately. Failure to comply with the request constitutes trespassing and will result in an eviction and prosecution by the police.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We simply ask for the courtesy of a phone call if your plans change. We do not run electronic payments until the morning of your scheduled arrival. If you fail to call us, we will not void the charge to your card. There are also NO REFUNDS on camping fees. If you think you will be hare for 3 or maybe 4 days, let us know and we will only charge for the first 3 days but reserve the site in case you want to extend. There is no obligation except to keep us in ‘the loop’.
