The park is all dirt and pretty old. We were not allowed to participate in the Christmas in July activities with the children unless we paid extra. We were allowed up to five people - but only 3 of us adults over 62. We would have enjoyed being with our nieces and nephews. That was the purpose of camping next to each other. This campground is not for our family. We will choose another next time. - BigSisy

We stayed on a private lot on the property with full hookups. The owners of the park are relatively new (3 years) and have made huge improvements in the facilities. This was once a Western Horizon Park, now much improved. Our conversation with the new owners indicates they are proud of the things they have achieved, the condition of the facilities and the additions they have made. We enjoyed our stay here and would return when in the area. - SilverBear

This park has had some bad reviews in the past. The dusty roads have been fixed with a spray. The ant hills are still here, but don't see a lot of ants. We put stuff out and it is gone, so it is working. We found a site that has full hookups and still can get satellite with a portable dish. Lots of trees. Power & water are fine. Very few people here during the week. Office staff is all business, but OK. Workers are friendly and helpful. Park is not near any large city, so we probably wouldn't stay here again. Grand Rapids and Muskegon are 50 miles away. - eclp64

Park was clean and the staff could not have been nicer! Lots are spacious with sunny/open exposures. Site surface is gravel, dirt and sand. Features a fire ring and picnic table.
Complaint is that there is no TV signal (5 channels), no Wi Fi even at the store where there was supposed to be some, and no cell phone signal.
In this day and age I feel that a campground that is charging a pretty good price should have at least TV and wi fi. - User3353

Many different sites available. Electric and water are popular. Good level full hookups. Wi-Fi very weak and sites are controlled to limit traffic. Had to use smart phone for email and trip planning. Hiking trails are good, and canoe/kayak/tube livery is close and excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. A well established park (I used it in 1978) and they continue with improvements and new sites. - Hornman

We really enjoyed this park. We had a site right on the creek and kids played in it all day long. They also have a decent sized pool, playground, basketball court, fishing lake nearby, small arcade, and small camp store. It is a large campground that is spread out into smaller sections which makes it seem smaller than what it actually is. Our site by the creek was quiet. There is quite a bit of shade and nice sized lots. It is 15 minutes away from Lake Michigan. Montague and Whitehall are both very nice, quaint towns. It is on White River so if you like to canoe it would be perfect. - focchick

It has taken me a few days to get all of my thoughts together about the Double JJ Ranch. I almost didn’t want to post to keep this gem all to myself but I feel like it needs a little recognition. Years ago I spent a girls weekend at the ranch with my Girl Scout troops. The ranch had just changed ownership and the potential was there but leadership was lacking. No one answered questions with the same answer, so it was a constant run-around.
I have to say, after our long weekend, they are SO close to nailing it. Still had a few questions not able to be answered about different areas of the ranch, but it didn’t put a damper on anything.
I reserved a full hookup site with no indoor water park passes (it’s July kids, we aren’t hanging out inside). Our site backed up to the woods. It was very roomy and close to the “Back Forty,” which includes the barn, outdoor pools, ice cream parlor, games, playground, etc. The outdoor pools and slide were perfect for the hot July days we were there.
Our splurges for the weekend included the girls and I reserving a really nice hour long trail ride while Jim and Mikey played the Thoroughbred golf course. Jim’s take on the course was this; the course was very fair and challenging, the greens rolled true and quick. With a little work it could be a championship caliber track.
Two of the nights we took the very convenient shuttle up to the front part of the property for putt-putt, the arcade, bull riding and karaoke. The only downside was we would have loved having the saloon in the Back Forty open for the old western feel.
We saw the barn set up for a pretty rustic wedding and watched the wedding party head off to yet another area of the property.
We cruised the grounds to see the cabins, log homes, and condos to rent. Wanted to check out all accommodations for a future trip with all sorts of friends and family all liking different kids of “glamping.” - Natalieagall

This campground is either very good or very bad. The good: There is much to do. There is a modestly priced and very nice indoor water park, outside horse back riding, a weekly rodeo and pig roast, several restaurants, and a beautiful golf course. The bad: The restaurants and golf are quite expensive. And, the campground is heavily wooded, making it very difficult for a 43 foot RV like mine to maneuver. There is no WIFI and no cable. It is impossible to get satellite reception. Also, the cell phone coverage is poor. And, most of all, the trees need to be trimmed. It is very frustrating and maddening to scratch up your RV just getting in and out of a campground. This place is so close to being great. There is even a a flat open spot just outside the campground, that could be set up for higher end RV's. If Double JJ wants to bring in higher end campers for their expensive golf and food, they need some higher end camping spots. Until then, it is unlikely we will return. - sse

Dusty? Yes. Overpriced? Yes. But the Double JJ is a fun place to stay, and the CG is quite attractive, with lots of shade for most sites (helpful in the summer) Those trees do pose a hazard for larger rigs, though, especially threading through the narrow roads in the campground. Very family-friendly place, the western theme is fun, and there is lots to do. The pool area next to the campground is beautiful, with several fun pools, none too deep, and an awesome waterslide. Horseback riding is plentiful (albeit extra charge), and the rodeo (also extra) is fun. Would consider going again, perhaps for a special occasion. - PokyRVer

It has been a few years since our last review. This park keeps getting better, the owners are always friendly and helpful. They keep improving the park. A modern dump station was recently added. There are plans to add more electric sites in the near future. The park is large and easy to navigate. The east and west side of the lake are rustic sites that are usually available. They allow generators to be run day and night, even the big box type that some people throw in the back of a truck. This is a blessing and a curse depending on the spacing. Most of the time the spacing is big enough where loud generators. We ran our generator day and night due to the heat. All the sites around the lake allow for swimming access. The owners allow you to pull in front ways, back ways and side ways. We live about 45 minutes away. This is now our go to last minute camp ground due to availability. The rustic sites are always available, with the solar/generator we are self contained when needed. T-Mobile and Sprint are spotty and slow. ATT is full speed LTE. - TeamErnzer

This very large campground is a hidden gem. There are limited sites with power so make sure to have a reservation if you need one. I was a little hesitant when I heard that the campground only had port-a-potties. I will say that these were amazingly clean and odor free. They have these placed every 500 feet around the campground. The roads are dirt and it can get a little dusty at times but it never bothered us at our site. Big rigs will have no problems navigating the campground. Many of the sites are right on the water and the kids were able to swim right from our site. There is a beautiful sandbar with swim platforms in the middle of the lake. We did not fish but our site neighbor did and was able to catch a large bass every second or third cast. The owner and his wife were very friendly and made rounds regularly. It is clear that they take pride in the park and keep it well maintained. We did not receive a WiFi signal (nor did we ask about it) but we had strong AT&T 4g so it wasn't an issue. - TeamErnzer

We stayed one night mid-week in September. There are only a few sites with water & electric. Many sites have electric and most are dry camping only. All sites have a view of the lake.
It's located right off of Hwy 31 but there is a lengthy dirt road to the main gate. It's still big-rig friendly but maybe not for the high-end motor coaches.
Owner is friendly, helpful and made his rounds in the evening. Great rate for PA members. - Craig H

NO SEWER (only long time seasonal residents have sewer) This park is not big-rig friendly. Power pole shared by neighbor. Very close to right side of RV (used extensions to reach electric on right of RV). Had to step over neighbors cord when entering and exiting site. The park map in a fantasy. Roads are dirt. Stay here only in small RV. Very disappointed. - Scooter-2014

This is an old run down park. Dirt roads and dirt sites. Bugs everywhere. Mosquitoes during the day and evening. Couldn't sit outside all week. Ants everywhere. Don't see why anyone would give this park a good rating. We had site #79 as mgr. said was 70 feet long. We could barely get our 35 ft. trailer in it. No swimming pool and the beach is about 20 feet wide with seaweed all around. Be sure to carry an extra 30 foot electrical as the connections are between each pair of sites. WiFi was sooo slow we gave up. Will never stay here again. - Bill B

Nice for weekend trip, some what tight for parking 40' MH. Had to ask neighbor across from us to move truck for us to get in. Electric was n wrong side in our site, and water required two hoses to reach. Not much to do in area, one or two days tops for things to do. - nomore3putts

Wonderfully located and very quiet, River Farm is an ideal location for relaxing, fishing, boating or just strolling through the nearby towns of Pentwater, Hart, Silver Lake and state parks. It is near I-31 but far enough away to not be bothered by traffic noise or trains. Roads and sites are gravel and ample for big rigs with slideouts and awnings. Electric and water are excellent. Only a few sites are good for satellite TV reception but local TV has only 2 stations which breakup frequently. Owner lives on premises and is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. - loneranger
