Double JJ is the perfect place to plan your next camping trip to Rothbury Michigan. The Back Forty Campground & RV Park is located in the heart of our family-oriented “Old West” town. Perfect for getting outdoors but having all the amenities of Double JJ Resort. Enjoy the championship golf course, indoor water park, and horseback riding trails just minutes from the campground. Open from April to November, subject to weather; you have plenty of time to pack up your camping gear and enjoy the great outdoors. Take a look at our camping checklist and get ready for the best camping you have ever experienced.
Whether you are decided to bring your RV or stay in a tent, we make sure that you are covered. If you bring an RV choose from the campsite setup options; full hook-up (water, electric, sewer), water and electric, or primitive. If you decide to stay in a tent, we have modern amenities that will make your stay easy. We offer 20 to 50 amp service, a modern bathhouse, laundry, dump station, firewood for sale, picnic tables, and fire rings. All you have to do is bring your gear, and you will have everything you need to set up, lay back, and look at the stars.
First thing first, your tent or RV. Make sure before leaving that you have everything you need for setting up your campsite. Do you have all the poles? Do you have the rain guard? You do not want to arrive and realize you forgot the essentials for setting up. Then make sure you have everything you need for sleeping. Bring a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillows, and an extra tarp just in case there is heavy rain.
Next figure out what you will be eating. Are you going to eat at the on-site restaurant or are you going to make food over the fire? Once you have your food list, figure out what you will need to make the food. Bring pots and pans, roasting sticks for hot dogs or s’mores, and plates and eating utensils. Pack a cooler with ice to keep everything cold until you are ready to cook.
Now it is time to pack the car with the extras. Bring lawn chairs to sit by the fire pit. A flashlight will come in handy when the sun sets. Matches and a lighter are necessities to get that fire burning. Suntan lotion, bug spray, and a first aid kit are a good thing to have on hand. If you have a dog, bring its least, food and dishes. The campground and RV site are pet-friendly, so your four-legged friend can join in on the fun!
Just throw your clothes in a bag, and you are ready to head to Double JJ Resort. Bring your rain jacket and umbrella because nature loves irony. If you do not prepare for rain, you can be sure that it will rain. However, do not worry even if it does rain, there are plenty of activities inside at Double JJ to keep you occupied. Bring layers to keep you warm at night and cool during the day. Pack a swimsuit if you want to jump in The Back Forty Swimming Hole, with an activity pool, zero-depth entry pool, and a 150-foot waterslide. Bring clothes for horseback riding or pony rides such as closed toes shoes. Closed toed shoes will also come in handy if you want to play a game of horseshoes, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and tetherball or if you join the kids on the playground.
Double JJ has everything you and your family could need to make memories on your camping trip. With plenty of amenities, there will be no sitting around saying ‘I am bored.’ The comfortable campsites will give you room to spread out and set up your home away from home. Whether you choose to hook up your camper or build a tent we are here to help make this year’s camping trip to Rothbury Michigan the best yet!
