Very nice horse campground! Dave and Rocky run a first class operation and are very customer oriented. Dave has done a lot of work in upgrading this facility in a short few years. If security is a concern to you, you need not worry at this camp. Dave has installed an automatic entry/exit gate and the camp is at the end of a dead end road so you don't have to worry about drive through traffic. Bath and shower facilities are clean and comfortable and you will enjoy lots of hot water! Unfortunately, we were plagued by rain for about half of our stay but there are lots of non-riding things to do and see in this part of Kentucky. We did get in a couple of great days of riding and you can ride directly out of Double J into the national park. The camp is dog friendly as long as you keep your pooch under control. Rocky will sell you farm fresh eggs if you need them!

We had our first trip to Double J this past weekend for our group of four trailers and found the campground to be very nice. The campground can accommodate around 22 trailers and the layout is roomy enough so that you are not on top of each other with the sites level enough that one board either way would take care of the trailer. The main sites all have electric and water at each one. The covered stalls are excellent (14’x14’) and have shavings supplied, but they also have 12’x12’ pins outside for a cheaper price….. The campground was full for the holiday weekend and with only 2 bath houses in the main campground you may have had to wait a few minutes to shower but they were nice and clean. Saturday night they had a band playing and provided several other activities during the weekend. The owners were very nice to us and came around at least 2 or 3 times a day to ask if we needed Ice or wood. When we did need ice they brought it right to the trailer so you could pay at your site. Overall I would definitely stay at this campground again. The trail riding in Mammoth Cave Park is very nice and the trails are well marked and easy to follow. Double J has access directly out of the back of the campground onto Collie Ridge with about a 30 min walk to the first cut off trail. My only negative feedback would be that after 3 days of riding I did get tired of the Collie Ridge trip in and out but would not let that stop me from coming back. In closing, I would recommend staying at Double J for the camping and riding
