Welcome to the Double J, we are excited to share our new Riverside tent/RV listing! 

Of the 71 acres we own, about half is tillable and the other half is woods and pastures for our horses. Within that, there is a secluded 3-acre meadow nestled down along along a beautiful 1,200 foot stretch of the Zumbro River where we have 5 tent/RV campsites.  Each site (approximately 100' wide and 75' deep) is able to accommodate up to 8 people and more than one tent or RV.   Please note the maximum length of RVs is limited to 27' due to a dip in the road down to the camping area (see RV Accommodation details).  We provide and maintain an outhouse and keep the entire area mowed throughout the year.  All sites have good access to the river and lots of nice shade trees, perfect for hanging hammocks between!

Activities to be enjoyed include fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking and tubing (canoes/kayaks/tubes not included). 

Reserving adjacent sites, or all of the sites, makes for the ideal setting for a large family or group camp-out.  In order to prevent overcrowding, we do reserve the right to limit number of campers per site based on overall parties/campers in the camping area.  We will notify you of any potential limits prior to confirming your reservation.

We enjoy being able to share our property with others, and it is our desire to promote a safe, peaceful, family-friendly environment, therefore, please note, we do have a NO ALCOHOL policy. 

PLEASE NOTE:  To view details and pictures for each site, or to reserve a specific site be sure to use a desktop computer to access the Hipcamp website as their mobile app does not appear to provide that capability yet.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!  We look forward to being able to serve you!

We had a wonderful time camping with Julie and Jeff, they were so personable and made us feel very welcome. Being right next to the river was fantastic with the kiddos on the hot summer days. We were able to easily with room to spare fit two families with a tent and an rv in the large spaces. The fire flys in the evening was a great bonus

One of the better camping trips I have made in a while. The site was huge, all on the stream edge with acess. The hosts were excellent friendly and helpful.
The fishing was awesome. Bring your gear.
It's basic camping with one portopotty, no electric. But water is available.

Very clean and neat. Highly reccomend you go see for yourself

We had an absolutely amazing time staying on Jeff and Julie's land! The campsites are very large, and right on the water. We spent the weekend swimming in the river with lots of fish in there with us! The space has nice mature trees for hammocks, and provided plenty of shade. Jeff and Julie are very friendly and easy to talk to. The fire-pits are nice and big! The picnic tables are new and sturdy. Jeff has wood on site for a very reasonable price. We didn't see any mosquitos. It was a quick drive to the Goodhue Pioneer's state trail (a 6 mile paved rail-to-trail multi-use path). We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great spot with less hustle and bustle of a larger park.

We stayed at site 1 and it was very spacious. We loved how quiet and peaceful the campsite was, and some of us went swimming in the swimming hole, just a little ways up the river. Running water, firewood, and porta potty were convenient. Jeff was very clear in communication beforehand and provided good directions, and welcomed us when we arrived and checked in throughout our stay. Would definitely go again and bring some friends for a group camp with multiple sites! Very hospitable hosts as well.

Very spacious campsites right on the refreshing cool river. Our kids had tons of fun splashing around and floating on the inner tubes we brought. This was a great break from the noise and packed feeling of most campgrounds.
