Whitehall, Michigan
Reviewed 10 March 2017

All in all our stay was okay, but Double JJ seems to be really going downhill. We had a difficult time finding a place to park when we arrived, as all the spaces in the garage were taken and there were no available spaces in the adjacent parking lot, either. With a five year old and a one year old,...

I've wanted to visit this ranch for many years so my son and I finally made the plans. It's winter so we didn't expect to ride horses, but rather enjoy the facilities and water park. We've been to other ranches and, on a side note, suggest the Southern Cross Ranch as they really set the bar. The water park should...

We took the kids horseback riding. The staff was extremely courteous and very helpful. The trail was boring. We had three children with us and we were never informed at the time of booking that the youngest would have to pass a test before he could ride (he is seven). Thankfully he passed or our over an hour drive would...

For me this is a local business. I live about 3 miles away. There is so much availability on things to do it is amazing! The championship golf course is an outstanding layout and challenge. Great place for families or an outing!

Thanks so much for your kind words. We are very proud of the course...and so is its designer Arthur Hills; he told us so when he was here recently for the renaming of the course to 'Arthur Hills Thoroughbred Golf Course'. As you probably know, we are currently renovating the Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark as well as other elements of...

We went to Double JJ on the "off season" (after Labor Day). Pretty much everything was closed up except the golf course, the indoor water park was open weekends only, and only one restaurant was open. We went to ride and didn't care about the other amenities so that was fine for us. We stayed in the back 40 in...

Thank you for your comments. We're glad that you had such a great time here and that you found the accommodations and staff to your satisfaction. I must admit, I got a chuckle out of your remark about using your phone to find your way back from the trail ride; that's certainly a combination of the 'new and the old'....

We booked a site at the RV Park (Back 40). The good: it had full hook ups and clean, heated restrooms/showers. The bad: We paid the same price in October as they charge in the summer yet in the summer there is an outdoor pool & water slide available. Also, none of the Back 40 shops were opened the entire...

We stayed in a "suite" for a long weekend for a wedding nearby over a hotel since it had more space and more amenities, we had 4 adults and 3 kids in a 2 bed, 2 bath suite. Pros: - water park but it costs extra and only 2 slides were open - buffet breakfast, good spread, also cost extra...

We stayed in a large 2 bedroom, 3 bath condo, included a full kitchen, private entrance and balcony. The dinning hall in the main building had nice views of the property. Lots of activities for kids, including water park, farm animals, pony rides and a fun little western town with gift shop. Thought the staff needed more training on what...

I really wanted this place to be great. The day I went was during winter. The pool was packed. The water was on the chilly side. I struggled to even find a spot in the jacuzzi to warm up my kid. The place could use a freshening up as it was a bit dreary. I hope my experience was unusual...

Even though it's been a while since you stopped by, albany_dane, I still appreciate the feedback, and I'm sorry to hear you didn't have an amazing time. I know we can get a little busy during the winter, but it's odd to hear the water was chilly. We have painted the pool floor, the pool decks, and the walls since...

We visited on Labor day weekend and were pleasantly surprised to find so many activities around the campground. Our children love camping and the grounds were clean and well kept. We didn't make it to the Saturday night Rodeo but it will be on our to do list on our next visit.
