I'm reading a book where the protagonist, who is an adult and not adverse to swearing , says "Double crap!" This has also shown up in another book I've read before. Do people actually say this or is it just bad writing?

That is the truth!
It makes me a little annoyed, honestly, and how it was used made the scene feel a little cheap. But it's good to know people have said it in real life so it's not completely bad writing.
I'm sorry you had to encounter that in a written piece. Perhaps the author wanted to make the expletive more forceful.
