Sep 2018 - $42.00
Overnite stay. The out of stater price was an $11 fee plus $31/ nite so price wise $42, much over priced. The north cg was itself a nice paved loop with gravel mostly level sites well spaced with electric post at back side of site. Lots of nice grass and trees. Only 2 water non threaded water faucets. Didn't use the bath house. A short trail to a lake inlet. A close by train track. There is a dump between the 2 campgrounds we didn't use. We drove through the south cg long loop which is a distance away and is mostly small short sites for tents, without electricity. The middle of the south loop is basically a swamp. - 210jem

The 322 arce park is located on the Mississippi backwaters and has a boat launch and separate canoe/kayak launch. There are also very reasonably priced canoe/kayak rentals. The park also includes a nature center, 2 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, a playground, canoe/kayak trail and excellent fishing opportunities. There are 3 campgrounds with a total of 65 sites. There are 22 sites with electric, all are in the north campground where the shower building is also located. The south campground has 35 sites, 18 on the water and 10 with water access across the road. The only downside is that there is a very active rail line running close to the park. You can actually feel the ground vibrate in the north campground. However, we stay here every Memorial day and after a while you get used to the rail traffic. - Snayte

Rate seemed fair for water and electric only. Site was big and lake side; there were no unexpected extra fees.
A little confusing finding site; explanation was rushed and confusing. - Travelor

We were satisfied with the park. The gentleman at the information desk at the beginning was polite, and check in was quick, since I had called earlier in the week. The layout/numbering of the sites was a little confusing. Due to looking online, I had a general idea where my site was, but the signs were very small, and looked like they were still in the process of restructuring. When I initially hooked up my electricity, i wasn't sure if I was using the right box, it had my site number, but also had two other site numbers. The water hookup was similarly confusing. I ended up disconnecting a permanent residents pressure washer gun (I did reconnect it when I left) and hooking in that way. We weren't sure if the lines were owned by the campground or the other residents.
The site was moderately clean. There was some small litter, but nothing that upset us too much. The site was very large in width, which was nice. Having a picnic table and fire pit was also good. The WiFi had recently been boosted and reached our site on the river, good enough to watch Netflix when going to bed (a few buffering breaks).
Our biggest complaint would be noise. The train rolls through pretty frequently. Not only that, but I don't believe there is a "quiet time," since some of our neighbors were up pretty late partying.
We weren't overly impressed with the grounds, and aren't likely to stay again, but wouldn't be opposed if we were in the area and needed someplace to stay for the night while traveling through. - joshnichols84

The sites are level, grassy, each with a picnic table and fire ring. Lots of trees and free Wi-Fi, fast enough at times to stream NETFLIX and HBO. As people noted, the water is a large hose run to all sites, with splitters. When everyone is using the water, the pressure can be low, so we simply filled our tank and used our pump. As for being potable, I'm sure it was, but we NEVER drink water out of our tanks anyway. I'm not sure why a person would think that the flooding would affect the safety of the water any more than the fact that the main hydrants are in the ground to start with? You are either in the first row, only 20' or so from the secondary channel of the Mississippi River, or in one of the two next rows, which still put you with a pretty doggone good view for $25 a night! Yes, there are plenty of permanent RVs, locals who spend their weekends, but the place has always been kept up well over the years. We probably come every 5-7 years and have never seen it with overgrown vegetation. Perhaps flooding would be affecting maintenance occasionally, but as a rule, they were pretty much mowing somewhere the entire week we were there this time. As for picking your own site, it was busy when we were there and I had reserved ahead of time, so I didn't have that option. OTOH, how can you complain that you get to pick which site you want? Seriously, I'd sure have picked a heck of a lot of different sites than I've been shoved into at other parks. This place had extensive, and I mean EXTENSIVE, playground areas off to the side. It was and always has been one of our favorite places to stay when we are in the area and I would rather hook up to a garden hose than pay another $10-15 a night to only have the short hose (still a hose!) between a hydrant and my rig. The campground closes to outsiders at 10:00 p.m. and was quiet for the entire week we were there. - chixs

This was a repeat stay for me to celebrate the 4th of July and reconnect will dear friends. I love this place!! It feels like home and everyone like family. Spent 6 years on a permanent site myself at another campground. I never felt welcomed like I do here. The pool was sparkling clean and very refreshing after a hot, humid day. The restrooms and laundry were also clean, organized and comfortable. I'll be back next year!!! - Waff

We have stayed here many times over the past 4 years. I was shocked at the recent review that gave them 1 star. Granted in May when the leaves on the trees have not yet come in, the train is a little loud on the one end of the campground, but it isn't that bad. Bathrooms are by far the cleanest ones I have been in. The pool is always clean and they are very attentive to cleanliness. There is one porta-potty by the large cabin that is cleaner than most peoples bathroom at home. Great seasonal and super nice owners. Small, clean and family orientated campground. - Robyn M H

Very friendly campground owners/ hosts. Nice older campground with tight spaces and lots of trees. Tough to get satellite to work but I did find a spot to make it happen. Sites are mainly parking on the grass but easy to navigate and utilities are placed right. Has playground for the kids. They do many park activities like Bingo etc. Small store and friendly people. Would stay again if in the area. - Johnny xxxxx

The weekend we were here was a very busy weekend, but was quiet at the same time. The campsites were of decent size, but giving you privacy from others. Shower/bathroom houses were old, but were kept clean. The ladies room ran out of toweling and hand soap, and some people left their children's dirty diapers on the floor next to the trash bins, which has was rather unpleasant. On a good note, there are plenty of walking trails and scenic areas for picture taking. Canoe rentals are available to paddle around on the Mississippi plus there is swimming allowed (but no beach front) as one would dive in around the boat docks. Beautiful sunsets. One final statement - the speed limit is 10mph and drivers need to slow down as there are a lot of curves going around the campsites and children playing or riding bikes, and some drivers come flying around the curves much higher faster than they should. Overall, I will stay here again. Lot spacing is nearby and mostly shady. Site surface is gravel, dirt and grass; featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - SerenityFix

This is a beautiful park on the Mississippi River. Our campsite was partially shaded with a picnic bench and a fire ring. There are two nice bathrooms with shower facilities and several pit toilets throughout the campgrounds. There are several hiking and biking trails as well as canoe and kayak rentals. The roads are paved and sites are easy to access. This is definitely a park we will return to in the near future. - User3016

Bathrooms were very dirty. The men's stunk to high heaven! Only had two shower houses and they were too far to walk to and dirty as well. There was a wasp nest up in the electrical box that was was decent size with a wasp on it. Was not an enjoyable experience. Won't be back. - Lisa Hagee

Saying we stayed there is a loose statement. We arrived at 6:30 pm on Friday. Upon checking in we were told that the site we had booked was flooded and they have moved us to another site. Our first concern was will it fit our 32 foot motor home and a jeep. They assured us there was plenty of room. So we paid for our site based on their honesty. We went to our site to find the fire pit under water and the rest of the site shall we say very wet but not under water. I think we would have fit but our unit would be right at the road. For us the fire pit is a huge deal since we do ALL our meals over the fire. So with that being said we went back up to the office to explain that that site was unacceptable. The owner laughed at us when we asked if we could have a refund. He said they moved us to an acceptable site. ( by who's standards) We asked why they didn't call us ahead of time as to the situation? Again he said we did you didn't answer your phone? There was no message left on our three phones. This was by far the worst customer service we have received in the 25 years of camping. With that we left with a 100.00 camping charge on our charge card. And the owner making a gesture of playing a fiddle and calling my husband ass for asking for a refund. I can say the wifi doesn't work by the office and verizon doesn't have cell service there. The reason I do know that is, I had to wait to get out of the bluffs to call our charge card and file a claim against them. And hour and half later we were back at home. Not the best camping weekend. - rbtbski

Lazy D Campground was the only option available to me due to me not trying to make reservations until one month prior to Memorial Day weekend. With that being said, the customer service on the telephone was very helpful, she gave me great directions on how I should approach the campground with my trailer (34' total length) and the site I would be staying in.
Our biggest cons about the park were the proximity to the highway. There was a lot of road noise. This wasn't much of a problem though, because when the air conditioning was running, we couldn't hear it much. However, it was still noticeable. Another major con was the dump site. There was only one dump site, and it was located by the office, which isn't normally a bad thing. However, being on the half of the grounds across the river, there was no access to the dump without exiting and trying to re-enter the grounds, and that is a lot of tight turns with a 34' trailer. We ended up using an off-site dump-station. They did claim to have WiFi, but we were unable to pick it up in our location. I had great AT&T service, but my neighbors had no cell service with Verizon.
The pros were, in direct conflict with some of the other reviews, the staff was very friendly. They have a lot of amenities: a heated pool, a bouncing pillow, rental tricycles, tube rentals for the river, and so on. On Sunday, they even had free ice cream, which was very nice!
Overall, Lazy D gets a good review. We wouldn't be opposed to staying here again, but we will probably continue to explore other grounds in the area. - joshnichols84

We have stayed here several times over the years. Lazy D has a swimming pool, has campsites right on the Whitewater river, and has water available at each site. There is enormous variation between campsites at Lazy D so it's of vital importance that you understand what you're getting when making a reservation. Some sites have river frontage while most do not. Some are shallow. Some are on paved loops while others are on gravel. Due to the road layout the sites near the office are high traffic. Most sites are grass although a few had a gravel parking pad. Some sites, though large enough for big rigs, have tight turns on the access roads, while others have good accessibility. Some of the sites are set up with a shared water and electric pedestal serving two adjacent sites, which means that it's on the wrong side of the RV for one of the sites. If you're in one of these you'll need a longer electric cord and water hose than usual. There are a substantial number of seasonal sites, more than shown on the map. These sites are well maintained and occupied by rigs in good condition. Few of the sites are 50a, mostly just seasonal ones. We had a 30a site. Our loop lost power when the loop breaker tripped even though the loop was not fully occupied. Voltage dropped below 110 a couple of times. It appears to me that the campground, or at least parts of it, don't really have enough electricity by present-day standards. Management was friendly and organized. Most of the campground has tree cover. The campground has a history of flooding and there is some risk of flash floods. We stayed hitched up so that we could leave quickly if necessary. - Jammer

Camped in new (Minneiska) campground. Sites are very spacious and all with 50 AMP. Water and Dump available across the street in the original park. Very quiet location with minimal traffic on main road. Elba (3M)and St Charles (7m) nearby. Many hiking trails of various degrees of difficulty/length. Good fishing in the fast blowing Whitewater river. No TV, Cell, or wifi. (Use park wifi at office). St Charles has everything you need,7 miles away. A number of sites are pull through style. Several new bath houses and picnic shelters. Beautiful views of bluffs. - Todd Fogelberg

Once again, the park naturalists exceeded our expectations with two wonderful presentations on snakes and Eagles. As noted in previous posts, there is no phone reception, but you can get WiFi in the office or parking lot. The park rangers recommend that people do not hike alone due to no phone service. The park is always full and people seem to camp with friends or in groups. Just be advised that there are a lot of unsupervised children running around while their parents are consuming adult beverages. We were fortunate enough to hear "on top of spaghetti" 200 times and then the kid woke up singing it all over again. We got a laugh out of that song. We thoroughly enjoyed the park, the presentations, lack of mosquitoes and the lively atmosphere. If you are looking for quiet, come here during the week. We thought the bathrooms were fine, didn't have dump station issues, but sites seem a bit short. Most importantly, this park is expanding across the road. There will be 30 or more electric campsites, not sure of non-electric. Trees are young, so shade will be limited. Check the website next year for more information. - brendajoro

A nice Minnesota State Park. We stayed just for an overnight. Price included an 8.50 reservation fee. Some of the sites have electric and others do not. The site we were in had a tree just off the side of the trailer so we were unable to use our awning. Overall it was a nice park and we would go back. - PackerFanRick

This is a large, private campground with over 200 sites, many of which are seasonal. The sites are grassy and shaded. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. They aren't very wide so we were close to our neighbors. The restrooms were not maintained. The men room had a paper towel jam all day until we notified the owner. He fixed the paper towels, but still the restroom went without soap for over 24 hours. The floors were muddy and did not get mopped all weekend. There was a campground employee mowing the lawn on Sunday morning for about an hour, which was quite noisy. The owner left the office for a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon, leaving a group of four kids, about age 12, in charge behind the desk. Unfortunately the kids did not know much about running the campground and weren't able to answer any of our questions. - Juniper94

No hookups. New, clean restrooms/showers. Nice trails & look out sites. Very nice fall colors in October. Requires $7/day or $25/year vehicle permit. Off the beaten path for very quiet private camping. Folage shielded sites for privacy. - dakotaken

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Everywhere was full so we opted for here. We had a pull thru all grass and mud, but not long enough to park our truck. We had to park the truck on the side. Most of the park is full time folks with one small area for folks like us. It did have a nice general store and the staff was friendly and the store had the only WiFi. No WiFi or cell service in the park. Due to the holiday, the park was packed with families and lots and lots of children. It rained a lot which made it muddy. There are two small towns nearby (10 miles). Not one of my favorite parks. - Tom-Sandy

Older reviews sum it up. Just wanted to add best suited to smaller and medium rvs. We did fit 43 feet in midweek. Entrance narrow, roads narrow but trees are well trimmed. Owner helpful , had a full service 50 amp spot. Couldn't get Satalite from our spot phone service 1 bar for Verizon. Lots are grass we had the only gravel spot 107.
Every rv park in this area is for smaller rigs. Check out Rushford for converted mobile home park. - what next

This is a very pretty campground. The office personnel were nice and friendly. It is not set up for a big rig coach. Leveling was difficult and bugs were very bad. The campground was extremely crowded with multiple tents and pop-ups on each site. It is a great place for children and family gatherings, but not for big rigs. The roads are very narrow for maneuvering. - larriin

Wonderful experience! The owner is so nice and helpful! She really wants her guests to be happy and have a good time! The grounds are nicely landscaped, they have a great playground, basketball, volleyball, horse shoes, and cabana with wifi. A HUGE clean swimming pond! We really enjoyed that! The trees around the property are mature and beautiful! - tammiann61

Very pricy quiet mostly seasonal campground that only allows 1 night during the week when there is very few people there. Weekend requires 2 nights. Grass and dirt sites that are at back of campground next to storage area for overnighters. They have a sand beach and pool? next to restrooms and pay showers which is why showers are dirty. Good electric water and sewer locations. Excellent Wi-Fi and OTA channels but no cable. Good for a overnighter. - Biggyrat

Quiet park next to a wilderness area, which creates a BIG mosquito population. Be sure to pack your bug spray. Close to great birding areas. Great walleye fish fries. - jeanne gowan
