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. We camped at Lazy-D Campground & Trail Rides in a Travel Trailer.

Big sites. Good shade in most sites. Friendly staff in the office/store. Nice scenery down in the bluff country. Cell phone service was not available. TV reception was also not gonna happen. Will stay at again. We camped at Lazy-D Campground & Trail Rides in a Travel Trailer.

This private campground is within approximately 1/2 mile of Whitewater State Park and provides an alternative with a swimming pool and the waterfront within easy walking distance of the campsites. The campground straddles the Whitewater River. The two banks are joined by a footbridge, with separate road access to each side. Many sites are right on the waterfront, with others being but a stone's throw away. A medium-sized outdoor pool, a store with a modest inventory, a shower building, and a museum housing the owners' collection of carriages, buggies and related ephemera complete the grounds. Approximately one third of the RV sites are occupied by seasonal or monthly campers. A few of these have sewer connections, but in contrast to the listings in some publications, sewer connections are not available to campers staying for less than a season. The RV sites all have water and electric. The sites are, generally, level, about 40' wide, and 50' deep or more. There are no pull through sites. There is good tree cover with most sites in partial shade throughout the day. The staff and facilities are overwhelmed during peak holiday periods when the campground is occupied to full capacity. The campground was flooded several years ago. Travelers should keep the possibility of flash floods in mind due to the proximity of the river. The staff arranges various activities for guests. We did take advantage of the trail rides, which were well organized, on time, and on truly enjoyable terrain. The horses provided for these rides were however well into their autumn years and the artless dunning for tips at the conclusion of the ride was unexpected and detracted from our memory of the experience. We camped at Lazy-D Campground & Trail Rides in a Travel Trailer.
