In 1972, Louis & Viola Meckel set out on a new adventure together as they opened the gates to Lazy L & L Campground. Through the years, those primitive campground sites have grown into a legacy – now 50 years strong. Rodney and Margie, their children and families have had the privilege of being the proud overseers of Lazy L & L and now, L & L Walhalla.
Louis & Viola’s marriage was a true partnership for 65 years as they worked daily, side-by-side, driving tractors, building fences, raising cattle, or in later years, renting tubes. Through it all, they always shared roles and responsibilities.
In celebration of their long marriage, a chapel opened in 2016 (now known as L & L Walhalla) and was christened by the wedding of Louis & Viola’s grandson and his wife. As a couple recites their vows under the beautiful hand-carved wooden cross, overlooking the field and rolling hills, we hope the commitment and dedication of the Meckel’s marriage creates a solid foundation for their own partnership.
