The rate given above reflects the daily rate plus electricity. It was very hot while we were there, so we used a lot of electricity! I think the in-season rate is higher, This is our all-time favorite RV Park. The sites, which are level, with modern, working hook-ups, are thoughtfully laid out over hilly, wooded terrain. This is a rural setting which we like. There are several area of open space near-by, conducive for walking. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite places to stay. The only reason we do not give it a 10 is that there are no sewer hookups. This time we camped here on the last days of August -- and it was hot requiring air conditioning throughout the day. I think the rate of $25 refers to the summer rate. This is a nice park in the desert, a rural setting. There is ample room for short walks or lengthy hikes. The RV sites with electric and water are pull-through sites, and are reasonably level. Town (Apache Junction ) is about 7 or 8 miles away. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

We took our family for a night of camping to check out our new trailer a bit closer to home before traveling out of state with it. Lost Dutchman was very nice, with the base of Superstition Mountain campsites, it would be hard to go wrong! We loved it! Nice location, looks like a little stream or streams may run through (when it rains in AZ right). Views of the City at night are truly beautiful and the mountain lights up deep red in the sunset - reminding me of the Dolomites in Italy! Beautiful country. We will definitely be camping here again. Family and pet friendly, Clean facilities, nice people! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting! Our view was of the Flatiron that was exactly like the postcard I bought. Nice sites, not on top of each other. Pull-through sites are nice and wide. The extensive trails in the park are very clean and nicely organized. We will be back again. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wednesday, April 10 – Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, AZ: This park is off the Apache Trail in the Tonto National Forest. There are 68 sites in three loops that interlock. Some have water and electricity but no full hookups. Bath houses were clean and convenient. It is a beautiful campground and some sites can hold the big rigs. All sites with electricity were taken so you might want to make reservations. The mountains surround this area, and there are 320 acres of hiking trails, camping, and picnicking areas. The rangers even offer moonlight hikes and guided hikes, but the schedule should be checked. The cost is $25, but if you make a reservation the fee is $30. We had a beautiful site 43 looking out over the mountains. This park is close to Goldfield Ghost Town and Mine Tours, Superstition Mountain Museum and Superstition Mountains. The Apache Trail climbs past the mountains through Fish Creek Canyon and edges of Apache, Saguaro, Canyon and Roosevelt lakes. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

WOW. Just WOW!!! What a great site (#27) we had for one of the most spectacular place we have visited so far. Beautiful! Waking up to snow one morning only added to the beauty. No trains, planes or other noises you may hear at the commercial Parks. Although not far from 'town' you'd never know it. The view of the Superstition Mountains was just awesome. One of the better State Parks we have visited. Definitely will be back when in the area. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fantastic park although we were lucky to get the last site with hook ups as we didn't have a reservation. Many campers were in the overspill parking dry camping later that day so this park is very popular this time of year. Our satellite navigation bought us in on dirt roads, and we nearly abandoned our efforts. But once we found the campsite it was an easy in and out on tarmac roads via Apache Trail Road from Apache Junction. Our site was next to one of the trails, complete with information along the walk about local bird and animal species and paw prints etc. formed in cement slabs, bird feeding spots and water feature for the wildlife. A coyote walked right past our site in full daylight one afternoon! Loved the coyote sundial along the trail. Located in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains with access to trails up the mountain. Clean restrooms and easy pull through sites. Pet friendly with lots of walks for the pooches to enjoy. Great ghost town gold mine located next to the park. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

This is just a State Park with most of the RV spots in a pull off the roads. Very few back in spots. Also no sewer although there is a dump station here. Not much privacy, a lot of the sites have the picnic table against the road so you pull into the sites going the wrong direction if you want your RV door to open out to the table. . We originally planned to stay here for 3 weeks and paid for that in August through the reservation on line service. We are only staying 8 days and that is only because Christmas falls during our stay here. A lot of this area around the park is Tourist mines and such. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our all-time favorite parks. There are a number of sites with water and electrical hook-ups. These sites have level pull-throughs. The only reason we did not give this park a rating of 10 is due to no sewer hook-ups. If you wish to stay in a place with electrical and water hook-ups, it would be a good idea to make reservations ahead. There are also a large number of excellent sites with no water and electrical facilities. Some, but not all, would be a difficult fit for our 40 foot rig. Lost Dutchman State Park is in the desert, in a quiet country setting over-looking Phoenix, and in turn overlooked by the Superstition Mountains. There are several interesting hikes in the park, including one up the mountain, and many other interesting hikes within easy driving distance. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Outstanding location at the base of the Superstition Mountains with trails that provide a wonderful sunset view of the Phoenix valley. Also great access to the fun Apache Trail road that heads east (the road turns to a single-lane dirt road a few miles beyond Tortilla Flats, so don't drive your motorhome further than that!) The campground was recently upgraded to offer electric at about 1/2 the sites. Unfortunately, this means that RVs staying in the other 1/2 of the sites (some of which are rather small) are often needing to run their generators. A shame they could not have simply put electric in at all sites so the campground would be more quiet. Other than that quibble, this is a great place to stay when in Phoenix! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great state park, close to Apache Junction (5 miles), with good hiking, and biking only on blacktop in campground and in the day use area. It has 1 new restroom and shower; 1 older restroom and shower. The new showers are nice and much cleaner. This is an excellent place to explore the Arizona desert. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lost Dutchman is fantastic desert camping. The view of the Superstition Mountains is incredible, and at night you have the Phoenix metro area lights. Plenty of activities in the park and nearby. Sites are flat and many are pull through. Park is big rig friendly. The only negative is that like other AZ state and county parks, they do not offer sewer hook ups. We look forward to visiting again soon! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camped here for 3 nights and enjoyed this park. Washroom is dated, but very clean with good water pressure. Large pull through sites with a majestic view of the Superstition Mountains. Temperatures were high 90's and needed the A/C. Only a handful of campers due to the heat. Park is in excellent condition with good walking trails and clean sites. We will return.

We have loved staying at this beautiful, well-kept state park nestled against the mystical Superstition Mountains. We have really enjoyed hiking the many trails here. Park rangers are very friendly and helpful. Park recently got electric power with water sites: rates are $25. There are still tent and boondocking sites for $15. We'll be back!
