This is probably my favorite campground in Arizona, in the foothills of the awesome Superstition Mountains. There are good, paved interior roads; spacious, mostly level, paved sites; with impressive mountain and desert views. Campground is clean and well-maintained. There are easy hiking trails within the Park, and trails up into the Superstitions for the more adventurous. Shopping, restaurants, etc. are only about 5 miles away, in Apache Junction. The campground was full the whole time we were there, with quite a few in overflow. I'd recommend a reservation well in advance, at least in the Winter. The only negative I saw is a shortage of restroom/shower facilities - only two buildings for 130-plus campsites. If you're not self-contained, this could be a problem. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely breath taking! Had an absolutely amazing experience and wonderful staff! Very friendly! I just wish there was full hookup, but they do have a dump station! Has clean restrooms and showers. Sites are sunny and open, and the surface is asphalt with a fire ring and picnic table. Site 92 was a very nice with amazing views. Was able to walk out our door to a trail head! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice and very clean campground. we stayed in site 48 and had a huge site! it was very nicely outlined with rocks in a clover shape and raked clean. there is a nice picnic table an fire ring. the asphalt pad was level and had plenty of room for out trailer and truck, with room to spare. The pads are spaced far apart and the natural brush, trees and cacti provided privacy. the views of Superstition mountains and the incredible sunsets were spectacular. The water pressure was excellent, as was the power. (small gripe; both 50a and 30a receptacles were somewhat loose, no heat problems though) the dump station was clean with dual lanes, and had rinse water and potable water available. There are nice easy trails throughout , great for walking the dogs, who enjoyed all the new smells... Overall, this is a very nice park and we will return. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

a five minute drive to Goldfield ghost town, a fun touristy place with stuff to see, eat and do. halfway there is Mammoth Mine Gift and Rock Shop, which, if you like rocks and dinosaur fossils, is one of the nicest shops we have been in. Clean, well organized and filled with quality fossils, unique gems and petrified wood artifacts. The owner is super friendly and knowledgeable. They also have horses for rent if you fancy a ride.

This is a really nice state park campground. The staff is very nice, the interior roads are wide enough for easy navigation, sites are pretty level and good size. There are hiking trails that lead to the boundary with the Superstition Mountain wilderness and also a fairly moderate and fun MTB trail around the perimeter of the campground. Waking up with the sun behind the Flatiron is a real treat. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park with good trails and very nice camping facilities. Our space (16) was large and level; the restrooms were cleaned at least once or twice per day and were always in good shape. The showers were individual, with an outside lock on each. The power and water worked well. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Another really nice state park in Arizona, I can't think of any reason to give less than the max stars. We checked in just before noon and didn't have any issues at all like the previous poster mentioned. Our pull through site had 3 steps that led up to a large yard area with a picnic table, fire ring and grill. The hookups are on the inside of the site, so if you want to park so that your door faces the mountain, you'll need to run the electric and water under your rig, like we did. But that wasn't an issue. We had such an incredible view. And there are so many trees and bushes surrounding the site, it was very private. We'll definitely be coming back here. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Really liked this place. If sites had sewer hookups, it would be a 5 star. We stayed in site 53 and I believe it was the best site as you look straight at Superstition Mtns. Sites 51/53/55 and 69 to me are the best for views. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoy Lost Dutchman State Park for the trails and camping experience. The ONLY thing that is missing is restroom/shower facility for sites 76 through 104. It is quite a hike to get to the next facility available. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful State RV park situated just under the Superstition Mountains. Found it unbelievable that everything was so green, considering it was the desert. We stayed at two sites (79&57) while there. Both were very nice and plenty of space between other RVs. Both were pull-thru sites, with 57 having the longer paved drive as well as a larger site. Both were full hookup. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed one night to help a friend learn how to set up & use his new tt. (was mine) This is a very nice, scenic park, very well kept, mostly by workcamper/volunteers. . . the only problem we had was low voltage electrical service, which I had noticed previously. 108/109 volts into your rig is hard on a/c etc. Using an adapter 30 amp to 50 plug usually helps, but not this time. .. & the park was nearly empty ( it was 106 out). . In milder weather when a/c is not necessary it's a great place. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Views of the Superstition Mountains and access to hiking & biking trails right from the campsite are a treat, and the low price makes this park a good value. Access roads and sites are paved and in great shape, all surrounded by sand and and desert plantings. Our pull-thru site was quite spacious; the only downside is no privacy between sites. Water and electric hookups were convenient. Although there is no sewer on site, a clean, neat dump station is available. There was no WiFi, but we got a decent Verizon signal. We did not use the restrooms or showers. Although nothing here was truly spectacular, everything was very good, making this one of our highest rated destinations. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Amazing views of the Superstition Mountains, clean bathrooms, private large showers, plenty of space between sites. Natural vegetation provides privacy. We saw rabbits & lots of quail at our site. During the day you can hear the train from nearby Gold Field but we didn't mind. There are trails throughout the park. It is located close enough to town to get food, shop, etc but far enough away. Beautiful place! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We thoroughly loved our stay at Lost Dutchman State Park and are booked already for 14 days next year. Campsites are spacious, level, and hookups are convenient. (Sites are so large that several of the host sites have two large rigs parked on them.) Lots of vegetation on these large sites, with California quail and hummingbirds to entertain you daily. Several hiking trails steps from your campsite and many more in the area. The sunsets are amazing--dinner preparation was interrupted on many a night to take in the spectacular colors. Camp hosts run the campground, and do a great job raking sites in between guests and cleaning bathrooms. A bit more attention could be paid to the corners in the showers, but I'm being really nit-picky. Looking forward to returning! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Apache Junction is approximately 4-5 miles away and provides ample shopping and restaurants.

We did the moonlight ranger hike (held at full moon) - what fun and very informative. Make sure you drive the Apache Trail while in the area--very scenic and relaxing.

Lost Dutchman is one of our very favorite campgrounds. Water and electrical hook ups, but no sewer, although dump station is in campground and easy to use. Older part of the campground has best sites with lots of space, desert plants, good views. Newer areas better for large RV's but spaced closer together. Good walking/hiking trails within the park. Pet friendly. Lots of wildlife including quail and coyotes (serenading us at night.) Many sites with no utilities are available with no reservations.

5miles to Apache Junction. Close to Mining Csmp Restaurant, with live entertainment several nights a week. Close to a museum and a touristy mining town. The campground is located in a very nice state park with good trails, some scheduled programming. Folks in campground office are very helpful with tips for things to do.
