Stayed here on Thanksgiving and the campground appeared very full. We had our space reserved ahead of time so we knew we’d have a spot. There is a large overflow section available for people without reservations and that looked completely full as well. We stayed at site #12 which is on a loop without electric and water. Had break ou... more

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 e... more

“Hiking, mountain biking, and views!”

This became one of our favorite AZ state parks for the following reasons: Views: Pick the right site and enjoy unobstructed views of the Superstitions and saguaro cacti. Hiking: The Flatiron hike, an epic southern AZ day hike with lots of scrambling, can be accessed right from the campground. Get an early start and beat the Ph... more

We're solar powered do if we're not dispersed camping we don't mind paying less and staying in primitive sections. During our stay it seemed that at this park the people with rigs that should have hookups instead choose primitive camp sites and bring construction type (loud) generators with them do they won't miss out on using AC or th... more

We had a great week at this campground and found ourselves staring at the scenery on a daily basis. We would swing through here in the future, but wished we had more hiking choices right out of the park. Why - Spending some time in warm weather with easy hiking right out the door. We had heard about the beauty of the campground ... more

We LOVED this park. I first had trouble when we got there as I thought we were going to "Phoenix". Although the smaller town of Apache Junction is not far (there's a Fry's grocery store about 15 minutes away) downtown Phoenix is over an hour. Once we decided to settle down and enjoy the park we were perfectly happy and wished we could ... more

This is a very scenic place to stay, the Superstition Mountain rises above the campground and glows beautifully at sunset. Several trails that head into the superstition wilderness originate in the park, with a mix of easy,moderate and challenging hikes. Not being so keen on heights we stuck to the easy and moderate trails. There is ... more

Lost Dutchman State Park is a great campground with lots of hiking trails and beautiful landscaping. Our site was medium in size compared to some of the others, and relatively private. The generators in our loop ran all day and even past quiet hours. Friends of ours were in site 48, which had a fantastic "yard" and view of the sup... more

I arrived at this park at 4:00pm in high season with no reservations. Even their designated "Overflow Loop" was full! But they did not turn me away. Instead, they had me park in their "Overflow for the overflow" which was the Group Camp parking lot. Now granted, this was $20 a night for an asphalt parking lot with no hookups, but ... more

We really liked this park. It is not far from Apache Junction, Mesa and the larger Phoenix area. And it is very close to the Superstition Mountains and the great views of Tonto National Forest. The park is very well landscaped and meticulously maintained. As soon as a site is vacated, a camp host comes around in a golf cart with bro... more
