Love this place. Have stayed several times, lots of room, beautiful views, nice dump station on sight with water. Cell both Verizon and ATT not great but worth it for the camping.

“Noisy.”

Reviewed Dec 09, 2018

Overall Rating

The location is convenient with some nice, but busy hikes nearby. Our loop had no washrooms, so a bit of a walk. Listening to generators in the morning and evening was not pleasant.

Overall, this campground is just ok.

My wife and I stayed here with Electric and 50Amp service, no Waste hookup but there is a common dump station. The sites are clean and well kept. Raked between guests. Plenty of space between sites for good privacy. Showers were clean and water was hot. There are more camp hosts than I have ever seen in a campground. Each small lo... more

“Spoiled us for future camp sites”

Reviewed Mar 18, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first camping experience. We picked up our teardrop trailer in Mesa and camped for the night. This park spoiled us for future camp sites. We stayed on the last weekend in January and environment was perfect. We opted to stay in Mesa later than check out so we moved to the group campsite for $20 for the second day.

Lost Dutchman is one of those campgrounds where not all the sites are created equal. As a result, your experience will vary depending on which site you have. This was our second time staying here and the site we got this time around (#120) was amazing. Tucked into the corner of the dry camping loop we had an unobstructed view of the Su... more

“Great! ”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Really clean sites, felt safe and welcoming. Standard pricing for the area with Water and power hookups. We loved all the hikes, and the beauty of the Superstition Mountains outside our windows. Obviously a little noisy due to so many campers nearby. They have no generator hours after 8pm so that helps.

Nice park, I had a pull-thru which seemed to have enough vegetation that I had enough privacy. They put the water and electric on the picnic table side of the site but it was easy enough to hookup so that I could have my front door facing the mountains. During my stay it was a bit rainy so the mountains had clouds and fog which creat... more

“A very well maintained and accessible State Park, with a few nice hikes nearby.”

Reviewed Jan 09, 2018

I loved this place, but it had some drawbacks. The sites are relatively spread out and well-groomed. There's a mix of back-ins and pull-throughs. Campground hosts were prevalent. The Superstition Mountains make for a spectacular backdrop for the campgrounds when you're facing east. The western "backdrop" is mostly a view of the su... more

The views of Superstition Mountain were spectacular. Just before sunset the mountain glowed with a crimson light. Due to 95 degree weather in October, we opted for a water/electric site. Both worked well. Our site was a pull through site in the newer section number 95. Regarding the pull throughs - most are very tight with a pr... more

“One of my favorite desert places”

Reviewed May 27, 2017

I've camped here many times in the past and it's one of my favorite places to get away, yet still close to town and have some amenities. It's about a 20 minutes drive to a store. Views of the desert are nice, especially the Superstition Mountain background. I usually stay in a barebones site, using my solar panel, but if you want to... more
