We have been here before and it seems they are getting better at catering to the resort RV Guest. The people are super friendly and welcoming to all events. We stayed at the Dutchman side and all was good, site huge with easy access. The Blue Star side is tight so we feel the extra they charge for the premium Dutchman side is worth it. We camped at Lost Dutchman MH & RV Resort (formerly Blue Star RV Resort) (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Blue Star is one of three RV/Park Model parks, all with different addresses, close together. When we originally booked, we booked into Blue Star. When we got the confirmation it said Blue Star. When we called to ask a question, they told us that they'd moved us to Lost Dutchman due to our size. When we checked online, we found out that Lost Dutchman does NOT have any internet in their park. We need wifi, so asked to be put back in Blue Star (as it has wifi) which they did. We arrived a day early, on a weekend, no one was at the office, but some rv'ers found a camp worker to help us. He was super helpful and put us in Lost Dutchman for one night until the office was open. The next morning we moved to our site in Blue Star. The work camper had to get 3 people to move their tow vehicles so we could back into our site. We have a 43' Truck Conversion, which does not turn well. All the sites at Blue Star are very squishy, uncomfortably so. The sites are gravel with small concrete pads. It was difficult to park our towed vehicle in our site. When we left, the camp worker had to get 4 people to move their towed vehicles so we could get out. The wifi was terrible, even with paying an extra amount for better wifi. It was very frustrating. The gym at Lost Dutchman was the best of the gyms, but it was very dirty, and we saw very few of the participants cleaning up the machines after themselves. There were some very friendly RV'ers there and the office staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a terrible sewer smell every day near us. But with so many RV's so close together, we couldn't tell where it came from. We reported it to the office, but nothing was done. We would not stay here again as the sites at Blue Star were way too narrow to be comfortable, and they, apparently, had just redone the park. We would stay at Lost Dutchman if they had wifi in the park, but they have no plans for that. There are a lot of other parks in Apache Junction to choose from. We camped at Lost Dutchman MH & RV Resort (formerly Blue Star RV Resort) (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

We returned to see the renovations. Park looks great, new gravel on sites. Sites are still tight. On the west wall, patio's have been angled to allow for easier access. All new bathrooms, showers,and amenities rooms. Still really friendy. We camped at Lost Dutchman MH & RV Resort (formerly Blue Star RV Resort) (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed at the Lost Dutchman, a mobile home park next door to Blue Star. Both are owned by Sun Communities and Blue Star is the RV Park. Blue Star is being renovated and have no bathrooms, showers, pool, or amenity building and only have some sites usable. They say it might be ready by January.

This review is for the services supplied at Lost Dutchman by Sun Communities.

Check-in was non existent. They knew we were to arrive Friday and no one was available. Office closed, no package containing information including access codes was given. They only offer a RV 50 amp plug, nice to know prior to arrival as a converter is required for 30 amp. They seem to know how to run a mobile home park but must step up the customer service for the RV Guests.

The bathrooms and showers were not cleaned and restocked daily. I mentioned to 3 staff about a dirty stall door and it was never cleaned.

We look forward to the new Blue Star amenities and remodeled Park. We hope they cater to the RV Guest with better customer service than Lost Dutchman. We camped at Lost Dutchman MH & RV Resort (formerly Blue Star RV Resort) (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Smaller older Park. All back in spaces. Check in was laid back, picked from available sites. Most are returning seniors, coming to this park for many, many years. Important to know people are FRIENDLY! I would recommend this park for this reason. New owners have plans to renovate the smaller tighter sites, maybe angle to make back in easier. We camped at Lost Dutchman MH & RV Resort (formerly Blue Star RV Resort) (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Be sure to check ahead as they are almost full and available spaces seem smaller. People are quick to move vehicles as required to get you in.
