Excellent park as others have written. Great views, great hiking, lots of privacy in most of the sites. We were in site 11 and this loop has smaller sites and less privacy than some of the higher-numbered loops (as well as no hook-ups). The place is huge and could be a long walk to the bathroom for some areas. We have stayed here and at nearby Usery Mountain and the parks are very similar in their amenities, camping experience and closeness to services in town, but Lost Dutchman is quite a bit further from Phoenix. I would return to either park again without hesitation. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The Good Apple Market in Apache Junction is a health-food store with incredibly low prices on produce and supplements, and only about 5 miles from Lost Dutchman. The Superstition Mountain Museum, about a mile from the park, is a wonderful little museum and a great value for $5.

Wow, we loved it here. The campground itself is well laid out, with sites spaced far enough away from each other to afford good privacy. The park is beautiful, including great views of Superstition Mountain from just about anywhere. Lots of hiking trails ranging from short walks to arduous, multi-hour climbs in adjacent Tonto National Forest (which includes Superstition Mountain). Moreover, the park's staff were exceedingly helpful when I discovered it was physically impossible for me to get into the site I had reserved online because of the size of our rig (see tips). The park manager himself came over and assessed the situation; he agreed and graciously offered that we stay the night in the (dry-camping) overflow while he tried to find a solution for the remainder of our stay. The next morning at 8:00, a park staff knocked on our door and explained that they had found us a suitable, non-reservable spot and were holding it for us for the remainder of the week. We moved and had a wonderful time during the following days. They even refunded us the rate difference between our reserved site and the overflow site for the first night despite the whole thing being pretty much my mistake. Not only will we make it a point to stay here again, I also wish to highlight the park staff's outstanding level of professionalism and helpfulness. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Be wary of the new loop (sites 75-104) if you're in a bigger rig. Many are not suitable despite being described as very long on the reservation website; they may be very acute U-type pull-throughs, or be at such a sharp angle to the (quite narrow) road as to be impossible to back into. Site #93 was such a case for our 40' fifth-wheel with long-bed dually combination..

Been coming here for years. Some of the nicest people we have ever met. Sites are clean, level, and looking at the Superstition Mountains are just great. The town of Gold field is within site and people may not like the train whistle that they blow when the train pulls out of the station but it doesn't bother us.

This is one of the prettiest parks we stay in. The Saguaro Cactus are plentiful and the view of Superstition Mountain is awesome. Very friendly hosts and grounds keepers. Very clean, paved sites and roads. Walking and hiking paths throughout the area, all the way up Superstition Mountain for the very robust. Close to restaurants and shopping, but the feeling of being far away. We loved this park. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This is a beautiful setting with wonderful sunsets, red rocks, and attractive desert vegetation. Very quiet. Nearly a perfect park. I would give this a 10 except no sewers or wifi. There is a clean and easy to use dump site. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Great spot, big sites, handles big rigs really well. The sunsets and scenery here are just killer. Nice long pads, good water pressure, etc. One thing though, this campground can be windy given its spot at the base of the Superstition Mountains. Great value for the price. Would come back here for sure! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful park with large, well separated sites. About one third of the sites have water/electric, the rest are dry. Good showers available. Very quiet at night. Verizon signal is weak. I recommend you use a satellite map when choosing your site because some sites have the sitting area facing the road because a wash drops off behind the site. Those sites have no privacy at all. Excellent trails right in the park. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We enjoyed our time at this campground. Beautiful mountain views. Campsites only include water and electric, but a dump station is available. Campground is close to an old mining town (Goldfield) with shops and restaurants. Campsites are large and had some distance from fellow campers. Hiking trails were available throughout the park. We had no issue getting a DirecTV and Verizon 4G signal. Freeway access and grocery stores is about 20 minutes away. We would camp here again.

Beautiful setting in the Superstition Mountains. Spacious sites with picnic table and fire pit. All sites with hookups had reservations. They have an overflow area, dry camping, no reservations there. Clean showers and bathrooms, but very busy. Lots of hiking trails and close to Apache Junction shopping. We would come back.

What a gem! This is a very well maintained State Park, with very friendly and helpful staff at check in. Roads and sites are paved. Our site was level, very long and very wide, big rig access was good. Quiet, with privacy and space around the RV, plenty of space for the towed. Picnic table, fire ring and grill all in a wonderful desert setting, with incredible views to the Superstition Mountains, the Hosts were constantly cleaning and raking around the sites, they do a great job of keeping the Park immaculate. The bathrooms were clean. Pet friendly and lots of wonderful trails to walk your pet. No WiFi but cell was good. Safeway and Bashas' are about 5 miles down the road and there are a couple of restaurants about 5 minutes from the Park. We were here during the week when it was quiet, but we were told that it gets very busy at the weekend. We would stay here again. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

The Good Apple Market in Apache Junction is a health-food store with incredibly low prices on produce and supplements, and only about 5 miles from Lost Dutchman. The Superstition Mountain Museum, about a mile from the park, is a wonderful little museum and a great value for $5.MrSunshine • March 2015
