Nice clean decently spaced sites, great views, okay bathroom, decent price, close to town for all your needs. We strayed in the no hookup sites by mistake, didn't notice it when I made reservations. No hookups is fine for us as we have solar, what I didn't care for was the generators many others use but I guess that's my problem, just something to keep in mind. The showers could use some work, getting dated and not very clean, even if you are the first in after the volunteers get done. Overall I think if I had gotten a site around the campgrounds perimeter we would have liked it better, the generator noise was a turnoff for us. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A great State Park with roomy sites, awesome Superstition mountain views, and lots of wildlife. Good, paved interior roads, and mostly level, paved sites. Plenty of trails, from easy to challenging. Lots to do in the Park and nearby. The only negatives: Not enough restrooms/showers; if you don't use the one in your RV you might have a lengthy walk. Only one dump station; two can dump at once but there can be a wait. Campgrounds were full the 2 weeks we were here - reserve well in advance to get a site. We would definitely stay here again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

One of the best State parks we have encountered! Spotless, natural separation from other campsites, very quiet, great roads BUT hard to get a reservation unless your are months in advance of your stay. This park stays booked so plan your return at least 6 months prior. Great hiking and biking. Stables near by and shopping about 4 miles away. It doesn't get much better for a water/electric only site. Fire wood is .... crazy expensive! $5 gets you about 3 small sticks of wood. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

We love this AZ state park. Currently in our second time staying here and already have reservations for a two week stay in Jan, 2016. But, what's not to love?! Mostly spacious sites, many big rig friendly with water and electric. Only ding is no sewer hookup, but there is a large two lane dump station on site. Almost all sites have unfettered views of the beautiful Superstion mountains, a picnik table, and fire ring. A few sites aren't super level, but most are close. Amazing hiking, very dog friendly, and quiet (except for an annoying whistle throughout the day from a nearby "gold mine"). If you get tired of hiking in the park, there are tons of phenomenal trails nearby. Close enough to the big city for touristy stuff, but so very nice to return to the park. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Besides the natural beauty of the place, we were especially impressed with the staff and volunteers. The approach to the park is clearly marked and ready to find and get into. Upon driving up to the Park office to check in, the staff comes out to your rig to get you checked in and oriented. It was quick and effortless. When a nearby camper left, the volunteers were there within minutes to check the site and rake the gravel. There are individual trash bins at each site and recycle bins are nearby and at many locations.

The restrooms were very clean and warm! They are conveniently located; There were two within yards from our spot. It was down to the 20's F overnight. The air-dry blowers seemed to take air directly from outside without warming, so that was chilly. The showers were roomy enough, warm and good water pressure, but felt dark and not up to the standards of the rest of the park as we experienced it. That's the -1 star on cleanliness.

As stated in another review, some of the sites are tight for larger rigs, and can be unlevel. We drove through the campground a week or so earlier when we were nearby and we were able to scout out the site we wanted (64) We did have to prop up one side of the 5th wheel for side-to-side level. We were dry camping.

The site is gravel with a bbq, picnic table and fire pit. There are lots of trails from novice to expert ability. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The ghost town nearby was disappointing. To me, it felt like a western-style strip mall, designed to separate you from your money. It may be of value to families with yung'uns if you have the $ to spend on rides and attractions (train ride, zip line, mine tour, "mystery shack", which were all about $7 each). There was a cute gun-fight staged in the center of town. There was no entry fee and parking was free, so it was a nice stroll on a beautiful day. Otherwise, meh.

We enjoyed our time at this campground. Beautiful mountain views. Campsites only include water and electric, but a dump station is available. Campground is near the old mining town of Goldfield that has shops and restaurants and about 7 miles from shopping. Campsites are large with good seperation between sites. Many hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty available throughout the park. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great value for a site so close to an urban area of 4 million. Hiking and bike trails are abundant. We came for a "star party" of star gazing lectures and activities, which is great if you're prepared for cold and dark. Most sites are reasonably level and accessible, and most have hookups. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Truck Camper.

This is probably my best ever camping experience. It was my second visit and this time we stayed a week--longest we have ever stayed at one place. The views are beautiful. The state park is well run. The employees as well as the volunteers are helpful and they are oh so proud of the park. There is a dry camping loop which serves as an over flow area. Most of the electric sites are large and private. The newly renovated loop (75-104) was originally the overflow loop. Water and electric has recently been added. This loop, and only this loop, is tight and crowded. We were so disappointed when we saw our site. However, it had a wonderful view and the site was still much bigger than most private park sites. Next time we will reserve earlier and get a more private site on another loop. A bath house has been planned for our loop but has not been funded yet. It was a long trek to the bath house. No place is perfect but Lost Dutchmen is about as close as it gets. Hiking is wonderful in the spring! We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You can now make reservations up to a year in advance. Feb-April is the busiest time. You definitely need to make a reservation even with a tent for the peak period. Bathrooms can be a far walk. On weekends there can be a long wait at the dump. We dumped the night before we left.

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.
