This is a very nice and very clean campground. we stayed in site 48 and had a huge site! it was very nicely outlined with rocks in a clover shape and raked clean. there is a nice picnic table an fire ring. the asphalt pad was level and had plenty of room for out trailer and truck, with room to spare. The pads are spaced far apart and the natural brush, trees and cacti provided privacy. the views of Superstition mountains and the incredible sunsets were spectacular. The water pressure was excellent, as was the power. (small gripe; both 50a and 30a receptacles were somewhat loose, no heat problems though) the dump station was clean with dual lanes, and had rinse water and potable water available. There are nice easy trails throughout , great for walking the dogs, who enjoyed all the new smells... Overall, this is a very nice park and we will return. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

a five minute drive to Goldfield ghost town, a fun touristy place with stuff to see, eat and do. halfway there is Mammoth Mine Gift and Rock Shop, which, if you like rocks and dinosaur fossils, is one of the nicest shops we have been in. Clean, well organized and filled with quality fossils, unique gems and petrified wood artifacts. The owner is super friendly and knowledgeable. They also have horses for rent if you fancy a ride.

The park has spacious sites and clean bathrooms, but no one has cleaned the showers in days. First shower had a dirty diaper and a mess of hair, second and third were garbage free, but not clean. The forth one had a bloody band-aid on the floor and garbage on the bench. Too bad because it's a great location. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Truck Camper.

Stayed at Lost Dutchman as we visited family in the area. Because of the extreme danger of wildfire there was a ban on any outdoor fires. Daytime temperatures were in the 100 degree range each day but the nights cooled off enough to have the windows open to enjoy the fresh air. Area was well maintained and employee's were very helpful. Stayed in site 100 which is in the first loop and is a moderate walk to the restroom/shower. We camped in a 22 foot travel trailer We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a really nice state park campground. The staff is very nice, the interior roads are wide enough for easy navigation, sites are pretty level and good size. There are hiking trails that lead to the boundary with the Superstition Mountain wilderness and also a fairly moderate and fun MTB trail around the perimeter of the campground. Waking up with the sun behind the Flatiron is a real treat. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As all AZ parks, this one was spotless. The crews keep the sites clean and raked. You could tell they cared. Second time we stayed here and it is great for visiting family. Water and electric is all we needed and both worked well. Gift shop is good for small items. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Goldfield Mining camp is just down the road and worth a visit. Zipline, mine tour, food, street gunfight, and much shopping and tourist items. We liked that it was not real crowded but had many visitors at the time. Lost Dutchman museum is also worth a stop but not as good. The church is a memorial to the western movies and Elvis.

I gave this park a higher rating that I should have but the downfall was our fault. We did not reserve a site!! Access to the park is paved all the way. Our GPS tried to take us down a dirt road. Don't follow the GPS. Stay on highway 88. Check in was quick, efficient and informative. We were placed in the Overflow section for one night (site 118) with no services (same price as everyone else). I could not walk on the left side of my unit with slide out because their was a steep bank that dropped down about four feet. The site was a paved island with a gravel patio area with a metal table and a fire pit. No shade as it is located in the desert. It was very basic but we were happy to get the spot. The second night we were asked to move over to the Group Camp site. This, in our opinion, is much nicer than the overflow (still no services). We had a double wide site, level, with a covered picnic shelter to use and the washroom/shower traffic was pretty much just us. The view was nicer as well. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. We paid $30.00 per night and feel we received good value. We would return but with a reservation. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

The park has spectacular views of the Superstition Mountains pretty much from most of the sites. The check-in process was the most efficient that I have seen as the volunteer and staff were plentiful and available! We stayed in the "newer loop" where the sites are a little closer to each other but we still had enough space to have privacy. This section had some fairly level sites. We had to switch to one that required blocks under our front wheels but no big deal. Bring your camera for the views and wildlife. We saw Cardinal birds, Hawks, rabbits, quail and other animals from our site which was a treat! Verizon coverage was good. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Goldfield mine if you like to see Western shows and especially if you have children. The Lost Dutchman Museum had some better Indian, mining and local artifacts that we have seen closeup. They also have a nice gift shop. The Apache Trail drive is worth the time to see the historic town of Tortilla Flats, Canyon Lake and beautiful scenery. Stores and restaurants are a short distance from the park.

This is a beautiful park with good trails and very nice camping facilities. Our space (16) was large and level; the restrooms were cleaned at least once or twice per day and were always in good shape. The showers were individual, with an outside lock on each. The power and water worked well. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have been coming to this park for thirty years. Have always loved it and considered the facilities as basic but clean. This visit we have seen a huge drop in the cleanliness of the bathrooms and especially the showers. This trip so far (12 days) and the showers have the same hair, cobwebs and desbris. It is amazing as this park has 26 hosts and abundant Rangers also. Possibly because so many people that everyone thinks someone else will do the cleaning. We love the Arizona State Parks but there is something wrong here. Other AZ State Parks are very clean and everything gets done with far fewer hosts. We will come back but advice to everyone is to complain and also maybe shower and use the facilities inside your RV until things improve here. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Another really nice state park in Arizona, I can't think of any reason to give less than the max stars. We checked in just before noon and didn't have any issues at all like the previous poster mentioned. Our pull through site had 3 steps that led up to a large yard area with a picnic table, fire ring and grill. The hookups are on the inside of the site, so if you want to park so that your door faces the mountain, you'll need to run the electric and water under your rig, like we did. But that wasn't an issue. We had such an incredible view. And there are so many trees and bushes surrounding the site, it was very private. We'll definitely be coming back here.

We 'were' regulars and have enjoyed this park quite a bit over the years. There is a new manager there that has decided to get rid of many waste receptacles as well as some other head scratching changes. Not for the better from what we can tell. We were told that another new rule is no checking in before check in time, even if your site is empty from the night before. We challenged that rule with the corporate office after being forced to turn our huge rig around a very tight spot after being denied check in...to an empty, clean site. Further we were told to go park in a local business parking lot to wait till check in time. The business was not pleased. I do believe they got things straightened out after corporate got involved. The next morning people were checking in as early as 9AM. Hopefully the new manager will not totally spoil the park. Fingers crossed, but so far it is discouraging.

There are a couple tourist type attractions nearby but we did not do them. They did look like fun. If there is rain be sure to watch for flash floods. We had a flood the last morning and had 30 foot wide by 1 foot deep all around the motorhome. Drainage was good and complete once the rain stopped.

Really liked this place. If sites had sewer hookups, it would be a 5 star. We stayed in site 53 and I believe it was the best site as you look straight at Superstition Mtns. Sites 51/53/55 and 69 to me are the best for views. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.

Another beautiful public park campground near Phoenix, with great mountain views. We stayed a week in the new section, sites 76-104, which all have electric and water. The sites here are much closer together than in the old section, with those around the outside of the loop (like ours) having a bit more privacy than those in the center of the loop, which looked really crammed together, one on top of the next. Sites are paved which is nice, but not level; we needed wood blocks under our front tires before our jacks could get us level. There is no bath house in the new section, so it's either a drive or a fairly long walk to get to one of the two bath houses in the old section. The old section has much more spacious and private sites, some with electric and water and some without hookups. Generators are allowed on the no hookup sites, so there will be some noise from them. The showers were a bit dated-looking, but the water was hot with good pressure which is what matters to us! We like that the various trails are easily accessible right from the campground, rather than having to drive to a trailhead. There were plenty of places to walk our dog. It's an 8-10 minute drive to supermarkets and restaurants in Apache Junction. Our Verizon and AT&T both worked pretty well without a booster, though our AT&T signal was only 1 bar at our site. There were lots of cholla cactus around the campground, including several right at the edge of our site, and our dog and our neighbor got stuck by them, so be careful! We'd return here. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Motorhome.
