This was a beautiful park with lots of great facilities (pool, whirlpool, sauna and big library with sofas and big screen tv) and lots of activities (rock shop). The people were the friendliest we have ever encountered. Desert hiking trails are accessible from the park. There are animals to watch and the weather is near-perfect. - CharDu

This is a large park with mostly park Models. It’s nice if that is what you’re looking for—I’m not sure why it is called an RV resort. We stayed under the Passport America rate for three nights and it was advertised as having Wi-Fi and cable, but these amenities are only for long-term and monthly residents. I would not stay here again. - Tim M.

This place is no longer an RV Resort. It is an exceptional, well maintained and appealing, Park Model Resort. Sites available to overnighters or those seeking a week stay have become fewer in number. We were originally placed in a site without power and had to relocate. Not an easy task to accomplish with a Motorhome and a tow. We ended up with a partial shaded, spacious back-in site. The site though was not level and this caused some leveling problems and holding tank dumping problems. We were staying in a residential area and it would be difficult to do otherwise here. Felt has if we were intruding and as strangers each day. The surrounding residents kept a close eye on us. The Park Model folks have little or nothing in common with RVers. The resort has raised the overnight fee and dropped the cable TV access for RVers. For the Passport America discount they now charge an extra $3.00 per day. There was just one pull-through site available. The others are clearly taken up by long term residents. Still we like the place and the local area. They have one of the best clubhouses and libraries we have seen. The outdoor pool and hot spas are open during the winter and well maintained. The bottom line is that we will likely not be returning because of the increase in the overnight rate and the manner of charging us extra for electric. - James Barr

OK for an overnight stay. Small campground but does have pull-throughs that are level. Close to Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Friendly staff. They do have a laundry (get the key) and propane on site. Will stay here again, especially if going to Boyce Thompson or the Renaissance fair. - Rick Lechner

Nothing fancy but an OK place to stay for a day or two. We stayed here while visiting Boyce Thompson. Electricity, dump, and water at sites. No TV or Wi-Fi. Very friendly staff. We would stay here again. Have a good week rate so would stay here if we visited Boyce Thompson for an extended period of time. - Rick Lechner

We stayed here for a week. Rate of $130 was reasonable. The park is gravel based, sort of like a parking lot, but the surrounding hills are beautiful and there is a lot of nice scenery (including Devil's Canyon & the Tonto National Forest Cave Dwellings) to be seen. Great motorcycle riding in the area. Residents here are mostly long term. We stayed in one of the (4) pull-throughs available. Showers were clean, but are coin-operated, so we didn't use them. Their website says cable is available, but we didn't have it. Manager friendly and this park is motorcycle friendly. Propane is available. We would probably stay here again in the future if space available. - User1505

Park basic, cheap. Manager is rude and lies to the customers. Noisy. Far from town. - Sergei

Rate reflects annual site charge. Very friendly park with nice amenities. Lots of ATV's and OHV's with group rides several days a week. Pool, pickle ball, shuffleboard, church services, bocce ball, horseshoes, paved streets for walking and biking. Desert access for biking, hiking or ATV. A good mix of full time RVers, snowbirds, permanent residents and overnighters. There are a fair number of park models mingled in with RV's. - ksgypsy

We stayed here 3 Months. Lots of activities. Very friendly staff. And very friendly campers. This campground joins BLM land and is great spot for 4 wheelers you can go out the back gate for access. Perfect spot to walk your dog. Sites are nice and wide. We will come back again. - 210george

The staff was friendly and the location on the lake is awesome. No sewer hookups,(pump out service was available) and a showers are small and in in a self contained trailer due to the close proximity of the lake. - User1725

Great park. Fantastic landscaping. Very clean. 24 hour security. Beautiful clubhouse with all the facilities you could want including 2 pools, sauna, steam room, and Jacuzzis. Quiet and friendly. Good laundry facilities. Not much to complain about here! - red yamaha

Rate reflects a 30 day rate. Overall we are very satisfied with the resort. The site we had did have cable TV ,electric, and trash were included. For longer stays that differs as per website. The cable is good, the trash pickup is twice a week, and since no can is provided most purchase one. We did at Camping World. The pet area is not adequate in my opinion...poor grass,no trash can there and no lighting. Also limited area to walk the dog. We heard they have plans to expand the pet area in October. The resort location was perfect for us as away from major traffic areas but 10-15 minutes away from anything you need. Also, we went into the housing development across 60 and could bike, walk or hike into the mountain. There is plenty to do in and out of the area such as hike,golf,sight see multiple cities nearby. - A.E.Michell

We received a coupon for a free visit at a rally. The price I quoted is a daily rate without a coupon. The grounds are lovely with good signage and a nice entry road. The roads by the camp sites are a bit on the narrow side for easy maneuverability in and out of sites. The sites are gravel with nice-sized concrete patio pads. Our site had quite a slope, but most appeared to be flat. The utilities are placed at the back of the site and we had to use an extension for the sewer. The majority of the sites are occupied by older park models but most have attractive landscaping. The park is immaculate and the green of the golf course, and the landscaped park models, are a nice change from the rocky grounds of much of this area in Arizona. There are many activities and we felt welcomed and were invited to participate in dances and meals. There is one dog park. It is a nice size and has grass, but no shade in the heat of the day and no lighting at night. There is no WiFi or cable unless you purchase a package. Other than that, my only complaint was that we backed up to a park model with a noisy A/C unit and a noisier dryer. We would stay here again, especially if we could stay for a longer period of time so we could get involved in activities. - Dreaming

They have a separate section for short stayers. It is close to the highway but at night (and during the day) you don't hear anything, and we like quiet. Gravel spots, all back-ins with a concrete patio. Only negative was there is no shade or trees or any green, no landscaping at all but you are in the dessert! Great sunsets and views over the mountains and the saguaros. Free spotty WiFi (and the resort was empty), lots of stations on our antenna in HD. The resort is filled with park models and homes. We normally don't go to resorts like this but great to stay for a couple of weeks. Pickle ball, tennis courts, swimming pools and lots more. We will come back. Be sure to ask for specials if you want to stay longer. - Traveller Excel

The best aspect of this park is the friendliness of the residents. We stayed in the park for a month and got a reduced price but it was still costly and long-term residents pay extra for their electricity. The park has great facilities including 2 pools and hot tubs with tennis, pickle ball, bocceball, horseshoes and a library, computer lab and many other club facilities and activities. The park includes lots of park model residents and a permanent house area adjacent to the RV and park models. It is the kind of place where the motto is "if you are bored it is your own fault" because there is so much to do. The park is quiet despite being on a busy highway with lots of traffic and difficulty getting out at certain times. - mountainfan

The resort entrance and activities areas are nicely landscaped. We stayed in the short-term section, which is not. Although, to the north was a great view of the Superstition Mountains, and to the west, open desert and great sunsets.
The sites are lose gravel with a concrete patio. The terrain falls away from the patio to the street which made leveling the RV difficult. The hookups were in the back, so we had to backup the next site to be close.
They have no cable TV service, but the antenna picked up many stations although most were Spanish language. March is a terrible month for a college basketball fan to be without cable.
They have Wi-Fi but it is useless in the short-term area. I had to go to customer services each morning to use my computer.
We were across from the dumpsters, so it was quite messy. I never saw any employee there to pick up the trash that blew out of the dumpsters.
They have a free Happy Hour which was great if you could find out when and where it was held. Guest Services didn't know. Other than that the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The short-term area is separated from the main resort by a canal. This marks a clear change in scenery. To the south are row upon row of boxes (park models) while the north has a wide range of RV's of all colors. - Martini

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. - DaveInOhio

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! - Ontheroamagain

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. - Ftcollinscamper

The portable potties were overflowing, the only shower is at the restaurant, with one shower and toilet for the whole campground and day visitors. The site is very good as far as a lake view and location near the water. It was very roomy but the staff was overwhelmed by the dog complaints and noise everywhere. Poorly run, managed and staffed facility with the worst bathroom, shower, and portable toilet set up. - rpod 171

Canyon Lake is beautiful and this campground has 22 sites with water and electric that are all less than 50 yards from the lake. There is also a pretty full service marina and a good restaurant on site. There is a row of 30 amp sites that are intended as back-ins and another row of 50 amp sites, which are pull-throughs. The campground has several problems, all of which are correctable if they make the effort. They should put in at least a dump station if no sewer hook-ups for the sites. They should also do a better job of defining the day use area and separating it from the campground as we experienced a large volume of day use people hanging out right in front of our rig. There is also a problem with the numbering of the sites in the 50 amp section, which led to much disagreement among the campers in this area during our stay. Another criticism of the 50 amp area is that they set it up for hookups on the right ignoring the motorhomes who need it on the left. When a group of us were discussing this with the campground staff (while arguing about the site numbering), the staff replied that the motorhomes can back or come in around the other direction thus facing the road as opposed to the lake - this did not go over well with the people with motorhomes. Lastly, the staff were friendly, but not inclined to enforce the rules. They allowed a couple who brought 8 children with them to pitch a tent on the shared grassy area (two violations - supposed to be a max of 6 people per campsite and no tents are allowed on the shared grounds). When our neighbor asked the staff about it, they replied that they decided to ignore it. The large tent blocked our view of the lake for the two nights this family was there. The staff also ignored the frequent violations of the rule asking people to pick up after their dogs. We have two dogs and were the only people in the campground who picked up after our dogs during our stay. All in all, they have a great location and a mediocre campground, which could also be very good with a little more effort from the management. - dean&maria

Last resort stay, what brings rating down is un-friendliness of guests, if you are not 65+, rude people!, water very hard and bad taste. Sites are narrow with not much parking for personal vehicle, park car under neighbors slide. Nightly cost is OK for what you get, will I stay again? definitely NO. - my86gw

This is a no frills park which is what we like. We need good TV, cell phone reception and WiFi and we had all three. We hope to spend next winter here again. - karenf.
