Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

This large campground offers over 100 campsites for campers as well as a handful of cabins for guests. The campground is split into two main sections, one much smaller than the other. We enjoyed the smaller loop; it felt "newer" and almost like the perfect mix of RV resort and
state park with the hookups, well-groomed spacious sites. All sites here have stunning views of the Superstition Mountains which are the upthrusted remnants of a volcano from millions of years ago. Camp sits at the base of these mountains which offer spacious sites spitted with saguaro cacti, mesquite trees and grasses. In spring, wildflowers bloom in abundance. The views are beautiful anyplace in camp. The campground offers some sites with water and electric hookups. All sites have paved site pads, fire pits and picnic tables. Many sites are pull thru while others are back in. With no trees and long pads, this plave is big rig friendly. Hikers, mountain bikers, and birders will all enjoy the abundance of trails available to visitors. There is a day use parking lot equipped with restrooms, but very separate from the campground loops. Only 40 miles from Phoenix, this place can get beastly hot in the summer, but fall through spring are the best times to visit. For us, this is our favorite AZ state park.
