STUNNING
Gorgeous views and very nicely maintained state RV park. Each loop has it's own camp host to handle any issues that might arise {they also sell firewood at their sites}. Long sites but some have incline or decline that may prove tricky to longer motorhomes. We spent a week in no hookups and absolutely loved the peacefulness and spaciousness of the sites! Our only complaint is the trail markers...they are very confusing and sometimes, non-existent. We are avid hikers and did the majority of the trails but use caution when hiking to Praying Hands, especially if you are wanting to do the full loop. We found ourselves off the trail past Praying Hands, ended up retracing our steps and eventually climbing down sheer cliffs to find the trail again. That adventure added 3 extra miles to what was already 6 miles. Just know your limits when hiking at this park because it's, rocky, steep and not well marked. We actually rescued a lady on Siphon Draw that had fallen & watched her helicoptered out.

Great campground with beautiful views. Sites are level and well spaced apart. Bathrooms were clean but few. Could use another bathhouse. We will definitely be back.

Desert Delight
Nice spaces. Lots of pull-through sites. Long hike to the bathrooms and trash. Beautiful views of Superstition Mountains. I only took a short trail, but saw many people hiking and biking towards the longer trails. Quiet at night.

Great glamping spot with beautiful views and wonderful hiking trails as well . We are local and would come back for sure ! My 2 complaints are ; 1. The spots are small compared to other Arizona State Parks . 2 . The camp hosts made duragatory comments about Locals when we asked if we could use a propane fire pit even though it had rained 2 days before . The comments were " These Locals would burn this Campground down , pack up and drive home " We were offended . We love Arizona and would never ever want to cause any damage our beautiful State !

A Beautiful Place To Stay
Very clean, quiet park with nice spacing between sites. The views are beautiful and there are some very nice hikes throughout the park. We were in site 117 (no hookups) and loved that the trails ran right behind our spot and our views of the mountain and sunset were stunning. Will definitely visit again!

I like this place for the view, if you don’t have any reservation you will be probably in the over flow. Nice and clean, like a nice parking lot. Nice hike to do, good location. Hours for genset, quiet, dump station on the site

Acceptable
As another reviewer mentioned, the bathrooms are not convenient or sufficient. From the first W/E loop it's almost 4/10 mile walk each way to get to the showers. Then there's only 1 shower, the other one is out of order. Water is barely warm to boot. Burn ban in Phoenix, who cares. Burn away with impunity. The New Years revelers were special. The views, amazing. Trails are ok, but under heavy use due to proximity to Phoenix. Go up the road into the Tonto Natl Forest for peace and quiet.

Get Away From The Paved Craziness
If you want to stay in the Phoenix area but want to get away from the city, we’d recommend this state park. We’ve stayed 4 time and loved each one. Though a bit far from the city, the distance is more than worth it. Love having water and electricity (wish they had sewer). Lots of trails to hike and for pickleballers, great outdoor courts nearby. Wonderful programs by the rangers.

First and foremost, this is a lovely state park. It is clean and very well kept. Hiking paths were literally just off our campsite. There are so many paths to choose from to hike the Superstition Wilderness of Tonto National Forest. Our site was level and well kept. I would love to rate this park a 5 but the bathroom situation is dismal. We had a pop up and didn’t mind the sites with no electric or water, but it was a genuine distance to either bathroom. There are only two bathroom buildings for 130-some sites and neither of them are close to the site we had - which was a little inconvenient, but not the real issue. There are only two shower stalls in the entire campground. Two!! We were shocked to be the 8th in line for the shower at 7:30am. Had we known, we would’ve gotten up much earlier. This lovely state park would definitely be a 5 if they add more shower stalls - or if you have your own shower and bathroom facilities.

Good Camping
Well laid out, big sites, good showers. Cool views and great trails. After camping in the hinterlands for 2.5 months, this camp felt busy with a slightly urban feel that some might like. Very close to all kinds of stores.

Love The Coyotes At Night!
This park is great, a bit more expensive than my usual pick but well worth it, the bathrooms and showers are GREAT, the spots are spacious and the views are pretty. This is a busy park so if you want seclusion you aren’t going to find it here but the spots give your space the illusion of privacy. The road through tonto national forest is worth the drive, bring a Camera!!

Good Place To Stay
We've been on spot 131,nice leveled place, wonderful view to the mountains. The spots are a bit close to each side and always on parks with and without electricity you have the big rv with running a generator next to you. Very nice hikes close by. The restroom and shower are a bit out dated. We stayed for for nights of the grid.

Stayed here in July. Was hot and monsoon storms rolled thru,but nice park. Spaces are far enough apart to enjoy the views and feel connected with nature. Level spots and many pull thru spots. Great trails for running and hiking. Lots of wildlife - deer, chipmunks and birds. Would definitely stay here again.

Lost Dutchman State Park 2/28/18
Stayed in site #100 for 2 days. Great birding right outside our door. Some higher elevation trails were in fairly bad shape with recent rain. Several spots were washed out leaving rocks and valleys. Hiking on these trails was more than "moderate" due to unstable and rocky trails. No bathroom near this section of the park. Had to hike the trail to use restroom or showers. Overall a nice stay, but hope they improve the bathroom situation. Compared to several other AZ state parks, would give this 3.5/5.

Good Park
Nice park for any size camper. Facilities are clean and sites are flat. Lots of wildlife. Tons of coyotes so watch your pets. The fees- $15 a night plus a $7 vehicle fee, plus $3 a person.

Very beautiful park and wilderness area minutes from Apache Junction and close to metro Phoenix. Outstanding park that is well-maintained by friendly staff and volunteers. RV sites and tent sites at the base of the Superstition Mountains. Wonderful hiking trails to suit all levels. Gift Shop in the Ranger Station.
