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.

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.

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.
