  • We made reservations at the camp ground for an RV space, they were about a month out. This is a beautiful state park. The spots were spaced apart nicely. The spaces were clean and neat. Roads were a little narrow and a lot of one way roads for a state park. The beauty and trail systems were great. Try and get a spot that is as Far East as possible that way you are close as can be to the mountain for the views. We were quite a bit away but we could still see all the glory the superstitions had to offer from our site. We will come back one day again. Check out the ghost town across the street, Gold field. That was nice to go to and very close for some food, drink and entertainment.
  • WOW. This is such a beautiful state park. The views get more incredible as you go up to flat iron peak. When the sun is setting, it lights up this park in such a surreal way. Definitely a highlight of visiting the Phoenix area. Will definitely return!
