Arizona State Parks strongly believes that social media is a tool for consumers and communities to receive updates. We encourage interaction and discussion on any of our posts.

We believe firmly that social media must be a safe space for all participants to engage in full and fair dialogue. All posters are encouraged to agree or disagree on any positions on any of our social media outlets. We remind individuals who post, that children, youth and families have access to all of these posts and we want to maximize participation that is free from intimidation or bullying.

Name-calling, intimidation or bullying of other social media participants will never be tolerated. Abusive, excessively disruptive and harassing posts will also be considered prohibitive of the fair and safe space we intend to maintain. Posts with unrelated information or political agendas will be removed. We will monitor communications and take appropriate action in order to ensure that these policies are consistently adhered to.

  • A must see for anyone in the area. Beautiful county and the mountains are unreal. Very calming place to visit. Will be back.  more »
  • Really steep and challenging, not for beginners or those that don’t train regularly. But the risk is worth the reward, amazing landscapes, plants, and views.  more »
  • The park rangers are awesome (friendly and knowledgeable). The scenery is amazing at dawn and dusk (couldn't go on any trails due to wild fires). The bathrooms are clean, and the sites are spacious.
  • INCREDIBLE.... I can’t say enough. Hiking, camping, picnicking with family, this is the place. I have lived in the valley for over a decade and it took me WAY too long to discover this place. Breathtaking views, absolutely amazing!!! So much so that we got married here!!! If you love what Arizona has to offer and you haven’t been to Lost Dutchman State Park, you are missing out. This place is beautiful!!! The hike all the way to the summit isn’t easy, and I wouldn’t recommend it for novice hikers or climbers, but even if you don’t hike up, you can enjoy these breathtaking vistas from ground level as well!!!
