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!!!
