Lost Dutchman State Park

History & Nature

The famous tales of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine are known around the world. Some people have spent decades searching for gold in these Superstition Mountains based on the story of one Dutchman who immerged from the mountains with a satchel full of gold under his arm about 100 years ago. But none have yet to succeed.

Things to Do

Hike one of six trails, or challenge them all. Ranging from easy to moderate, the scenic trails are picture perfect. For mountain bikers, four miles of single-track lay at the bottom of the Superstition Mountain. From beginner to intermediate, traverse the Sonoran Desert across a variety of terrains. And when you need to refuel your stomach, several picnic areas and ramadas are available with scenic views.

The park campground has 134 sites, some with hookups for RVs. It’s recommended visitors make reservations directly with the park.
