We left Tucson Sunday the 17th staying overnight in Mesa at Mesa Spirit RV Park before going into Lost Dutchman State Park on Monday the 18th.
WOW...just WOW!!! What a great site (#27) we had for the most spectacular place we have visited so far. Beautiful!! Waking up to snow one morning only added to the beauty.
Excuse us for all the photos, some that seem like doubles, but we just wanted to share what we experienced!!
Lost Dutchman State Park is located on the Apache Trail, State Route 88, north of Apache Junction. Highway 88 crosses the northwest portion of the Park, private land is on the south, and the Tonto National Forest on the north and east. The Park provides views and access to the most scenic portions of the legendary Superstition Mountains and maintains facilities to support the recreational activities. The famous tales of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine are known throughout the world, with travelers from all over coming to seek the legend and experience the mystery. If not in search of the gold, they become entranced with the golden opportunities to experience the beautiful and rugged area known as the Superstition Wilderness accessible by trails from the Park.
Nothing else to say except if you are traveling like we are make this a must spot!
