Departing Lost Dutchman

Lost Dutchman SP Site #93

We’ve spent 6 nights enjoying the warmth and quiet desert setting of Lost Dutchman.  After heavy rains in mid-February, the lush greenness of the park continues to amaze us.  In the 76-108 camping loop, there were daily arrivals and departures.  Only the pull-through site #94 next to us remained empty for an overnight or two.  Both of our sites (#88 & #93) were great back-in sites.  #93 was perhaps best because of the patio side late-day shade and the impressive view of the Superstitions at sunset.

On Friday we attended the Diamondbacks and Dodgers game at Walking Stick – a beautiful facility about 40 minutes from Lost Dutchman.  Saturday we explored the local area a bit with a trip out to Tortilla Flat and along Canyon Lake.  On Sunday we did the “tourist” thing, wandering around the nearby Goldfield Ghost Town and the Superstition Mountain Museum.

In between sightseeing we did manage to tour some of the additional facilities and sites in the park.  For electric/water sites, the back-in sites along the southern edge are nice sized and private – best would be  #29-#26  On the 76-108  “small” loop, sites #104 & #102 are back-ins very similar to #93.  #96 is a short pull-through with an awesome view of the mountain.

We’re currently enroute to Florence, AZ – just about an hour away, half way in between the Phoenix metro area and Tucson.  We’re going to spend 1 night at Desert Garden’s RV Resort where we’ll take the sales tour to see what the options and facts are behind purchasing an RV lot.  More from Florence…
