Love this Park for camping and hiking. We try to stay here everytime we come out here from Michigan. Wish it had been warmer, but it's still better than home.

We took the 2.4 mile Treasure Trail. There were challenging sections due to elevation rise but all in all I did well with a less than perfect knee. Great views, interesting cacti.Campground looked nice. Nice picnic and restroom facilities.

Dump-stations and garbage very easy access. This park requires day pass or overnight site pass so...More

My family and I enjoyed the Treasure Loop trail with its beautiful views of Superstition Mountain and lovely, colorful flora. It got windier as we climbed higher, but the scenery was so pretty that we didn't mind. The trail didn't take more than 1 1/2...More
