REGISTRATION WILL BEGIN SOON!
Apache Junction February 4th thru 7th 2021, “Lost Dutchman Cordless Rally”
Lost Dutchman State Park is a 320-acre state park located near the Superstition Mountains in central Arizona named after the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine, a famous gold mine legendary among the tales of the Old West.
Relax in the Quail Group Dry Camp where you can mountain bike, hike, view the wildlife, ride the Dolly Steamboat or catch a musical dinner show at Barleen’s.
The sun setting on the Superstition Mountains is mystical.
We will be at the Quail Group Site. Our group campsites are dry with water and dump stations available in the Main Campground. Bring your generators or solar panels. Preliminary estimated campsite cost is $109.50. (Three-night total; $36.50/night)
A Message From Jim Moser & Shelley Randall (Hosts):
We will be dry camping at a beautiful spot in Lost Dutchman State Park. Electricity will be from your generators, and water from your tank.
In order to prevent the spread of the corona virus, there will be no group meals planned for this rally. All meals are on your own.
We have reserved tables at the Barleen’s Dinner and Show for Saturday night. Tickets are available to purchase during the Registration process.
Also, you may choose to take one or more cruises on the nearby lakes. We recommend Dolly Steamboat on Canyon Lake, or Desert Belle on Saguaro Lake, a bit further away.
There are nice hiking trails around Lost Dutchman State Park, however, trails into the Tonto National Forest are closed.
Shelley and I look forward to seeing you in February.
