Local Area Attractions

Our campground is just minutes away from many area attractions. Use our KOA as your basecamp to take in all the sights our area has to offer!

The Apache Trail

A rich vein of history runs through this region. The Apache Trail once served as a stage coach and freight wagon route from Mesa to Globe. Indians, cowboys and miners have all roamed the mysterious Superstition Mountains. Jacob Waltz's Lost Dutchman Mine is still waiting to be discovered in a hidden canyon.

Today, the Apache Trail remains a treasure chest of adventure. Discover here a most fascinating ecosystem. Experience the breathtaking canyons, desert lakes, towering saguaro cacti and desert wildflowers. Keep a sharp lookout for desert bighorn sheep, coyotes, and rattlesnakes.

It takes more than a day to do Apache Junction
Explore the intriguing history of the area by visiting the museums, prehistoric Native American ruins and a century-old stagecoach stop. At the ghost town, try your hand at panning for gold or take a ride through the desert on a narrow gauge railroad, and remember to take home some prickly pear fudge!

Hike mountain trails or book an off-road jeep tour. Catch the cowboy spirit on a horseback adventure. Fish a desert lake or float through narrow canyons on a steamboat. For dinner, loosen your belts at the old Mining Camp Restaurant or enjoy a Branson-style stage and dinner show. Stay and Play in Mother Nature's Theme Park!
