Located nearby the Lost Dutchman State Park and at the foot of the Superstition Mountains is the Mining Camp Restaurant. Not to be missed if staying at the Park.

"The world famous Mining Camp Restaurant opened its doors to the public in 1961. The restaurant is located at the base of the beautiful Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, Arizona. The restaurant's unique exterior is made up of roughly sawn ponderosa pine hauled from Payson, Arizona. Today, the restaurant still follows the theme of the early mining camp cook shanty.
Cook shanties and good food are synonymous, as any old-time miner can tell you. A replica of the old mining camp cook shanty sits today at the base of the mysterious Superstition Mountains, and along the romantic Apache Trail. The Mining Camp Restaurant has an interior that copies that of the old shanty with amazing authenticity and the good food is there too, in plentiful quantities."
