“There's something about coming back to a place you know you'll love,” says Robert. “If certain members had a great time at a destination, they want to return because they're confident they'll have a good time.

Uncovering the Disorders of a Prospector

Yes, we all say, when I have time one weekend, I’m going to run the buckets and get my gold. I know it’s in them. Or better yet, “When winter comes, and I can’t go prospecting, I’ll do all my cleanups. It will give me something to do.”

Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, To Gold Camp I Go!

Many people join the Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association because it gives them great access to gold bearing property and very inexpensive camping rates . . . while enjoying life and hunting for gold, gems, treasures and more.

If you love to camp, then LDMA is a great choice, especially for long term camping. A great choice if you want to stay at a single camp for up to six months before moving on to your next destination.
