Lost Dutchman's Mining Association

What Is LDMA?

Since being established in 1976, the Lost Dutchman's Mining Association (or LDMA for short) has been providing gold mining & campgrounds where men, women, and their families can enjoy the vast outdoors, meeting new friends, and prospecting for gold, gems, and hidden treasures.

LDMA Membership Benefits

The LDMA gives you benefits that no other gold mining or camping/RV club offers . . .

  • Use of private deeded mining properties and claims! And best of all the gold you find is yours to keep!


  • LDMA owns the Property, therefore you can camp/stay up to six (6) months before moving to another property. (Some restrictions may apply - subject to change!)


  • LDMA Membership covers you as the “primary” member, spouse/significant other and kids/grandkids under 18-years old. That’s not all! You are also able to bring up to 4 guests too! (Some restrictions apply!)


  • A Lifetime Membership both in the LDMA and GPAA which includes the Gold Prospector magazine, Pick & Shovel Gazette and the GPAA Claims Club Membership Mining Guide .... all for life! (No longer have to renew your GPAA Membership each year!)


  • LDMA Camps have a “reservation system” in place for those who like to plan their adventures! Otherwise it is a “First Come, First Serve” policy on availability.


Camping on all LDMA properties/camps are subject to a daily camping fee. (Ask about DISCOUNTED Rates!)


  • Every Camp/Property is unique in itself and has its own “personality.” They are “mining camps” but may have different amenities, such as: full or partial hook-ups (daily fees apply), restroom/showers or portable toilets, club house &/or meeting area, dump station, trash service, etc.


  • Some Camps have additional Access to Exclusive Claims for LDMA Members use Only. Check with Caretaker upon arrival for details.


  • LDMA Member Exclusive discounts on Events and Special Offers.

What Do I Get?

LDMA members can prospect and/or camp on deeded, patented properties such as Stanton, Arizona, a gold rush town north of Phoenix. Or, there’s our Scott River property, deep in the lush forests of northern California, where fog often drifts through the trees. The Klamath River itself provides gold-rich gravels in an unbelievably beautiful setting. An LDMA membership is something that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.

How Long Is My Membership Good For?

Your Lost Dutchman's Mining Association membership will last you a lifetime! All LDMA memberships are lifetime memberships in both the LDMA and GPAA. This also means that you can stay at one of the many LDMA properties and bring your family along without having to worry about membership expiration.
