A Class III Cultural Resources Survey of 7.58 Acres for Campground Improvements at the Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Pinal County, Arizona

Author(s): Sophia Kelly

Year: 2013

Summary

Arizona State Parks Development plans to install a new camping area at Lost Dutchman State Park north of Apache Junction in Pinal County, Arizona. The proposed camping area is located in the southeastern section of the park off an existing paved road. The Area of Potential Effect (APE) for the camping area construction project is approximately 7.58 acres. Because the parcel is on state land, a cultural resources inventory must be completed before construction can proceed pursuant to Arizona State antiquities laws (A.R.S. §41-841 et seq) and the State Historic Preservation Act (A.R.S. §41-861 through §41-864).

The Arizona State Parks archaeologist, Sophia Kelly, conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of the parcel as an inventory and assessment of cultural resources that may be potentially affected by the proposed campground construction. Kris Dobschuetz served as the PI. The survey was completed on July 18, 2013 and was conducted under Arizona Antiquities Act blanket permit 2013-013bl issued by the Arizona State Museum (ASM). The fieldwork identified no cultural resources. Based on the results of the survey and background research, no historic properties will be affected by the proposed construction.
