I'm with Brad... I don't recommend Apache Trail to get to Rooselvelt Lake...it turns into a rough unpaved road before you get there... if you want to go to Roosevelt Lake, take the hwy 60 to Globe to Roosevelt route...good roads that way.
You can take Apache Trail to Canyon Lake...it's interesting but it's a parking lot set up for RVs.
We highly recommend Lost Dutchman State Park (dry camping with water available, and a dump station) about 5 miles NE of Apache Junction on Apache Trail...a good place to base yourself to take in that area. Here's a pic of our campsite facing the Superstitions...we were there for a week over Christmas holiday '09. The 67 Caravel
across the road from us only added to the beauty of the view. (We have invited the owners to Dead Horse 4...we think they are coming!)
