Tucson: Unplugged!

Looking for the perfect place to unwind, catch a breath and relax listening to birds and coyotes before the holiday rush? Catalina State Park’s group campground is the spot...with no electricity...anywhere. Sure you could rev up that generator, but why? The cell service isn’t that great either. Remember when a vacation meant you waved goodbye and said, “I’ll call you when I get back”? You talked to no one while you were gone!

If you love a true getaway with hiking, biking or just tilting those recliners back and hanging up lanterns at dusk to cook your bbq dinner...well, this rally is for you.

Catalina’s Ringtail Loop is perfect for dry camping. There’s a shower/bathhouse right in the campsite so you may conserve your water if you prefer. This area is the only location in the park which offers the opportunity for a campfire, too!

Perhaps during our stay, the park ranger will offer a morning bird walk or an evening of star gazing! There are horses on site, mountain bike and hiking trails as well as interactive historical walks to ancient ruins. If you enjoy a more leisurely bike ride, exploring the park roads is beautiful. This park is a favorite of ours as well as many other 4CU members offering great accessibility in northern Tucson.

So remember: this is a relaxing rally. Time to do what you like, maybe discuss a book set in our wonderful southwest, play some cards or even work on holiday project. The choice is yours. This. Is. Camping.

We have 21 sites within the private loop. A big group shelter with one solar light and tables. A huge grill for us, too! However, we share the shower house with two hosts on the premises as well as any guests staying at adjacent smaller group areas.

Pack those half finished crosswords and dusty checkerboards. Leave your computers, satellite dishes and hair driers behind!

Should you need to have access to electric and water or a pull through site, please know that you may also choose to stay in the other campground areas known as "A" and "B." You will need to register online through AZ Parks and pre-pay the $30 per night fee. Please let us know if you are staying in these alternate sites. https://azstateparks.com/reserve/catalina/camping/
