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 and Gila Monster Group areas are 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 the park ranger will offer a morning bird walk or an evening of star gazing! There are 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, play some cards or even work on holiday project. The choice is yours. This. Is. Camping.
We have 22 sites in the private loop. Our group shelter has one solar light, tables and a huge grill! We share the shower house with two hosts on the premises as well as any guests staying at the adjacent group areas.
Online Sign ups are timed and noted to assure your spot. Check must be received within 2 weeks of your online registration to hold your spot in the Ringtail and Gila Monster Group Areas.
