“Nice park with several well-indicated walking trails.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Plenty of huge saguaros in this park and many other cactusses.
Not many tourists - very quiet but it was very warm (approx. 87°F).

“Nature at its finest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I will never get tired of hiking in Catalina State Park. It's incredibly beautiful. I love sitting and taking in the beauty and the sounds all around. Pack a picnic and plenty of water and just sit and listen. You will be amazed at what you hear and you may even get to see some of the natures finest creatures.

“Worth the drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Another beautiful area in the Tucson region. If you like to hike, pack a daypack, some water and head out early before things heat up.
