Catalina State Park

Exclusive Services

We, personally, prefer this park over the National parks due to the fact that there seem to be more mature saguaro cacti you can get up close and personal with. Plus, the park fees aren't as expensive as the National parks and if you go during the week and not during one of their special events, there doesn't seem to be as many people. 


We enjoy taking the left side of the Canyon Loop trail as you can get some great photos of the saguaros and it's a pretty easy hike. The right side of the loop is not as exciting.

Romero pools trail is a more difficult hike but is well worth the trip if you can do it! There are several more trails for all skill levels.
