Feb 23, 2020 - Catalina State Park Feb 20 - Feb 23

Catalina State Park is a park that we enjoyed and look forward to on another visit when we would schedule a longer stay. All of the rv sites were huge, spread way apart from each other. The park is a go-to park for day use visitors near Phoenix with easy to challenging hiking and equestrian trails in the foothills and those that go higher up the mountain. In fact, there is also a special rv campground for the horsey set with big spaces for their horse trailers and trucks as well as a nice barn with inside and outside stalls for the...
