The vibe at Catalina Campground
Drop some Catalina Campground knowledge on us.
They have a power strip that they allow campers to use for cell phone charging. Don't be rude and use it for blow drying and curling your hair or they'll put it away. It's not something that the campground provides but the rangers understand that you may need a charged phone for emergencies. Also, deer, ravens, and the most beloved and endangered fox come through the campground. The ravens are very intellectual so the rangers advise you bring a hard cooler since the ravens have learned to open styrofoam. Don't leave stuff out, even a deck of cards are fair game for those rascals. While you're picking up your cards they swoop in and pilfer your camp.
Stop at Peace, Love, Juice in Tucson for a smoothie befire you head to the park for a hike. Easy hikes, great scenery, good people. I live in a van and paid the day ise fee to hike and use their shower facilities. Very nice showers and bayhroom facilities. Big RV campground has firewood if it’s a cold night. The rangers, hosts, and other staff were all very friendly, well-informed, and easy to talk to. My dog and I enjoyed the day we spent here. We did not soend the night but did drive theough all campgrounds which were nice. The overflow area is a lot like Quartzite.
