As part of a longer roadtrip through TX, NM, and AZ, our family is considering a late May/early June trip to the Tucson area and Saguaro National Park. We'd like to visit both the east and west sides, do a little hiking (as the weather allows), and drive the scenic drives in both sections, looking for wildlife and at the amazing scenery.
What are your opinions on tent camping at Catalina State Park? We love that this is a state park campground and not an RV park. We see it has showers, which would be a deal-breaker for us otherwise. How is the cell phone service here? We have AT&T, and we'd need to be able to check in back home and for work.
Will the weather be pleasant enough for tent camping here in late May/early June? We know we'd be out and about most of the days and would be returning in the cooler evenings.
How safe is this state park campground? Okay to leave our stuff in our tent while we're away each day?
Thank you for any advice and suggestions!
