2013 New Years Rally at Catalina State Park, AZ
« on: June 19, 2012, 07:26:33 PM »
2013 New Years Rally at Catalina State Park – 6th Annual

Catalina State Park is in the Oro Valley just North of Tucson.

Most folks arrive a day or two after Christmas and leave January 1st or 2nd but some will be there before Christmas and some will stay later. As usual this is a casual rally with most activities planned by the group at happy hour. We usually have a few meals out and a few “field trips”. Happy hour will be every day weather permitting.

We are in site B33 which will be the site of the happy hour. This is on the south side of the Campground B. All sites have 50amp power and water. There two dump stations: one just after the Check-In Booth and the second is in campground B.

Reservations at: http://azstateparks.com/Parks/CATA/index.html or by phone (520) 586-2283.
Cost of the park is $25.00 per night W/E (50amp).
There is a $5.00 non-refundable reservation fee.

Catalina State Park sits at the base of the Catalina Mountains. The park has nearly 5,000 saguaros as well as many other desert plants. You can hike into the mountains. There is a relatively easy hike that has become a tradition for New Years Day. You can also take a beautiful hike up to the Romero Pools – but I do mean UP. The park is also home to many varieties of birds.

Just outside the entrance to the park is a new shopping center with many store and several restaurants – including Olive garden and Red Lobster. The is more shopping just a few miles south on Oracle Rd.

But inside the park at the campground you are unaware of the outside world – it is nearby, but far enough away to allow for a peaceful setting with beautiful mountain views.

If you make reservations please post them here in this topic so I can keep a list.

It will be great to see all of the framily as except for Bill, Jim, Don, their wives and a few others we met last summer it has been a dry spell for us.  I'm optomistic that all will be well and both of us will be healthy to spend the winter down south.  Winter 09/10 was the last trip south, too long!!

Do you have any specific part of AZ in mind?  Nearly all of the hundreds of RV parks in AZ have monthly rates.

If there is anybody leaving from Colorado please let us know.... We would love to caravan down....We are are also looking to go from the Rally to Lake Havasu/Bullhead city are to winter over.... Any suggestions....?  We'd like a park that is not a "Resort".  Something close to or on the water where folks are not stacked in like cord wood....

You can contact us at my email address.....

Looks like my original posting got lost in the server shuffle -

Put me down for B-25, 12/26-1/2.  With luck I can get the time off from w*rk (that 4 letter word).

Hey Ken, check out Liza & Rays friends Mike and Laurie.  Looks like their site is the restrooms, as I don't find a site 31.  Perhaps site 30 is meant.  Just being picky, as I have nothing better to do, but like a mother hen, I like keeping all the little chicks close by..... ;D ;D ;D
