    Catalina SP -- Tucson, AZ

    Just finished 11 days at Catalina SP north of Tucson--AZ seems to know how to run a campground. Well-paved roads, clean and nice showers. $30day and no in/out fee like TX and CO. 30/50amp + water, but no sewer. We made it the 11 days with only one 'leak' of the grey tank. Dark nights and quiet, even tho only 1/2 mile from a Walmart....even saw a couple of horned toads, lots of ground squirrels.
    Would be terrific if they could control the temps down in the upper 80s instead of the low 100s.........I can imagine they are very busy during the fall/winter/spring seasons.

    Yes, I believe the in/out pass comes with a space rental at Catalina. In Texas, believe same deal. But in Colorado, if I remember correctly, it IS a $7 or $8 day in/out even if renting a space. So if staying more than ten days, or going to other parks, then it works to get the annual pass--$70. At least that is my memory from last summer at Ridgway SP.

    If you go into Catalina state park to hike, have a picnic, or day use yes they charge $7.00. But if you are camping they will give you a pass to hang on your rear view mirror so you can get in and out. We used to tow our trailer in with our Excursion and the wife would drive in the car, we would use the car cause it gets better gas mileage and leave the Excursion there. Well now they are charging $15.00 per day for a second vehicle. Motor homes with toads do not pay extra.

    Never heard of an in/out fee in CO. You pay for the number of days and get a windshield sticker that allows you to come and go as you please. There are some day use only state parks that may work that way, but I've never been to them.

    All of the Texas parks I've been to don't have an in/out fee. When you check in you are issued a pass for the windshield and you can go in and out all you want until it expires (when you check out).
