Catalina State Park is experiencing crowding. Please choose a different park or come at off-peak hours (after 2 p.m.). Please be responsible and practice social distancing. Parking is only allowed in designated parking spots; parking on the picnic area road has been closed and main trailhead parking is limited. Once the parking lot is full, visitors will be turned away to maintain social distancing.
