Arizona’s 34 state parks have something for everyone—from contemplative nature walks to stargazing to camping. Here’s an abbreviated look at some of the more niche offerings to add to your bucket list.

Best Arizona State Parks for Wildflowers: As you travel I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson, you can’t miss the 1,500-foot distinctive rock formation of Picacho Peak State Park. The peak is obvious, but hiking the trails, especially during spring, will be nature’s eye candy—a blanket of Mexican gold poppies as far as the eye can see.

For more wildflower viewing, Catalina State Park near Tucson is home to around 5,000 saguaros. Between February and April, lupine, desert chicory, penstemon and more wildflowers bloom into vibrant color.

You can find here other great Arizona State Parks for hiking, family fun, water sports, stargazing, history, camping, fishing, and more.
