If you've never been to Oracle State Park, you are not alone. Located at the northern foothills of the Catalina Mountains, this park is overshadowed by the larger, more popular national state parks but make no mistake, Oracle boasts some pretty incredible and is well worth a visit.

This wildlife refuge spans 4,000 acres. Highlights include the Kannally Ranch House–a home that was built in the 1930s and is filled with original art pieces and historic photos.
