  • Unfortunately the forest fires limited our options within the park. The Pueblos we did see and the information was very interesting. Well worth the stop for sure.

  • This was an amazing place to visit. Walkways lead you through multiple ancient ruins of a former Pueblo city. I was awed and just wanted to stand and look and imagine the people living there. Homes...

  • Do not miss this one! 4 different areas of ruins with gorgeous vistas. Its way more than just the visitor center. So much history and being able to walk within these treasures is such a gift! Consider the America the Beautiful pass ($80 for a year of parks across the US instead of $25 entry!) Also be warned, several speed traps on the 89 driving north from Flagstaff.
  • We visited a few years ago and there are many improvements. The walkway around the ruins is wide and we'll maintained. There are laminated handouts to explain the different sights (return at end of self tour). Very enjoyable and we'll done. If you haven't visited Wupatki it is worth your time! And please donate to the park to keep it running!
