Admittedly, the visit was to see it as a NHP, so the interest wasn't there for the site itself. You are going quite a bit out of your way to get here. It's a cool local site, definitely if you are..... more

Beautiful! No matter where you step here you can't help but sense the history and voices of the past. The rangers here are very knowledgeable, proud and passionate about their Monument and rightly so. It's gorgeous. We spent over an hour working on earning our junior ranger badges. Walked along the Santa Cruz River. And in the center of the main courtyard a volunteer makes handmade tortillas over a mesquite fire. A must stop!!
This is a MUST SEE in Southern AZ! I took the kids and they enjoyed every second. Such a rich and beautiful piece of Arizona history. The rangers were friendly and knowledgeable, the grounds were beautifully well kept, weather was perfect, and there was a lovely woman making fresh tortillas and handing them out! A 10 minute walk leads you to the bank of the Santa Fe River, which was equally beautiful. We can’t wait to visit again!
