Located along the Little Colorado River
, this is Arizona's first archaeological state park, consisting of four major pueblo sites thought to have been occupied between 1200-1425 AD, as well as lithic scatters, pit houses and other sites of interest.
Archeologists work in the park in June and July and special archaeological exhibits and programs are offered. The establishment of Homolovi Ruins State Park was supported by the Hopi people who hoped to preotect the ancient sites that had belonged to their ancesters, the Anasazi who used the area as a stopping grounds during their annual migrations. The park was established in 1986 and seven years later, the park was first opened.
A campground has back-in and pull-through sites that can handle large RVs, restrooms and showers, dump station, potable water faucet, electric hookups, picnic tables, grills, and tent pads; picnic tables with shade ramadas are located along the main park road.
Recreation includes interpretive, hiking, and equestrian trails.
A visitor center offers information, exhibits, and programs daily 8am-5pm, closed Christmas Day. Guided tours are available. The park stay limit is 15 days.
