  • The wife and I stopped here on our way from Tucson to Phoenix. This is a very interesting place to visit. The overall area makes it very easy to explore in a reasonable amount of time.  more »
  • Visited this site early May, 2017. I was there early morning on a real clear day. Very quiet. The walk to the ruins from the visitors center is short and very easy. The ruins are quite impressive. It ...  more »
  • We almost didn't stop here because we thought it might just be a tourist trap. We are so glad we did though! Absolutely in awe of the fact that this structure has survived for so long. The giant canop...  more »

  • I had read up about the park before going there, so I knew not to expect anything very large. It met my expectations, and it was an interesting but brief visit. The visitor's center is nice, there is a good video to watch there, and the tour guide was informative. I wished there was a bit more area to hike but I understand that this is a sensitive cultural resource and therefore the land is protected. Nice place to see if you are nearby but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to see it.
  • My kids and I enjoyed it. There was a $5 fee per person. We watched a short movie on its history, viewed the inside exhibits and got great pics of the ruins. Suggest going when the weather is cool as it gets hot walking around outside.
  • Quick stop with my two boys, 12 and 15. They loved it! It's a lot bigger than we thought it would be. Nice museum, friendly staff. Didn't do the tour, just walked around and took photos. There was a large owl under the big canopy, that was cool to see. Nice and quick stop, use the restroom (clean), and get some cool photos.
  • Very interesting historic site. There is a volunteer docent who kept us riveted for an hour with stories about the ancient natives. Great book and gift shop also. Well worth the trip and entry fee.
  • As far as monuments go this has been the smallest so far, but the house is grande! They have a shop to if you want to get some souvenirs. Definitely worth a stop if you are passing through or live around it.
