Petrified Forest National Park

Petrified Forest National Park presents a surreal landscape of large deposits of petrified wood. Some of these fossils have formed pointy hills, such as The Teepees; others have created fields of sculptures, and still others have helped shape rugged badlands. The park is one of the smaller in the collection of national parks, so many visitors use the 45 km (28 mi) drive through it to admire the deep red hues of wood turned to stone. A series of short trails provide the chance to stretch legs with a quick hike or bike ride. Pronghorns and mule deer traipse through the park, and birders can spot raptors, songbirds, and ground birds. Petrified Forest National Park is in Arizona (AZ). Add Petrified Forest National Park and other destinations to your itinerary using our United States day trip planning site , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Petrified Forest National Park

Since most visitors drive through Petrified Forest National Park, you won't find any developed accommodations inside the park. If you're not prepared to camp in the backcountry, pitch a tent at one of the campgrounds near the highway or bunk down in one of the travelers' motels in Holbrook, which lies about 32 km (20 mi) west of the park.
