    This provides a view of the petrified logs over a wide expanse and is worth a visit. It is near the Blue mesa and has great biews and scenery.  more »

    It is exciting to see how stone is made of wood. But I expected more from the Park. Only a few fossilized trees are available in part or just pieces of it. It's a one-time thing. I would not again visit the Park.

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.
