Homolovi Ruins State Park
Copyright: - Arizona State Parks
Homolovi Ruins State Park
Description - There are over 340 sites within the park, this includes campsites, lithic scatters, agricultural features, pit houses and other sites.

Attractions - This site is Arizona's first archaeological state park. Located along the Little Colorado River, Homolovi, a Hopi word meaning 'place of little hills,' consists of four major pueblo sites thought to have been occupied between A.D. 1200 and 1425 by ancestors of today's Hopi Indians. Archeologists work in the park Monday through Friday in June and July. Within the site there are special archaeological exhibits and programs.

The Little Colorado River runs through the park, providing great opportunities for wildlife viewing. Two picnic Ramadas provide convenient places to take a break. The park visitor center is the main interpretive building with artifacts on display. Additional facilities at the park include 53 campsites with electric hookups, showers, a dump station, trails, and restrooms.

Recreation - Recreational opportunities offered by the State Park are designed for easy access by all visitors and include camping, hiking, viewing the interpretive exhibits and historic sites, riding on the equestrian trails, and picnicking.

Climate - The climate of Arizona varies greatly with elevation. This part of the state experiences much cooler temperatures than at the lower elevations of southern Arizona. Expect average January high temperatures around 45 degrees and average July highs around 95 degrees. Be prepared for cool temperatures at higher elevations and dress in layers for your travels in this state of varying climates.

Location - Homolovi Ruins State Park is located in northeast Arizona, near Winslow. The park can be reached by traveling 5 miles northeast from Winslow on State Highway 87.
