Such an awesome piece of history showing how these ancient people lived. Short walk with shade and a very informative visitor center.

This is an interesting spot to visit. You walk a trail from which you can take some very cool pictures of the cliff dwellings.

We were amazed as we walked along the trail and observed these dwellings nestled along the Cliffside. The views were spectacular; just beware of the rattlesnakes!

Grew up in AZ so had to take the gf here. She enjoyed leaning all about the Indian tribe the resident for over 100 years. Kids will enjoy this!

The building is amazing. It's hard to imagine that it is over 700 years old! If you want to take photos, definitely bring a zoo lens. You can see more details of the building that way. The park is well maintained. In the fall, this place is stunning. Our family took our Christmas photos in front of the birch trees.

One of the most unique places I have seen....a village built into the rocks....amazing.....cool history and it is crazy to think that "primitive" people built this or even thought of building this village......very worth the trip to get here to see.

This is a wonderful place where you see the building of the past over 700 years ago. It is most interesting looking at these most wonderful building in the rock. How our ancestors must have worked is unbeliveable and lived and raised families here as well. It was a blazing hot day but there were seats to rest. There are... More

The castle is very neat to see, but you only see it from a distance. It is $5 to visit and a good one time trip. I have heard that Montezuma's Well is a better, and free, trip than the castle. Even so, I am glad I saw the monument.

Phenomenal experience, can't imagine what it took to built this. The Park Ranger, Sam Smart gave us insight into the rooms, as he had been inside. It is one of the greatest thing I have ever seen. Compares to Mount Rushmore, which we toured last year. A must for all Arizona tourists and locals to visit. Walk-able by everyone, handicapped... More

This park has been very well kept and maintained. The self-guided tour is fascinating and very thought provoking. Really helps you understand what life for the early native Americans must have been like. Made a nice little side trip on our way back from Flagstaff to Phoenix.
