I loved that this attraction was reasonably priced at 5 dollars per person. The day that we visited was ridiculously hot, so it was even more interesting to see how natives managed to survive such a tough climate without modern conveniences. I really liked that my kids got to see this! We also bought some great flat bread from a... More

We got there just a few minutes after opening and was offered a personal guided tour by one of the Rangers who work there. I didn't get her name (although both ladies working here were equally nice) but she provided us with so much fascinating insight of the monument, its rich history and culture of the Sinigua people. We left... More

This National Park gem dazzled us with it soulful connection to our Native American heritage. Whoever built the "castle" centuries ago lived and died here. You felt the reverent power of those souls. Our visit was enhanced by Harry Seavey, a volunteer, who played the native flute for us. We were touched by the haunting sound and were honored to... More

This was so interesting. Short walk. Amazing how these people lived. Clean park. The staff was knowledgeable and very nice. There is a $5 fee but that helps support the park.

Took the family here for a day trip. We enjoyed seeing the ruins and the kids participated in the junior ranger program. They had to scout the park for certain things, fill in their book and report back to the park ranger. She asked many questions and educated them on how to care for national parks. They were sworn in... More

We stopped here with a tour group on our way to Sedona. It was just a short easy walk to look at the castle. It was fun to see but not much to look at or get real close to. The front of the castle is the highlight of the stop. There is also a gift shop on site as... More

This place was amazing. There was a small fee to get in but it was well worth it. There is a nicely kept paved trail that takes you around the area that was once inhabited by native americans hundreds of years ago in the walls of the canyon. A stream flows through the area which was their lifeline to water... More

This was our last spot that we stopped at ending our Sedona/Grand Canyon experience. Easy to find and only a $5 entrance fee, you get to walk to the Canyon where former Native Americans lived in very interesting cliff dwellings. Nearby you can see why they chose this spot due to a water source. There is an interesting visitor center... More

Ideally located right off of I-17. Such an easy stop to swing in and see. Fee is $5 a person, and does not take very long. Visitor center is a short 2 minute walk from the cliffs. Interesting to see, however, do not be fooled, as we do NOT know the reasons why they left, who they truly were, or... More

A very easy paved walk way leads to an amazing castle built into the canyon walls. Much better than other places that are similar. Even small children and old people can visit this amazing castle. It is only a short drive off the interstate.
