The indian's built their homes in the cliffs of the Verde area, 700 years ago with limited tools, and their bare hands against the elements, the sycamore trees are beautiful that surround the area.. National park with small gift shop, free entry to tour the sites. Highly recommend you take the time to visit.

We had wanted to visit Casa Grande but did not have time to make it back there on our summer trip to Flagstaff and Tucson. We decided instead to visit Montezuma Castle which proved to be just as nice! These cliff dwellings added to our history knowledge of early native Americans, Arizona and the Southwest! The park is easy to... More

We throughly enjoyed the flute player that sat outside the door of the castle. The music just bounced through the monument, and it was truly enjoyable. The markers were well explained as you had a short easy walk to the monument. There was a $10 entrance fee unless you have a National Parks pass or a Vet ID. We enjoyed... More

We again used our National Park Pass to get in to see this amazing treasure. Although you can no longer climb up into the ruins, they are visible from the shady paved walking path. The visitor's center has good explanations and displays of the timeline of the area. It is well worth seeing and gives you a better understanding of... More

In today's world full of technology and so many conveniences it is an interesting experience to stop to consider how people managed to survive and thrive under such difficult circumstances. Standing at the foot of this beautiful dwelling one must imagine what it must have been like to carry your food, water and even children up wooden ladders to reach... More

This is so worth a stop. You can walk through this monument in less than a hour and see the beautiful dwellings carved into the cliff wall. The staff are very friendly and they have a great little gift shop. I little chunk of history just off the highway between Sedona and Phoenix.

Stopped with two dogs and two kids. Great piece of American History to view. Learning about the various plants and seeing the home high on the mountain side was amazing.

Love getting this history of our country. This National Park is small but worth the stop to get a clue about the lives of the native people living here.
