Been here several times - you can visit ruin sites without having to go to the main visitors center - but you do not get to see the actual Wupatki ruin. There are several sites surrounding the Wupatki ruin and they are very cool. If you want to drive through you can without having to pay park admission. You can... More

My wife and I chose Flagstaff as our hub for visiting the Grand Canyon and other surrounding parks. Wupatki is a great short drive from Flagstaff on the edge of the Coconino National Forest just north of Sunset Crater to the east of Flagstaff and also borders the Navajo Reservation! The drive is part of the Sunset Crater Volcano National... More

The occupation sites are amazingly well preserved. The visitor center is small but the staff are knowledgeable. Loved our visit!

I read the reviews here and I wanted to try it. I don't regret it! Is fantastic. You start your day early from Sunset Crater go up to the pueblos and monuments. Bring a hat, sunblock, and lots of water, it will take you anything from 3 to 5 hours depending of your schedule. Go early in the morning, lots... More

This site gives a very good representation of life for Native Americans in the Painted Desert. The site is remote and offers five points of interest. Each site is unique and displays the features incorporated by the Native Americans based upon the landscape. The gift shop is nice. The weather changes quickly in the summer. We went from sunny and... More

Not far from Flagstaff, this National Monument is worth the trip. Some easy trails throughout and a good visitor center with excellent history and information.

This monument has multiple pueblo ruins to see. There are two that are semi-intact so you can get a bit of an idea of what it would have been like to live in them. The other 2 are definitely ruins! Stopping to see the blow hole is a must - especially on a hot day!

Hiked the paved trail around the pueblo ruins. Visited in the afternoon so we were glad the trail was short since it was extremely hot. The ranger at the visitor center was very friendly. Wish they had a cafe because there is nowhere around to find food.

We mostly went here because it was in our National Parks passport book and it was on the same road as Sunset Crater. We didn't have a lot of time to check out the ruins, but we did walk down to the first part of the ruins and check them out. They are pretty neat. You can take a little... More

They honored the senior national park pass and loaned us a guide to explain what we were seeing. The ruins have been well-preserved and give you a great view of the past.
