One of my favorite places here. I always take visitors to explore this magnificently preserved site. I love Lomaki, too, which is one of the first ruins, just across from Wupatki. Be sure to drive the entire loop road!

My wife and I visited Wupatki and Sunset crater (one entrance fee!) while driving from Sedona to the eastern entrance of the Grand Canyon. The Wupatki site was great. Very beautiful and fascinating pueblos, combined with breathtaking views. The rangers staffing the visitor centre were extremely helpful. Be sure to borrow the guide so you can have additional learning while... More

Sister park to Sunset Crater, this is a well preserved ruin of the Sinagua tribes circa 1100-1200 a.d. Very fascinating - kids of all ages will enjoy the up close views of these homes, ball courts, ceremonial circles and blow hole. Cost is $5.00 and will allow entrance to both parks - just show your receipt. Take a hat, sunscreen... More

This was our second trip to Wupatki. The ruins are very accessible, and are unique from others in the area. The entrance fee is steep, but if you are seeing the Grand Canyon and other parks in the area, buy and Annual Pass and entrance is free. You will not be disappointed if you include this in your plans.

We loved visiting the ruins, and my grandson received another badge for his Jr Ranger program. The surrounding mountains and scenery was magnificent. Everything is alittle far of a drive but the views were awesome.

We visited Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater and Wupatki all in the same day. Ranking the 3, I liked Wupatki, Walnut Canyon and Sunset Crater (in that order). I was very surprised at how much I liked Wupatki since my research had me thinking that I would like the other two better. If you only have time to do one of... More

We spent half a day and visited Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater and Wupatki. All are worth a stop if you have time and interest. You can pay one fee ($15) and see both Sunset Crater and Wupatki and drive the scenic loop, stopping at interesting sites all along the way. I must say, however, that the docent/ranger(?) who checked that... More

What a wonderful drive through this was. Pueblo indians lived in this area about 700-900 years ago. The old volcanic flow is looks as if it was recent. A must do if interested in Native American history.

We traveled in Winter, which of course, is much less busy. That is why we travel off season. But it IS beautiful country. I... More

To be fair, we sandwiched this into an already full day and the long drive off the main road and time limitations impacted our view on the ruins. They were interesting but given the other things on our itinerary... not sure it measured up against them.
