Wupatki is quiet, and little visited. I have been to this site on three occasions, with family once and college students twice. It is a important national resource to interpret the lives of the first Americans. Visitors will be struck by the quiet and serenity of the surroundings. Park staff are enthusiastic and willing to assist your visit. Highly recommended.

If you value history, pre-history and wonderfully preserved archeological sites in a beautiful environment then go to Wupatki National Monument. You will not be disappointed.

Experience the southwest in all it's splendor. I really feel my ancestors talk to my soul and bring me to mother earth.

Went to this park on Jan 2, 2015 just after a 20 yr high snow fall. The features were amazing. As we drove the 30+ mile loop, it was very interesting how the geology changed

Wish we'd had more time to spend at Wupatki - some very interesting pueblo sites, giving a fascinating insight into ancient settlements in the area. Well worth a visit.

Wupatki National Monument, located just off of US Hwy 89 a few miles north of Flagstaff, should be in your bucket list if you’re interested in anything ancient and ruins. Originally settled in around 500 AD and abandoned by the early 13th century, the Pueblo people left their mark on the landscape by leaving behind several fascinating pueblos. Out of... More

The place is great for outdoor and history and access fee is low. There are lots of interesting outdoor sites like the lava flows or the wonderful "praires" and forest. Outside the first part, there is the "pueblo" area, a space where old local population used to live and the remains of their village. Visitor centre is very interesting. Worth... More

Can not wait to go back and spend more time. Was only there for two hours, needed two days to see all there was and to enjoy it.

Combined with Sunset Crater National Monument, Wupakti makes a great Second half of the day even though one could spend an entire day exploring the old dwellings. Just keep in mind that there is very little shade except at the ranger station. And make sure to take the short climb to get on top of the Citadel Pueblo. The view... More

The drive and the short hikes were very interesting. Ranger was very nice and informative. Hard to believe that anyone could survive there. Such a hard life. Makes us appreciate what we have. Everything was very well organized.
