Very interesting and well-maintaited site. The combination of Sunset Crater and the lava flows and the pueblo ruins at Wupatki was a "two for one" experience. I loved that you could climb through the ruins unlike other sites that we had visited during our trip.

The last day of our visit we decided to see the Wupatki National Monument. There is a lot of driving for this park. We started at the visitor center where we visited the ruin behind the vistor center. The visitor center has a lot of information and a pretty good gift shop. I was able to buy some cute books...

Visited with my wife and mother as we were checking out areas around Flagstaff on vacation. We had seen pictures of these dwellings and were interested to learn more. The information offered was educational and a bit surprising to us. Getting to the exhibit is a little out of the way, but can be combined with a trip to the... More

First of all, it's a great little drive through some cool sights. How often can you see landscape full of volcanic rock and hike through it, as well as visit ruins from 1100-1200 AD? Worth the trip if you love history or science. One thing, when on the 89 stay on it until you see the signs for this. The... More

This National Monument was very well maintained and the rangers offered a trail guide to help you to understand what you were looking at. The pueblo was in fantastic condition.

I have driven past this several times, expecting it to be another pile of rocks. When I visited the site, it was a super pleasant surprise. The ruins are far better preserved than many that we have visited. This is really a treasure that deserves much more recognition and appreciation.

This is a hidden jewel worth driving to if you are in Flagstaff area. It was not crowded ,but had very scenic topography. Lava fields are amazing!

Are our National Parks great or what?... If you are coming from the south, be sure to take the brief detour to the right to visit Wukoki Pueblo on its rocky outcropping, before touring the visitors center and the other pueblos
