Homolovi State Park
Ranked #4 of 14 things to do in Winslow

Attraction details
Owner description: “Homolovi” is Hopi for “Place of the Little Hills” — the traditional name for Winslow, Arizona. Homolovi State Park now serves as a center of research for the late migration period of the Hopi from the 1200s to the late 1300s. While archaeologists study the sites and confer with the Hopi to unravel the history of Homolovi, Arizona State Parks provides the opportunity for visitors to visit the sites and use park facilities including a visitor center and museum, various trails and a campground. Several covered picnic tables are located throughout the park. Pullouts provide the opportunity to observe wildlife in this park of over 4,000 acres at an elevation of 4,900 feet.

We spent one night in the most spacious, level pull through spot with our 5th wheel, surrounded by nothing but nature, views, Hopi rock paintings, kivas and archeological treasures. Oh, and rattle snakes. Watch your step. Winslow is only a quick 15 to 20 minute drive away. You can see city lights in the distance at night and the very distant buzz of Interstate 40 and the train. The park's visitor center offers information and merchandise and a map for the hiking trails. The trails are well marked and groomed, making it easy to access the sites. The gound is literally covered in historic pottery shards. Well worth the visit!

This is a great park to visit - camping or not. We spent time in the visitor's center, watched pottery firing, and roamed the Homolovi I and II for several hours. I have never seen so many pot shards in my life and it was interesting to pick them up and examine. It is easy trail walking and a delightful grassland area.

This is a very large site, with quite a few viewing sights. Perfect to explore by bicycle or car.
Well worth some time. The visitor centre is excellent as is the campsite. A very spiritual and beautiful place quite close to a Winslow. If possible do a guided tour. There are a number of trails and photo opportunities.

The park is a mile north of I40 and is a historical site and also a very nice campground. We stayed at the park with our motorhome, the site are large with water and power. There is a very reasonable fee for the camping park and during the season there is a small fee to enter the park. In the park there are two different areas that were the homes of the Hopi people. The largest area is a couple miles past the visitor centre. The site was home of around 1500 hundred rooms that the Hopi people lived in. There are shards of pottery everywhere but don't take them, it's a crime to do so. The sites have seen a lot of digging by vandals looking for artifacts over the years.
There are nice hiking trails throughout the park. It is very peaceful at night and tons of stars.

Crazy, but these are the most unique bathrooms I've seen. There isn't a lot at the park, but the visitor center stories are good. Camping available. Good hiking.
