Homolavi Ruins State Park is just north east
of the city of Winslow. In the 13th and 14th century,
the Hopi Indians considered Homolavi part of their homeland.
Over the centuries, scavenging and the introduction of
new people including the Navajo and Europeans looking
to profit from the remains of artifacts at Homolavi prompted
the U.S. Government along with the Hopi indians to set
up Homolavi State Park, which opened in 1993. Now the
site is an area to research the Hopi migration to the
area and several trails lead throughout the area for vistors
to inspect the ruins.
The campground has 53 units with
most of the amenities one would need including showers, a dump
station, water hookups (April - November)and a visitor center
with a bookstore and exhibits.
are several hiking trails (wheel chair accessible) that wind through
the peublo ruins and petroglyphs. Visitor Center hours are 8:00
a.m. - 5:00 p.m. After 5:00 there is a self-pay station.
Winslow drive east on the U.S. Highway 40t to exit 257 turn
