Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument Reviews & Ratings

  • Interesting. Lots of information. Great staff. If you have children, the Junior Ranger program is great. The rangers are helpful and take time to assist. We are glad we stopped. Well worth the time.

  • Interesting stop on the way to the Grand Canyon. Good geological history on the formation of the volcano fields surrounding the area for many miles around. Just a few miles outside of Prescott, AZ and worth the hour or more it takes to stop at the Visitor's Center and the Cinder Cone. If you've got a little more time, there are Native American ruins very close by.

  • I visited this years ago and felt like there was more to see. We did a couple of short hikes including the lava flow loop. It was pretty boring honestly after the first few minutes. There was a sign that said there were guide books in a box to the right but there was no box. That might have made it more interesting had they been there.

  • Very cool being able to walk out on old lava flows and seeing where the top of the volcano blew off. Really a big place, our kids thought it was one of the coolest stops on our trip. Not very many visitors, so you can really take your time and enjoy exploring the park.

  • The lava flow is amazing as if it was a recent event. We even saw the Painted Dessert while sun was going down. Beautiful!
