Wupatki National Monument - Review

Wupatki National Monument is one of the various sites preserving the pueblos or villages of ancient people. There are various scattered ruins scattered in the desert, towards the North East of Flagstaff. The pueblos all have a distinctive red color, made with the local Moenkopi sandstone. The area is 2,000 feet lower than the volcanic region north of Flagstaff. The route is equally enthralling, with it passing through the pine and fir trees and descending into the arid scrub deserts.

Wupatki National Monument, Flagstaff Reviews

  • Visited - March 2018 The ruin preservation at Wupatki National Monument is impressive. I really enjoyed being able to talk about the ruins and explore the culture of the ancient Pueblo Indians who lived here. To imagine life at the time and what it took to support a village of this size was amazing. We took time to visit more than just the ruin site where the visitor center is located and would recommend it to anyone. The ruins are easily accessible and Wupatki National Monument can be combined with Sunset Crater Volcano for a great one-day loop trip out of Flagstaff. The visitor center was great and had a wonderful variety of books for the readers out there. Lot's of interesting things for kids as well. The kids doing the Junior Ranger Program seemed to be having a fun time learning as well.

  • Worth the trip!! Wupatki is the largest Pueblo ruins site in the National Park. You enter the path through the visitors center, which is also where you pay your entrance fee or show your National Parks pass. They also have a small gift shop, restrooms, a drinking fountain, a few museum displays and drink vending machines. It's a short (but hot in summer!) walk to the Pueblo, which is very well preserved. You can walk into a few rooms and also see the ball court, meeting areas, and natural blowhole, where air blows up from underground. (This was my kids' favorite part!) You can pick up a visitors guide (buy or borrow) from the visitors center, which has a wealth of information to share at numbered locations throughout the path.

  • Great scenic route for the family. We started at the north side of the loop. So the pueblos and high desert views were spot on. We stopped at the first pueblo and loved it. We did bring our dog on his leash, even though it says no pets. We stayed on trail with him and the fellow visitors didn't seem to mind. We always clean up after him. He is family. As you cruise along the route the terrain changes from desert to mountain, or volcano technically. Sunset crater is there peaking out. The scene is amazing. Good show. Good car ride. No services on the route.

  • Ideal place for camping and short hike. Entrance fee is $25 for 7 days. Enough parking space, washroom and water fountain is available. The driving is amazing. Recommended for every one:)

  • Watpatki Indian ruins is a great Indian Ruins, it is fascinating and the ball courts are not found in many other places. It's $25.00 per car load so take a bunch of friends and family. Fee also includes Sunset Crater Get outdoors and have some fun
