Stoney Baynard Ruins Reviews & Ratings
Great for a quick pop by. Nothing to knock your socks off but good to learn some history while killing time. Plus, it's free. You have to pay to drive into the community but the ruins themselves are free.
If you're driving there's an $8 fee to get in to the area. There's some other stuff to do around so look into that, don't head over there just for this. It's neat but very small.
Pretty much what you expect for ruins. A bit smaller in scale than most places you'd visit but cool none the less and make the entry fee more worth while.
I love to add a lil history to our vacations. Small, quaint and relevant. Great info to bring back to my students.
Accidentally saw this place! Awsome find.
