Homolovi Ruins State Park, Arizona

For nearly 200 years before they migrated to join the Hopi people on the mesas of northern Arizona,  ancient people lived on the banks of the Little Colorado River, growing food and cotton in the rich, sandy soil.  They built four major pueblo style villages and carried out their Katsina ceremonies as their population grew.  Today, visitors can experience the quiet solitude of this high desert prehistoric settlement in an Arizona State Park of over 4000 acres, with paved roads, self guided tours of excavated features including an excavated Kiva and petroglyph trails.  Visitor center with gift shop and museum,  and special events.  Archaeologists may be working, and docent tours may be available. Operated by Arizona State Parks and the Hopi Tribe.  Beautiful modern campground available in the park with spaces for RVs and tents,  showers and bathrooms.  2 miles north of Winslow on AZ Highway 87.  Nominated by and recommended by the Arizona Archaeological Society which performs stabilization work of the ancient walls during several weekends each season.
