Excellent scenic drive toward the ruins. We showed up after the visitors center closed, but still enjoyed the half mile walk around the ruins. Magnificent QUIET view of the surrounding areas. Restrooms are located outside the visitors center. The park does close, so check your timeline before going. Well worth the stop!
Very cool and well worth the drive from the freeway. Easy hike from the parking lot.

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.
The website says no pets allowed.
Very pretty drive. The ruins are recreations.
This was amazing and should not be missed!
Mislocated on the Roadtrippers map. Location is east of US 89.
Was really cool thing to see. Also another ruins up the road from Wupatki. Road leads around to the Sunset Crater Volcano Park also. If you come in through the volcano entrance you have to pay or present your park card. I believe you don’t have to pay if you come in from the Wupatki entrance.
Do this one along with sunset crater! It’s amazing to see hope the indigenous people lived centuries ago.
