Was here many years ago, nice to go back. Is a national park so fee required. Knowledgeable volunteer talked about cliff dwellers, their lives and home. Beautiful scenery. Easy circle walk, good for handicapped. Worth the stop

The history behind the castle is very interesting. The volunteer provided a lot of information. It is easy to access and see. Parking can be a problem during peak tourist times.

This was always on my list of places to visit and I am so glad I finally did. It was beautiful a testament to the people that built it and lived there.

I took my boys here on a summer trip. This monument was a great stop on the way to Williams Arizona to catch a train into the Grand Canyon.

Well marked. An easy walk. Lots of information. The information center was well organized. It is a National park so there’s an entrance fee.

Back in the area and had to show our friends - yep impressed again. Plan on at least an hour and half to fully enjoy this attraction. Make sure you watch open times.

This is probably an "opportunity" stop rather than a destination. The resource that's available to you is small (a 1/3 mile loop trail that takes you to various vantage points from which you can view the cliff). There are other NPS facilities nearby (Waputki, Walnut...More

Montezuma Castle NM in Arizona is part of the National Parks System and is well worth a visit. It doesn’t take long to explore the area at tops two to three hours would be sufficient. The paved pathway is an easy walk for both young...More

I spent between 1-2 hours there (I also like the indoor exhibits). We did not have chance to visit Tuzigoot.

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.
