We drove up once while we were in Flagstaff. A bit of a drive but if you want to investigate and learn about a place this is a great place to stop at. The amazing life style and how the Indians used their natural resources to build a home is awe inspiring. The Indians played a sport in a round... More

We stopped here on a road trip from Page to Phoenix. Wupatki is not a huge monument--but it was worth a stop. You actually get 2 parks for the price of one (Sunset Crater). There is a short easy loop you can walk around from the Visitors' Center to see the ruins of an ancient people. The Visitors' Center provides... More

We found this national monument by chance while driving back from the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest and it is literally at the edge. The many settlement sites scattered throughout the monument were built by the Ancient Pueblo People. The pueblos all have a distinctive deep red color and were made from thin, flat blocks of the local Moenkopi sandstone and it... More

We drove through this area and it was wonderful to be able to access the historic and well preserved ruins. The visitor centre has a great guidebook that explains all the features clearly. Well worth a visit.

It's a nice place with historical value. My kid was amazed with a blowhole in the park. We had a nice time.

Wapatki consists of 5 pueblos and is directly north of the Sunset Crater National Monument. I visited the park combined with the Sunset Crater NM, going to Wupatki after visiting the Sunset Crater. Perhaps it was because I went Wupatki second, but I enjoyed the Sunset Crater more. In fairness, I did not do much at Wupatki, which only included... More

We all enjoyed the history of the monument. The paths were accessible and the museum/gift shop was clean, as were the bathrooms. A great bit of history...don't go when it is hot outside...or be sure to bring water bottles.

Off the main road but sooo worth the detour. Drive past Sunset Crater & the lava fields. How did these ancient people survive in this harsh landscape?? The ruins were amazing with immaculate stone work, tiny, tiny doorways & high ceilings to keep the heat out. Don't bypass the Sunset Crater loop in your haste to reach Monument Valley!

We visited in December, on out way back from the grand Canyon. The road there is good but desolate. You should go to all the ruins marked, not just the main one at the center. Your admission is good for sunset crater as well. There is some up and down walking, but trails are mostly paved or good. No shade.
