    Beautiful drive through the park, friendly staff all around. Road was a little rough in spots. We drove through with a motorhome towing a vehicle and had no problems. Rangers let us know where we could park without problem. Stunning views.

    Drove over three hundred miles through the Painted Desert if you want the best view all you have to do is pay the $ 10 and drive from the Petrified Forest in the Painted Desert. The road goes from interstate 40 to Holbrook Arizona. Another great route is near four corners drive route 191

    Amazing place, if you love history and nature this is a must see. If you want souvenirs though go down the road to any shop outside the park and prices are much cheaper

    I've lived in the local area my entire life and only recently got to experience the PFNP. It was amazing. I would recommend that you take your time and really experience the place and wonder. We were in a bit of a hurry but got our fill in 3 hours, I admit that I could have easily spent 3 additional hours there. Do take notice to bring plenty of water, sunblock, and a hat. There isn't any shade so be careful if you're bringing dogs. Also, the shops close at 5, I missed out on the bookstore and really regret it. Will return again for a camping trip...Read More

Plenty of photo and/or sketching opportunities. A gem in the National Park crown for sure.
