What is there to do?

Ready for some history lessons as well as some great outdoor adventure?

Just visit Homolovi State Park!

First, how about some history? Well, way back in the 14th century, in the high grassland of northern Arizona, an ancient people found a home along the Little Colorado River.

These people were called the Hisat'sinom, who stopped their migrations to till the rich flood plain and sandy slopes before continuing north to join people already living on the mesas - these people are today known as the Hopi.

If you want to learn more about the history of the lands during your visit, the Homolovi Visitor Center should be your first point of call!  Here you can explore exhibits that explain the archaeology of the ancient people of Homolovi. You can see examples of Hopi pottery, carving and other art forms. 

Of course, a day out to an Arizona State Park is always full of adventure too, so let's explore that! There are a number of trails that you can take, all at reasonable length, so the whole family can enjoy them. It's a great way to really get out into the beautiful nature and try and spot that wildlife!

An amazing family day out in Homolovi State Park, and with camping too, there's no reason you can't stay for longer if you want!

Kids can become a Junior Ranger! Just pick up the pack from the VC, or download online, then during their day they just have to complete the booklet, have it signed and they are officially a Junior Ranger!
