Homolovi State Park RV & Campground Guide

Arizona

If you’re interested in Native American history, Homolovi State Park is more than a vacation — it’s a fascinating opportunity to get a peek at research into the Hopimigration from the 1200s and 1300s. Just a quick walk from your campsite, you can watch archaeologists as they unearth historic ruins and check out educational exhibits about the life of the ancient people who once walked the same paths.

Located near Winslow in northeastern Arizona, Homolovi State Park also offers a wild high desert experience. You'll hike through the rugged and rocky terrain on the park’s trail network, watch the sunset over the distant peaks, and enjoy a spectacular display of stars in the night sky. Since this park is located in the rain shadow of the San Francisco Peaks, days are mostly dry and clear. Come any time of the year, but be sure to pack for winters that can drop down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit and summers that top out in the low 90s.
