This park is very unusual and difficult to rate. It is very remote, the sites are spacious, and the landscape is minimal. We were pleasantly surprised to find a 50 amp hookup at our site, and of course there are no sewer hookups. We found that the park employees were not very forthcoming with information about the park; we felt that we had to ask the right questions to get answers. It WAS a unique experience to camp here, but we would not return. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go see the Meteor Crater west of Winslow.

Very nice park, great park hosts.

This park was closed for a few years, recently reopened.

The restroom/showers are quite dated, but the hosts keep

'em very clean. Sites are far apart.

Removed from highway 20 about 2 miles, you can see it but not hear it.

Easy into Winslow, which is about 1 full day to tour.

Site was macadam, almost level.

This park has the reputation of the quietest in the AZ system.

Stargazing is 10+. Highly recommend. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent place to stay. You are basically camping on a desert plain. The sites are paved, with enough room for your rig and your toad. You can see for miles from your motor home window. We are self contained, so only needed electric. This was the perfect choice of campground for us. OTA television yielded 26 stations. Verizon signal is a very strong 4G...no problem getting on line.

We enjoyed camping here. It's a pretty desert area and there is a lot of room between spaces. There are a few trees here and there but nothing for shade. You have to go to the visitors center first if you get in before 5 PM to register. You can self-register at the campground if you get in after 5. Kind of backwards, I think, and inconvenient. The price of $25 with no discounts available for seniors or anything else. We did get electric and water hookups which was nice; there is a dump station. We could hear a train going all night, which was a little distracting. At the season we went, there were lots of little stickers in the ground and our dogs got them in their feet and so did we in flip flops. I'm thinking this might be seasonal. There are very nice picnic tables and the spaces are flat and easy to park in - lots of pull-throughs on the outer edges also. If you interested in archeology, you might stay longer but if not, you might not stay too long. We would stay here again. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I like state parks, especially when sites are spread apart and have a fantastic view, so in spite of this one's needing some tender loving care, I am rating this place highly. Sites are especially wide so that I could park in the middle and walk around on the asphalt even with both slides out. With sites so spread out, it was amazingly quiet here--just far enough from the interstate to be convenient but no noise. Wonderful view from every site! Hopi ruins were worth seeing. Good Verizon service also. Road into the campground has some very rough cracks between sections, but they have repaired the road to the visitor center, so just need to fix this one. I will definitely come back here. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

No sewer at site, but dump station in park. Very nice ranger station around 1/2 mile from park with welcoming ranger. Watch for rattlesnakes in area. Ranger was good at taking care of one outside of station. Very windy the night we stayed, but nice fire ring if it were more calm. Looked like great hiking if that is your interest. No ranger at campground entry. Had to go to main ranger station to log in. 3-4 mile drive to historic Winslow, AZ. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

We paid $15 for W/E site last week of Oct. Park was only 15% occupied. Spent entire day touring dwellings and hiking. These ruins are not spectacular but interesting nonetheless. CG is flat with no shade trees. Sites are concrete and level. Not all sites have W/E but appear identical; only way to tell is to look for sign on electrical box that indicates if power is available or write down site #s at CG entrance of sites with W/E.

Someone said this was a gem of a park and they were right on. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the great welcome at the office to the nice camp host. Super quiet with beautiful vista views. We will definitely stay here again on our way back home. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Such a beauty, set in high plateau grasslands. Sites are well spread out, some have "sandboxes" to pitch tents on soft ground. Clean restrooms, showers. Water to all sites, elec to many. No hwy noise, some lights from distant operations. All paved, no dust. Near ruins, lots of trails. About an hour east of Flagstaff. Would stay here again for sure.

The campground is excellent but don't miss the archeological features. Not as complete as some of the more famous ruins but lots of interesting shards that folks find and leave on a rock for others to enjoy. A tour of Homolovi II is worth the short drive. Not much shade but the trees are growing, so a few sites have enough to screen a bit of the sun. Sites are paved and mostly level. Camp host was most helpful. She came to our site to sign us in so we did not have to drive up to the visitor center. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice State Park right off of I-40 at a good rate. No sewers but has a dump station. Back in and pull up in a side of the road asphalt sites. The pull up sites have hookups on the wrong side but you can easily reach them. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

As others have mentioned, this park is an undiscovered gem. About 2 miles off I-40, it's quiet and uncrowded. The showers were spacious, hot, and had good water pressure. They were not coin op, like some state parks' showers. The stars are absolutely amazing in this rural park. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

November rate is $5 less as water is frequently off due to freezing conditions. Rate is less without electric. Hidden Gem. About a mile straight north of I-40 easy access. No highway noise. Campground host lives on site. Rate is cash/check. Reservations available, but must be made more than 24 hrs before arrival. After that, first come, first serve, but CG was almost empty during our two stays. Park/level sites all fully paved. All pull-through sites have 50 amp. No sewer, but dump site available at entrance to CG. No cable TV, no Wi-Fi, but beautiful park with starry night sky and huge sites. Stayed here in October and again in November and this would be our first choice anytime we are in north eastern Arizona. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice state park, no frills, but beautiful scenery and nice long pull-through sites. It's a little distance to Winslow, but not bad. Actually, it was nice not to have city lights spoil the night sky - we felt like we could see every star that is up there! We enjoyed the area so much that we extended our 1 day visit to 2 days. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem! At 4,900 feet and set in 4000 acres of high desert scrub this is a very well maintained State Park. Staff were friendly and helpful at check in, and the hosts came to our site to check on us as well. Roads and sites are paved. The sites were level, and pull through, big rig access was good. Very quiet, lots of space and privacy between sites, ample space for the towed, picnic table, grill, with wonderful desert views.  Bathrooms were spotless. Pet friendly and plenty of places to walk your pet, but there are sticker burrs in the scrub, so better to stay on the paved road with your pet. No WiFi or sewer as per most State Parks. 1-40 is close by, and the town of Winslow is about 4 miles down the road, it has Safeway and Walmart. Winslow is a neat little town, with historic Route 66 and of course the famous "Standin' on the Corner", well worth seeing if you are a fan of The Eagles. Not a lot to see at the Homol'ovi Ruins, but the walk to and from them was lovely. As all the previous reviewers have said, this is a hidden jewel, and few folk were here on our visit, such a shame. We would stay here again. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.
