Stayed when it was 12F at night. Water was shut off at your camp spot, however electric was on. The showers were set up so that you could hit a timer for heat, but they did not work. Nice and clean, but too cold to shower in. The mens restroom had an auxiliary heater plugged in under the sink that made that room nice and toasty. Not a bad stop over as it was very quiet as the host and our camper were the only people there. Everything was clean, and the stars at night were amazing! We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We only stayed one night, but our stay was very pleasant. The campground is only a couple of miles from Interstate, making for a very easy overnight. There is some very faint freeway noise, but not objectionable. There are some sites with 50 amp service, but our site had 30 amp service, which was good. There is also water at the sites. The dump station is convenient. We had good Verizon voice and data. Satellite was not a problem as there are no trees. We did not have reservations, so when we arrived at the campground, which is a couple of miles before the Visitor Center, we just found an unoccupied site. We had planned just to register with the "iron ranger" drop slot. Just to check, I called the Visitor Center and was told that, prior to setup, we had to come to the Visitor Center to be assigned a site and pay our fee. I did get her to tell me that the site we had chosen was open and have her hold it until I could come down and pay the fee. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Winslow is only about 15 minutes away for shopping. Save up your money and have dinner at "The Turquoise Room," at the La Posada Hotel. It was fantastic but expensive. You will of course want to have your picture taken "standing on the corner" in Winslow, Arizona. Yes, there is a flat-bed truck there.

We have stayed here before but not in cold weather. The water was turned off at each site. Also, the ruts in the roads really shake our RV causing us to drive about 5-10 mph throughout the park area. Based on all of this, we will not be staying here again. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

A peaceful, quiet, secluded, and spacious campground just a couple of miles north of the Interstate. Our first evening we enjoyed a "star party", which was well attended by astronomy buffs as well as little-ones relishing a chance to stay up late.
As previously mentioned, hook ups are on the wrong side. This didn't present a problem as we carry extensions for everything. $25 seemed a bit pricy for not having septic hook up, but that said, showers and restrooms were excellent, clean, and ample.
Staff was friendly and VERY understanding and accommodating when we suffered a mechanical issue and were unable to vacate our site once our reservation expired.
The visitor center and ruins sites are respectful and well presented.
Eagles (music) fans must check out "Standin' on the Corner Park" in Winslow, fashioned after their song "Take It Easy." Well worth a side trip to town.
This is a clean and well managed AZ state park, and we would stay here again. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

On the downside, and for whatever reason, there was no AT&T data, and in fact WiFi in the entire Winslow area is absolutely terrible - McDonalds, FlyingJ, public library, etc. (to include our own hotspot). This of course is no fault of the AZ State park - just a spoiler for the "Internet dependent".

We really enjoyed our overnight here, and thanks to this site for listing it. We typically stay at those yucky overnighter RV parks when cruising I-40 through here, so this was a great alternative, though slightly more expensive at $25. It's a bit of a drive off I-40 and all the way down the park roads to get here, but we found it worthwhile. We had to go even farther out of the way to get to the visitors center to pay the fee. The camp has 42 very spacious state park style sites, most with views of the surrounding grasslands and San Francisco Peaks. Water and electric utilities are on the opposite side but small RV's can easily turn around if necessary. We carry extensions, and since there's no sewer hookup (there is a dump station) that's no problem for us. Our 50-amp pull through was level, but we could see other sites were not as level; all have a picnic table and fire ring. There are some critters here; lots of anthills at our site, made us wonder how long it would take for them to make their way inside, and the ranger warned to carry a flashlight at night since snakes (including rattlers) like the warmth of the roads, especially at night. But that's Arizona. At 4,900 feet it can be warmer than Flagstaff, and it was 90F when we stayed on a late September weekday when the camp was about half full. There was no one using the park roads, however, and we enjoyed a 5-mile bike ride out to the Homolovi II ruins with expansive vistas of the surrounding grasslands. Roads have large expansion cracks at regular intervals (a few were repaired) so those with skinny tires may not like riding here. In our 14 miles of riding we encountered one car on the road, and one sidewinder crossed the road in front of me. October is apparently a busier month. Ruins are mostly rubble, so use your imagination with help of interpretive signs and visitor center displays. It's still fascinating and spiritual here. Verizon 4G worked fine, satellite good, but no antenna TV. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

What a pleasant supprise. Stayed in a pull through. Water and electric on wrong side but did not present a problem. Stayed here 2 nights but could have stayed longer. Lots of space between sites. Cool nights - warm days. Stay here and visit "everything". We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Only a few minutes from Winslow. Old route 66. Pre-Hopi sites. Most of the backin sites have a small tree on the west side.

Very nice place to stay overnight or extended stay. Area had easy access and was very secluded even though close to highway. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Roads were clearly marked and campsite easy to locate. Lot number twelve was excellent! We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for one night to break up the drive home. The campground is very quiet and serene. Host was very friendly. We were asked to limit our water usage to 5 gallons due to a water main break. We appear to have reserved the one pull-thru site with a somewhat steep front-to-back slope (I used 6 Lynx blocks to keep the tongue jack from extending too far). Great views across the endless landscape. As someone else mentioned, you can see the interstate and trains but cannot hear them at all. Despite the bright line-of-sight lights from Winslow, the night sky is very dark. Only a handful of sites have 50 amps, so do your homework if you require 50. We had good Verizon coverage and many over-the-air TV stations available. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed this state park campground and exploring the ruins there. The park is quiet and comfortable. Nearby Winslow is interesting to visit. We will come here again if we want to stay in this area. Our campsite was large with an asphalt pad. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

We have stayed here several times in the past few years. Normally it is great. This time - two things. A) extra charge for 2nd vehicle (we didn't pay it) and B) the train noise was much louder. I don't know if more trains are running thru Winslow, but it was much louder and seemed to go on a lot of the night.

The campground has great Verizon cell service, large sites, some pullthroughs, camp hosts that always seem friendly. It is a good place to stay when travelling to/from. Make sure to go to the ruins and take the short hikes. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Truck Camper.

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.

Despite being situated within sight from I-40 this is an excellent tranquil campground, with friendly host & ranger. Wonderful high plains views, ample facilities and good level placements.

The visitor's centre is well worth a visit, just like the excavation sites.

We stayed here for one night in April. We camped at Homolovi Ruins State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nice 'high plain' half-an-hour hike from campsite to Visitor Centre!
