Homolovi Ruins State Park [AZ]

Homolovi Ruins State Park serves as a center of research for the late migration period of the Hopi (the 13th and 14th century). While archaeologists study the sites and confer with the Hopi to unravel the history of Homolovi, Arizona State Parks provides the opportunity for guests to visit the visitor center, museum, various trails, and campground. The Hopi people supported the creation of the 4,000 acre park in order to protect the ruins of their prehistoric ancestors, the Hisat'sinom (known to archaeologists as the Anasazi) who were believed to have lived in the Homolovi pueblos.

The park offers exhibits and a podcast audio tour of the Homolovi II site (available online).
