We needed to see where and how the ancient native tribes lived in the Verde river valley. They picked a perfect spot to inhabit, looking at the area now. We can only imagine how they existed and only guess why they left some 500+ years...More

I recently took a trip to Tuzigoot National Monument while spending a few days in Sedona. It was a quick easy drive from Sedona and well worth it if you enjoy learning about early American Indian history. A quick easy walk to the remains and...More

The Sinagua tribe built and expanded this settlement between 1000 and 1400 AD. These Indian ruins are typical in that they tell the story that after so very long, the people moved on. Why? Was it that the environment changed or did another place spring...More

The ruins and history behind them are important to preserve and understand. Plan on 30 minutes inside learning about the site, then venture outside (full sun) to walk around in/on the ruins. Unless you have a National Parks Pass, it is quite expensive ($10 per...More

First visit for me, and I spent about an hour strolling around the pueblo ruins and taking photos. This is a nicely maintained complex of stone masonry that is fairly homogenous in terms of the type of stone and size of rooms. Within the 110-room...More

We were on our way to the Jerome ghost town and decided to stop at Tuzigoot for a quick visit. It offers an interesting history of Native American culture in the museum and the walk through the ruins is brief and worthwhile. If you are...More

Tuzigoot is not very big but to me is interesting. Depending on your level of interest you could spend 30 minutes to 2 hours here and get a lot out of it. Not very big but interesting exhibits in the visitor center. The walk up...More

The ruins are interesting and easy to view, as the entire area is paved. There are many informative signs around the property, and the visitor center is staffed by knowledgeable people and houses some interesting artifacts. There is a small gift shop for souvenirs. There...More

The lake is difficult to reach, but can be approached from either the Tuzigoot NM side or through a trail at the Dead Horse Ranch State Park. The latter is a better, more scenic route. Either way, the lake is surrounded by... More
