Off we departed via Flagstaff to I-40 and headed east towards Homolovi State Park in Winslow, Arizona.

 

The state park has one campground in a figure 8 configuration consisting of back-ins and pull along sites.

 

Campground: Homolovi State Park
Location: Winslow, Arizona off I-40 (north side)
Site: 24 (pull along)
Cost: $30
Services: Electric/Water (30 AMP)
Comments:  A lovely, small campground with large, level sites and great views.  The campground is easily accessed by I-40 yet far enough away to not hear traffic noise.

 

Most sites have electric and water hookups but a few sites are dry camping.  Sites are large and accommodate big rigs and most sites have nice site privacy and there is a dump station located at the campground. There is very little shade at the campground so be prepared on the hot days.

 

The ruins are located about one mile from the campground and sit along the Little Colorado River.  On a clear day the San Francisco Mountains can be seen in the distance.  The village was flooded in the late 1300’s and with continued flooding the inhabitants moved further away.  There is little left of the ruins but there are some markers where you can almost see it but you must use your imagination a lot!!!
