Tuzigoot National Monument Tours

The Tuzigoot National Monument is made up of the remains of a pueblo building on a hilltop outside of Clarkdale, Arizona.

Built and occupited by the Sinagua people from roughly 1000 to 1400 C.E., the Tuzigoot village buildings include some with two or three stories. The ruins cover 42 acres, and you can see pithouses (entered via ladders through doors cut into the roof) and petroglyphs. There are other Sinagua ruins in the area, but this is the largest. There are artifacts recovered from the excavations of the Tuzigoot site on display in the visitor center.

The name “Tuzigoot” is an Apache word, and the site was named by an Apache who was on the archaeological excavation crew in the 1930s when the site was found. The name means “crooked water,” referring to a nearby river.

Practical Info

The Tuzigoot National Monument is roughly 90 miles north of Phoenix, and your best bet is to follow the driving directions on the National Park Service website (GPS often provides the wrong information). The monument is open daily from 8am-5pm, closed only on Christmas Day. Entry is $5 for adults (good for 7 days), and children under 16 are free.
