Birdwatching, hiking and Hopi history brings visitors to Homolovi State Park. More than 300 archaeological sites are located in the area, and the visitor center features historical exhibits and interpretative programs year round.
With more than 4,000 acres, and an elevation of close to 5,000 feet, Homolovi is known as an excellent spot for birdwatching. Some of the birds visitors may see include the northern harrier, redtail hawks, golden eagles, kestrals, horned larks, roadrunners, ravens and burrowing owls. Hiking trails in the park are short, the longest being 1.5 miles, but many allow hikers access to archaeological sites.
All sites are protected; removal or damage can bring penalties of 5 years in prison and a maximum $150,000 fine. Most programs and special activities take place at the Homolovi Visitor Center. Covered picnic tables are located throughout the park, and the Homolovi State Park campground is open year round and offers sites for tents and RVs.
