The name Homolovi means 'Little Hills' in Hopi, which is the original name of Winslow, AZ. Although the park is a fantastic way to get outdoors and explore the dramatic landscape of Arizona, it primarily serves as the center of research of the Hopi from 1200 to the 1300s. Archaeologists study the many archaeological sites in the area while also providing those that rent an RV in Navajo County with the chance to see the sites and learn more about the history of the area.
There are a number of trails waiting to be explored, as well as several pull-outs on the road that allows visitors to observe wildlife in the park, which covers over 4000 acres. When exploring the area in an RV rental, there are many other places of interest in the immediate area such as the town of Holbrook, the Coconino National Forest and for a taste of city life, Phoenix.
Most people come to the park to explore the two sites of historic ruins. There is easy access to these sites and a number of interpretative signs that tells visitors a little more about them and their historical significance. Before you leave, be sure to check out the famous Sunset Cemetery, which is the last remains of the 1876 settlement of Sunset, which was abandoned back in the 1800s. Three headstones stand as a reminder of those pioneers that ventured to the land so many years ago.
There are many trails that wind through the park, offering a great way to explore the landscape. By following these trails, visitors are likely to come across a number of archaeological sites, wildlife, birds, and petroglyphs. Some of these trails wind near the state park RV campgrounds for easy access.
There are a number of events that take place at the park throughout the year, with one of the most popular regular events being the star gazing nights. However, the park's signature event is Suvoyuki Day, which takes place in August. This day is filled with fun and allows visitors to enjoy the rich culture of the Hopi Tribe. It is held every year to celebrate the partnership in protecting the cultural and historical sites in the area. Visitors will be able to try the traditional husked corn snack, browse the Hopi marketplace for goods made by local craftsmen, a pottery firing demonstration, dances, and music. Be sure to check out the calendar of events before getting a rental motorhome at Homolovi State Park.
Homolovi State Park Campground offers visitors a unique place to stay, and with immediate access to the park, the adventure couldn't be closer. The campgrounds are located in high desert grasslands and operate throughout the year. It is pet-friendly, and guests have the option to choose between either a more primitive camping experience, or something a little more modern.
The majority of the campsites have electricity and water hook-ups, while some have no hook-up options at all. The back-in sites have a 30-amp service, while the pull-thru are larger and tend to have both 30 and 50-amp. These can accommodate RVs up to 83 feet, so no matter the size of your Winslow camper rental, you should be fine parking at the campsite.
A great addition to any Arizona adventure is, of course, a visit to the Grand Canyon. This incredible feat of nature is one of the most impressive in the entire world, and there are many different points along its path, offering viewpoints and information about its history. Another incredible natural wonder in Arizona is the huge meteor crater that crashed into Earth around 50,000 years ago. It is an impressive sight, stretching around a mile across. There is also a visitors center here where you browse the exhibits before taking the trail around the rim.
The town of Flagstaff is also nearby, which has a fascinating historic downtown and Visitor's Center. The town is centered around the old railroad and station and is packed with information about the town, Route 66 and more. As well as the history, the downtown area is a generally buzzing and vibrant place to explore, dotted with restaurants, shops, and bars. Heritage Square is the place to head for live music, art festivals, and movie screenings to name just a few of the events. No matter what time of year you visit, there is bound to be something going on, so camp in an RV near Flagstaff.
For those that have a real passion for history, the Museum of Northern Arizona is a must, and is an ideal stop for a rainy day, with exhibits to interest the whole family. Go on a journey through Arizona, starting with the time of the dinosaurs and the geology, to its tribes and indigenous people. All of this is contained in a beautiful limestone building.
