Meteor Crater Camp

30 sites · RVs, Tents79 acres · Leupp, AZ
The dirt road that runs north from the I-40 exit is straight and relatively flat. I drove to the property in a low 2 wheel drive car with no problem. So a large RV should have no problem getting to the camp. Rainfall is very minimal. 79 acres sitting at 4900 foot high desert elevation. Stargaze with only light from your campfire. Distant mountain views (West) towards Flagstaff. The property is completely natural/primitive with natural scrub and tumbleweeds. Beautiful shallow canyons run North to South. One of the largest Meteors hit the Earth millions of years ago less than 3 miles from this primitive/ natural camp!! Yes there are pieces of that meteor, if you look real hard you might see them on property. What a great experience for your kids! I will allow you to take a small souvenir if you stay 2 or more days! Be careful those pieces are from OUTER SPACE! Also the Navajo reservation borders the property on the north, with a barbed wire fence. Meteor Crater National Landmark is literally 6 miles Southwest (as the Raven fly's). Petrified Forest National Park is 35 miles East on I-40. Walnut National Monument is 36 miles West. Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument is 46 miles West on I-40 then North on 89. There are several old Navajo and Indian Ruins and early 1900s settlement ruins within a 40 minute drive. God Speed, Have Fun and Be Carefull!

The best camping near Homolovi State Park guide

Overview

About

The name Homolovi is Hopi for “Place of the Little Hills” and they weren’t kidding. Homolovi State Park is a historic and special place for the Hopi Indians. Travel back in time through the guided tours of the “little hills” including ancient pottery and artifacts of the Hopi people. Don’t miss the Saturday programs scheduled from pottery talks to wood walks. Stay till dark for the Star Party they host annually! This place is more than just a fun time: it’s sacred grounds of a civilization that has loved the land fully. As long as you treat it with respect, you’re on your way to an unforgettable experience.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Homolovi State Park is during the spring and fall when temperatures are mild and the park's beauty is at its peak. Summer months can be extremely hot, making daytime activities challenging. Winter offers cooler days, but be prepared for cold nights. Always check weather conditions before your trip.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's official website for any alerts on closures or safety advisories before planning your visit.
  • Bring plenty of water and sun protection, as the desert climate can be harsh, especially during summer.
  • Respect the archaeological sites; do not remove artifacts or disturb the ruins.
  • Wildlife is abundant; enjoy observing from a distance and do not feed the animals.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring your own supplies in case of high visitor volume.
