The site here and the National Park facilities around it are somewhat small, so I would recommend this for quick excursions--or an interesting detour on a trip between Phoenix and Tucson. You would have to be an avid reader of museum displays and good at...More

It was an excellent place to have lunch and learn some history. You can rent a kitchen area. There is a 10 dollar fee to get into the fenced area where the ruin actually is, but it can be seen from the parking lot.

Learned lots about the early dwellers and effects of modern development on the environment and water supply. Well worth the visit.

The Visitors Center was very good and had some excellent displays. We then walked out amongst the ruins and could get u,,beside the multi story ruin. There were excellent story boards explaining the ruins and life of the ancient peoples.

We always check if there are any National Park Service sites when we travel and this one did not disappoint! It was worth the drive and easy to find. The admission was $10 per person which seems a little high but we had the NPS...More

I suggest contacting the the monument site. I would tend to think not as some areas are rather fragile and are roped off.
