The Homolovi Visitor Center includes exhibits explaining the archaeology of the ancient people of Homolovi. When residents of the area left, they traveled north and joined the people living on the Hopi Mesas, becoming ancestors of the Hopi people of today.
The art of the Hopi reflects this heritage. Additional exhibits tell of the continuing tradition of Hopi pottery, carving and other art forms. The work of various artists including the art of Hopi children, is incorporated in a changing exhibit.
In addition, the park maintains a collection of returned artifacts from within the Winslow area. These include prehistoric pottery wares, stone and bone tools. There is also historical art works by Fannie Nampeyo, Charles Loloma, Paqua Naha (First Frog Woman) and Helen (Feather Woman) Naha from the late 1880s to the late 1960s.

Homolovi I parking lot is located about one mile past the park campground and is next to the Little Colorado River. An easy quarter mile stroll on an old dirt road leads to the site. We are developing a trail for this site. Please follow the flagged route to avoid damaging sensitive structures.
Homolovi II Trail: ½ mile paved trail that is wheelchair accessible. The 100-yard trail allows access to the largest of the Park's archaeological sites which contains an estimated 1,200 to 2,000 rooms. It is believed that these pueblos were once home to ancestors of the present-day Hopi people. Much of the activity took place during the fourteenth century. There continue to be similarities between the architecture, pottery styles, and art motifs of the Hopi people in the north, and the prehistoric inhabitants of Homolovi.
More than 300 archaeological sites have been identified within the park boundaries, including four major fourteenth century pueblos. The visitor center provides exhibits that interpret the significance of this area.
Although there are no specific equestrian trails in the park, horses may be used on the dirt roads. Horses should not be ridden cross-country due to the presence of prairie dog towns.
Homolovi is an excellent spot for viewing raptors and grassland birds. Species include Northern Harrier, Redtail Hawks, Golden Eagles, Kestrals, Horned Larks, Roadrunners, Ravens, Burrowing Owls, and numerous other species.
