Anasazi Indian Village State Park

One of the largest Anasazi communities west of the Colorado River can be found at the Anasazi Indian Village State Park. Archaeologists believe the village was inhabited from A.D. 1050 to A.D. 1200. Open year round, the Anasazi Indian Village has a self-guided trail through the village and a picnic area that adjoins the park. The park's museum features exhibits and artifacts mostly from the site. The visitor center is being renovated and expanded to include an auditorium, increased display space, and a multi-agency information center. The park is open from 8 am to 6 pm daily, May 16 through September 15, and 9 am to 5 pm the rest of the year.
