This area of volcanic activity is so unique that much of it has been set aside as the Sunset Crater National Monument. Wupatki National Monument is nearby and is a four-story masterpiece of Native American stone masonry. Construction of that stone-age condominium began around A.D. 1120. At one time it contained as many as 100 rooms and housed as many as 125 people. Both Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments have visitor centers and feature self-guided and interpreter guided tours.

Amenities: Vault Toilets, large ramada, and individual fire rings with grills and picnic tables, event area with large fire pit.
