Homolovi State Park protects some historically significant ancient Hopi ancestral ruins near the town of Winslow Arizona. One of the nicest features of the park is its excellent campground. This is the only public campground between Flagstaff and the New Mexico border, and it is a great choice as a base camp for exploring this part of northeastern Arizona.

The campground is spread out over two one-way loop roads with one restroom and shower building in the center. The sites are all quite large with level tent pads and paved parking spurs. The park made good use of the space and placed the sites quite far apart, though the lack of much vegetation taller than a few inches makes for little privacy. Most of the sites have electric hookups and water spigots. There are free showers with ample hot water and flush toilets. The campground is far enough away from the freeway to be very quiet at all times, though the train whistle can often be heard faintly in the distance. The biggest drawback to this campground is that it can get very windy at times, with 50 mph gusts not uncommon and blowing sand a frequent accompaniment. This can be an uncomfortable place for tent campers.

The town of Winslow is about a 10-minute drive away with all services and many worthwhile points of interest, including the nearly 100-year-old La Posada Hotel with its excellent restaurant. Other nearby highlights are the Meteor Crater site, Petrified Forest National Park (which has no campgrounds or lodging), and the Hopi reservation about an hour north.
