Description
This park shelters the ruins of an ancient Native American village, one of the largest Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) communities found west of the Colorado River. Known as the Coombs Site, it is believed to have been occupied from AD 1160 to 1235 and may have housed as many as 200 people.

The park consists of a museum where you can see many ancient artifacts found in this area. In addition, some of the ruined walls and other structures have been stabilized and can be explored by people via short trails that extend directly behind the museum. The remains of more than 100 structures have been found here, along with thousands of artifacts.

Anasazi State Park Museum offers a museum store, auditorium, outdoor picnic areas, and an information center with maps and other information about the area, including Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. There are no overnight facilities at the museum, but camping and lodging are available nearby.

Entrance Fees
$5 per individual, $3 per seniors (62+) or $10 per family

There is no camping. It is located in Boulder, Utah, at the edge of 11,000-foot-tall (3,400 m) Boulder Mountain.
