Things To Know Before You Come
Please remember that the park is located in the Sonoran Desert. In the summer that means very hot and dry conditions. Even in the 'cooler' seasons we run very warm!
If you have discovered you forgot an essential- a hat, sunscreen, lip balm, etc- do check in the park bookstore for such things on sale. An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure, especially as regards sunburn or the potential for skin cancer. Plan ahead!
Did You Know?
The Casa Grande Ruins were extensively excavated and studied by Dr. Jesse Fewkes in 1906. Previously, visitors removed artifacts and took pieces of the walls and roofs as souvenirs.
