Montezuma Castle National Monument 
RV Vacation Idea: Montezuma Castle National                                             Monument




If you're at all interested in architecture, then this is one national monument you'll want to see.  The Sinagua people, who inhabited this area from approximately 1100 - 1425 AD built this five story "apartment style" cliff dwelling over the span of about 500 years.  The monument was incorrectly named when it was discovered in the 1860's by European Americans who mistakenly believed it was built by the emperor Montezuma.  It was declared a national monument on December 8, 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt.
Those interested in bird watching will want to visit the area as it is Site 44 on the Northeastern Loop of the North Alabama Birding Trail and has many species of birds to view, including tanagers, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, eastern warbler and more.
The site has a paved hiking trail about a third of a mile long starting at the visitor center that takes visitors along the base of the cliff containing the ruins.  Because of prior damage to the ruins, access inside them is not allowed.  The visitors center contains a museum with many artifacts, such as stone tools, metates used for grinding corn, bone needles and ornaments of shell and gemstone which prove that the Sinagua were fine artisans. 
While there are no campgrounds in the monument, click here for a map of campgrounds from which to choose.  


We have an RV rental location in Phoenix, AZ that makes the drive to this national monument easy. However, if starting your trip from another location is more convenient, we also have many other rental offices, so please visit our locations map to find a location that may be more suitable.

Terra Pass Carbon Offset Option

We believe in Green RV'ing!  El Monte RV offers customers a way to offset the carbon emissions from their motorhome vacation by requesting the carbon offset option. This option is completely voluntary and is a very nominal fee.  We encourage you to consider this when booking your trip!


You can request the carbon offset option when you reserve via the call center, or when picking up at the rental counter.  It's easy, affordable, and every cent of this nominal fee goes straight to Terra Pass to fund various carbon-offsetting programs.
