Museum of Northern Arizona
Northern Arizona is part of the Colorado Plateau which extends over parts of Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. The museum, housed in a beautifully designed stone building, covers the natural and human history of the area. Included is a large collection of very fine examples of ancient Native American pottery. Another gallery showcases silver and turquoise jewelry created by artists from Rio Grande, Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni pueblos. A brief history of each tribe, the geology of the region and dinosaur bones fill other galleries.
The museum is accessible.
The parking lot is large enough for RVs.
An easy to access boondocking spot is located a few miles north at the Fort Valley Trailhead in the Coconino National Forest. A long gravel pulloff with room for any size RV runs parallel to a short paved road. More secluded spots may be located along the forest road.
