General Information

Anasazi State Park ruin
Copyright: - Utah State Parks & Recreation
Anasazi State Park ruin
Description - This site encompasses six acres and protects the ruins of a village used by ancient Puebloan peoples between A.D. 1050 and 1200. A small portion of the village area, the Coombs Site, was excavated in the late 1950s. The artifacts uncovered at that time, and during smaller excavations, make up the collection at the museum on site. The village is open for self-guided tours year round.

Attractions - Anasazi State Park is a heritage site within the Utah State Park system. Facilities at this site include a museum/visitor center, picnic area and restrooms. Exhibits at this park interpret ancient building styles and construction, as well as the everyday lifestyles of the Ancestral Puebloans.

Recreation - Visitors to Anasazi State Park will find opportunities for picnicking, viewing interpretive exhibits and touring ancient Puebloan dwellings.

Climate - This state park lies between the canyons of the Escalante River and the mountains of the Aquarius Plateau at approximately 6,700 feet. The region is arid with hot summers and chilly winters. The elevation of Boulder allows for quick cooling when the summer sun sets. Snow does occur during the winter, when traveling in this season consult local officials for conditions.

Location - Anasazi State Park lies along Utah Highway 12 in Boulder, Utah, between the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (south) and the Dixie National Forest (north).
