The Park is good for a day trip to see what the area culture was like. Enjoyed walking and reading about the ruins. Information about the plant life was very interesting.

I rated this a four due to the fact the park is quite small. Even if there was not more historical sites to see, It'd be nice to see more nature in the area. Nice information. State park guide was on site to answer questions.

I spent between 1-2 hours there (I also like the indoor exhibits). We did not have chance to visit Tuzigoot.

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.

We traveled from Prescott and did not stop in Jerome, but we did the castle and the well in about 2-2.5 hours. And you cannot go up into the castle. Walking tours stopped when geologists deemed it unsafe.
