    Experience life through the eyes of a frontier soldier at Fort Verde State Historic Park!

    From 1865 to 1891, U.S. Army officers, doctors, families, enlisted men, and scouts lived in a succession of army bases located in the Verde Valley. Replacing the earlier camps of Lincoln and Verde, Fort Verde became the most established military presence in the Valley. The Fort is best known for its use by General Crook’s U.S. Army scouts and soldiers as a base of operation during the Indian Wars of the 1870s and 1880s. 

    Today, visitors can experience three historic house museums, all with period furnishings, that are listed on the National and State Register of Historic Places. The former fort administration building houses the Visitor Center with interpretive exhibits, artifacts from military life, and history of the Indian Wars.

    Fort Verde State Historic Park is the best-preserved example of an Indian Wars period fort in Arizona. The park periodically schedules living history programs that offer visitors a glimpse into a significant era of Arizona’s history. In addition to the historic buildings and interpretive exhibits, the park has picnic tables, restrooms, RV and tour bus parking, and is ADA accessible.

    The park is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; closed Christmas Day.

The Verde Canyon Railroad is a stress-free wilderness adventure featuring an abundance of native flora and fauna, rugged high-desert rock faces and remarkable vistas.

This historic ribbon of rails – between two national forests and adjacent to a national wilderness area – follows the upper Verde River, a lush riparian habitat blessed with astonishing beauty. Expert narration and seasoned car attendants leave you with an appreciation of the history, archaeology, geology, wildlife and Indian lore of the Verde Canyon. Music and narration are an integral part of the trip as you make your way through Arizona's longest-running nature show ... railroad style.

    In 2010, the group of avocational archaeologists and volunteers created the Verde Valley Archaeology Center, located in downtown Camp Verde, in an effort to protect what was left of the valley's ancient people. Their museum on Main Street displays and interprets artifacts from both public and private collections, and in doing so has helped to stem the flow of artifacts leaving the valley. The centers has an active research facility that assist archaeologists and government agencies throughout the area in identifying and cataloging artifacts. And they offer a number of programs throughout the year to help educate the public and instill an appreciation for the ancient cultures that have called the Verde Valley home.
