Pipe Spring National Monument Things to Do

  • Tour the Fort

    Half hour guided tours are offered through the ten main rooms of the fort, all tastefull preserved with period furnishings. You will notice that all of the doors and windows open into a central courtyard, and the entire fort was enclosed by a high wall.

  • Farm Animals

    The resident geese rule the roost at two ponds on the premises. Other animals include Texas longhorn cattle, chickens and horses.

  • She Found a Piano

    My oldest daughter, Allison, found a piano, sat down and started playing from the old hymnal on the instrument. Surprisingly, no one objected.

    Unless you happen to be on a tour bus, the only way to get here is by car. And this place is out in the boondocks.

    It is located within the Kaibab Indian Reservation in the northwest corner of Arizona, about ten miles from the Utah border. Just off of State Highway 389, west of Fredonia, Arizona

Pipe Spring National Monument Off The Beaten Path

  • Covered wagons

    During the days when Pipe Springs was a tithing ranch for the Mormon community, butter, cheese and other staples were produced here. These products were transported via wagon to the Mormon settlement in St. George.

  • Steers

    Although no longer a working ranch, some livestock remains at Pipe Springs. I tried to photograph the bulls, but they didn't seem to think that was a good idea. The wooden fence didn't seem like it would withstand a charging bull, so I gave up on the idea.

  • Windsor Castle

    Windsor Castle was the property built by early Mormon settlers who homesteaded the property. The only way to see the inside of the castle is by taking a ranger led tour. These tours are offered every half hour and are included with the cost of admission. Tours begin just outside the building.

  • Corral

    The corral, which is just outside Windsor Castle, was used to hold cattle and horses during the time when Pipe Springs was used as a working ranch.

  • Exhibits

    The gardens, located outside the museum, contains a half mile trail which leads past several structures, including this one, used to provide shelter from the scorching desert sun.
