Current Covid Community Level: HIGH (Red) - Masks are required.
Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments remain committed to keeping visitors safe. We encourage visitors to follow National Park Service and CDC guidance to leared more about COVID-19. We ask to please "recreate responsibly" and "know before you go" in regards to all federal masks mandates and CDC guidance on mask usage.
Mask requirements are currently dependent upon Community Level and are subject to change. Mask requirements are based on data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for counties where the park is located. Montezuma Castle, Montezuma Well and Tuzigoot are located in Yavapai county and per CDC guidance mask requirements will be gauged under the Community Level, where Low and Medium DO NOT require masks, however a High level would make masks REQUIRED inside federal buidlings and on certain portions of the trail. We encourage visitors to visit the Covid by County website when planning their visit to the parks.
