Alerts & Conditions

Conditions at Sunset Crater Volcano can be highly variable. We are located at nearly 7000' of elevation, so weather changes quickly and often without much warning. Check the weather before you come, dress in layers, and keep an eye on the sky. Remember that Sunset Crater Volcano is federal property, and so our buildings are subject to all federal regulations.
Current information can be found in the alerts and notices above, or by calling the park at 928-526-0502.
