A Historic Site
Hualapai Mountain Park (pronounced “Wah-lah-pie”) is an Arizona State Park that has something for everyone. Named by a local Native American Tribe from a word meaning “People of the Tall Pines” in the late 1800s, the park was redeveloped in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps under President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal program, giving it the roads, camp sites, pavilions, hiking trails, and recreation areas that we’re still using today.
