Hovenweep
Montezuma Creek, Utah

Located on the Navajo Reservation, Montezuma Creek is fifteen miles east of Bluff on Utah 262 at an elevation of 4300 feet.

The area was annexed to the Navajo Reservation in the 1950s in exchange for Tribal land where Page, Arizona is now located and land that would ultimately be covered by Lake Powell. Oil was discovered near the community in the 1950s, and today the nearby Aneth Oil Field is still producing. Hovenweep National Monument is located twenty miles northeast of Montezuma Creek. The community boasts a swimming pool and lighted sports field. Montezuma Creek provides volunteer fire protection, and estimated population in 2000 was 1430.
