  • Great spot for a picnic and then you can dip your feet into Oak Creek afterwards to get the great photo of the river and the red rocks being reflected in it. Get here early to avoid the crowd that...  more »
  • This is a great place to get away from big crowds in town. Yes there are folks who swim and picnic here but there is enough space to spread out and get your own piece of paradise.  more »
  • Perfect spot to spend a hot summer day. Try to reach early like at 7-8. Park opens at 9. On weekends there is huge shortage for parking. Bring lots of water food and a camp house if you have. Water is cold even in hot summers so be prepared. Bring some light chairs also to sit in water. Rocks are very slippery so appropriate footwear is necessary. For kids there are small Lanes of water also. You can "try" to catch fish in water. There were lots of them when we went there.
  • One of my favorite places in Sedona! The entrance fee is $11 but I think it's well worth it. You can spend the entire day here, and there are so many different areas to swim or gaze at the beautiful scenery or hang out. It is right beneath cathedral rock so the views are breathtaking. There are picnic tables and grills galore. Very nice facilities if you need to use the restroom. Trash and recycling receptacles everywhere too. The rangers are always cheerful and helpful, and there are many trails of all difficulty levels to explore the area. There are various swim spots, and the water is always clear and nice. Family friendly, couple friendly, and dog friendly! My dog absolutely loves swimming here, and lots of other friendly dogs visit often so it's great for everyone. The nature is just gorgeous, it's so peaceful and clean and the people that come here really seem to respect the land. Highly recommend visiting, you'll have an awesome time!
