Follow the Oak Creek paths and you will wind you way to incredible views of the Cathedral Rock formation, and the creek itself and it's branches provide a shady walking trail. Families come here to swim, kids love playing here and the water is clear, flowing and refreshing. This ended up being a very pleasant morning. There is a basic... More

This was an incredible park and ideal for a picnic. Plan to spend the entire day here....playing! There is the creek to play in, several fields for games....great place to view Cathedral rock....the only dislike...you are not able to use the federal state park pass here and need to pay an entrance fee....I didn't mind though, I got great pictures!

Super awesome walk to Buddha Beach. Breathtaking views and an amazing time splashing around in the water.

This park was a mile from where we stayed so we visited twice. The lower park has nice trails and a visitors center. The upper park has a creek with swimming holes where you could jump off the rocks into cool refreshing water. The reflection of the mountains in the water is the most famous photograph of Sedona. Wear good... More

Not much to do in the park, not much hiking and certainly no hikes up into the red rocks, I figured hikes in red rock park would have much better hiking available.

Unfortunately, we were not impressed, and do NOT recommend this park. The Park is small, and extremely hot. There are also no new views of the rocks, or anything up close and personal. The old indian house they have seems cool from afar, but after hiking up to it, you can't actually go in. In total, I completely recommend Sedona/Red... More

my son and I love to take more than just scenic photos. Red Rock Canyon loop allowed us to get out and do some minor rock climbing for some amazingly spectacular pictures of the red rock formations. Simply beautiful! There is a $10/car fee.

This small Forest Service park is across Oak Creek from Cathedral Rock (one of the most spectacular formations in Sedona.) In the summer, it's a great place to take a dip in the stream and cool off, but any time of year it provides spectacular views of water and red rock. Note: there is a fee of $10 per car... More
