This is a nice red rock park with creek

We had a fine time cooling in the creek, nice shaded trees along the walk. Restrooms at the parking lot

Beautiful swimming area! The water felt great and the views were amazing. Go early since it can get crowded.

Like many outdoor places worth going to, there is a fee to get into Crescent Moon Park. I consider it a small cost to keep the place clean and maintained which it is. The park is full of huge shade trees and there are a few open spaces where people can toss a ball or a frisbee around. Picnic tables... More

This is a great area to get some relief on a hot sunny day as much of the path along the creek is shaded and you can find areas to cool off in the creek. If you walk far enough away from the picnic area and parking area you will find nice views of Cathedral Rock. Lots of rocks to... More

Almost anyplace you visit in Sedona is beautiful. If you are looking to walk within nature and even get a little wet this is a great place. I saw a few reviews complain about the $10 fee to get in, but it does go to keep up the state parks and the majority of hiking/nature places in Sedona will cost... More

Crescent Moon Picnic Area is a great little watering whole with great views of Cathedral Rock. Admission is $10 a car with up to 5 people. An extra surcharge applies for additional people. There are same day in and out privileges. The park has lush grassy area but the gem is the creek that runs through the park parallel to... More

Easy to get down to the creek and hike around the creek banks and play in the water. I layed out in the sun on the rocks with my feet in the water. One of my favorite places to relax!

I was confused so I'm going to try to clarify this for others: Crescent Moon Ranch is a picnic area at the Red Rock Crossing park area on Oak Creek in the Coconino National Forest, therefore Crescent Moon Ranch and Red Rock Crossing are essentially the same place. And, They should not be confused with nearby Red Rock State Park... More

We stopped here on the advice of a ranger at the visitor center. There is a $10 fee to get in - but well worth it. We saw several great views of Cathedral Rock and one of the renowned vortexes. The area is right next to Oak Creek if you are looking for a nice place to picnic, swim, or... More
