This is an easy hike, we paid the $10 fee to park in the parking lot, although it's not a far walk to the creek if you prefer to save $10 and park outside of the entrance. There really are beautiful views of Cathedral Rock and great photo ops. I thought the stacked rocks were pretty cool. It was too... More

We knew of the $10 fee in advance. We went ahead with our visit because we know it costs money to maintain the facilities. Unfortunately, we could not use the bathrooms on site because our stomachs were not strong enough. And we are campers and have used many composting toilets. So we were disappointed.

Not much here. Surprised people love it. Did not find much to see. At all. Least favorite stop in Sedona we did in 3 days. Waste of $10. Really surprised some said better than red rock state park, which we did not make it to... But guess we did not miss anything there.

This well maintained state park has a large picnic area and a couple of unguarded swimming holes on the Oak Creek, a fairly cold stream. Stroll around, follow the paths, and you get some really nice photos of the surrounding red rocks. Highly recommended as a short and easy place to hike. Cost $10 to get in, with a map... More

Not a great place to go right now because of the fires. The water is muddy. It is a great place for a picnic and playing in the creek and hiking to see views of Cathedral Rock.

You have seen the many photos of Cathedral Rock reflected in Oak Creek ... this is the photo spot but it will cost you $10 to enter the park. Grab your camera and swim trunks ... you can jump in the watering hole, slide down slick rock, take photos, and build a cairn in the vortex area. RECOMMEND: ask a... More

Loved the area, great hike by water. Lots of opportunities to walk and swim in the creek. It wasn't much of a secret so recommend going earlier in the morning to make sure you find a parking spot. Otherwise great to go to either as a couple, family or by yourself.

Thanks to the help of other trip advisor folks, we knew about this place. We LOVED it. We went here because Slide Rock was closed and it ended up being a great day for us. We swam, hiked and swam some more. It was really beautiful and having the option to jump in the water when we were hot was... More

Crescent Moon is a great spot for all ages, with a spectacular red rock view of Cathedral Rock. There is a swimming hole as well as many slippery rocks to slide on. Up the river is another swimming spot and views. Lots of trees, water to splash in or swim in. We often go to Crescent Moon instead of Slide... More
