“Beautiful Vista”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stop whenever we visit Flagstaff. The views are fantastic. The volunteer working the ranger/park booth was not very personable and seemed uninterested. If you want pictures it's a nice stop.

“Lovely view.”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We enjoyed visiting the Vista. We always come back here each time we go to Sedona. The bathrooms are not working, so they have port-a-potties, but other than that it was terrific.

“A Desert High”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The view is stunning and depending on the season, there will be new sites from one week to another. The wildflowers are magnificent with purples, oranges and pinks. the light changes throughout the day to reveal more and different feels to the view.

“Great canyon vista with some shopping”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This vista is at the rim of Oak Creek Canyon which is a great drive in itself. Plenty of parking and restrooms. You can walk along the rim and bring your pets and kids but be careful of the edge. Not a Red Rock vista but you can get a really good understanding of the canyon and the steepness of the road. Worth the stop if only to catch your breath after driving up the Canyon or before driving down. Native Americans set up tables at the vista for some shopping.

“WOW!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

If you do anything thing, you must visit Oak Creek Canyon Overlook. We drove up I-17 to Flagstaff for the day. Then drove down 89A, stopping at the overlook. Besides saying it's picturesque, you have to see it. It's breathtaking.

I recommend driving down 89A instead of up. In my opinion, it has much better views driving down. And a stop at the overlook is a must! Make sure you have a lot of battery life for your phone or camera. You'll need it!
