Crescent Moon Picnic Site

Coconino National Forest Recreation, Near Sedona, Arizona

Crescent Moon Picnic Site does not offer reservations through Recreation.gov. Please take a look at the area details below for more information about visiting this location. Enjoy your visit!

Overview

One of the most photographed scenes in the southwest is towering Cathedral Rock reflected in the waters of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing. It should come as no surprise, then, that the picnic area located at that same site is as popular as it is beautiful. People come here to fish, swim, and wade in the creek, as well as to picnic and photograph the scenery. At times it can become quite crowded. But if you come early in the morning or on a weekday, it's possible to have the world class beauty of Red Rock Crossing all to yourself, or nearly so.
