About
Crescent Moon sits beneath the towering Cathedral Rock, one of the most photographed scenes in the Southwest. This day use area group shelter (also known as Ramada) is as popular as it is beautiful. Visitors will marvel at the reflection of the red cliffs in the waters of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing.

Great place to watch the sunset reflection on Cathedral Rock! Had a lot of beautiful viewing options along the creek. Definitely worth the $11!

Great place to photograph Cathedral Rock
Oct 2021
Right at sunset when the sun’s rays hit Cathedral Rock is the perfect time to photograph the red rocks. Entrance gate closes at dusk, but once you’re in, you can leave anytime.

Busy In August

Crescent Moon Picnic Site was very busy when we visited but we were able to create our own adventure. A short hike from the site revealed a rocky stream where throngs of people were dipping their feet in the water. There are some decent rock views too.

We stopped in based on the reviews. It was absolutely gorgeous. Very crowed on the day we went. Water shoes and a walking stick are recommended, it is very slick crossing the rocks. We had a super fit member of our party fall dawn. Enjoy and be careful!

Great picnic spot
Jun 2021
Great spot for a picnic and then you can dip your feet into Oak Creek afterwards to get the great photo of the river and the red rocks being reflected in it. Get here early to avoid the crowd that ruin photos.

A cool respite from the heat.
Jun 2021
This is a great place to get away from big crowds in town. Yes there are folks who swim and picnic here but there is enough space to spread out and get your own piece of paradise.

A Great Place To Bring Your Dog
Apr 2021
My pup and I had a delightful hike along the creek. It was so gorgeous! It was worth the price of admission and you definitely can spend as much time as you like during its hours of operation.

Not the View
Dec 2020
Great place to see Cathedral Rock, but the lack of water in the creek makes the view quite different from the picture shown above.

So much fun!
Jul 2020 • Family
We got there early and we had the place to ourselves for awhile! The initial flat red rocks are very cool, our son had an amazing time there and then walked up farther and found our our special area where we played in the water for hours! It was such an amazing day! Definitely a place to visit with kids!
