  • 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.

    Day Use

    Placed beside a tree-lined creek, the picnic area location offers a serene place to enjoy nature, with Sedona's famous red rock cliffs setting the backdrop.

    Crescent Moon lies in a high desert region situated at the base of the Mogollon Rim, a 200 mile long slope that ranges between 5,000-7,000 feet in elevation. The unique landscape creates erosion that has shaped spectacular canyons and buttes that make the region an appealing attraction.
