Indian Gardens


When there is enough water flowing here, this run offers a rowdy stomp down Oak Creek Canyon ending in Sedona, AZ.  Sedona on it's own is worth a trip but if there is a decent runoff you may want to bring your kayak and get some action in the very scenic and visually impressive Oak Creek Canyon.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Oak Creek are between a bare minimum of 400cfs and a high of 1,000cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 09504420, the Oak Creek Near Sedona Remember only watercraft are permitted at Indian Gardens.
