To protect the forests during hot and dry weather conditions, Coconino National Forest will be fully closed beginning 6/23/21 and will remain closed until the area receives sufficient rainfall. This includes Slide Rock State Park, West Fork Trail, hiking trails, campgrounds, roadside pull-offs and day use areas in the canyon. This does NOT affect Forest Houses Resort as we are private property. We are open and welcoming guests! You are able to enjoy our lawn and grounds, swim in Oak Creek along our property, and experience quiet and relaxation. Highway 89A and roads to us will remain open, as well as restaurants, stores, Sedona and Flagstaff.
Thank you for helping to protect our forests and keeping Oak Creek Canyon beautiful.

Forest Houses Resort is situated on 20 wooded acres in upper Oak Creek Canyon. Sixteen uniquely designed houses crafted from native boulders and log beams feature fine views of the canyon and forest. Beneath the canyon walls and multi-colored cliffs, Oak Creek runs by the property – a clear, cool, continuously flowing mountain stream.

Forest Houses Resort

The canyon floor, 1,500 – 2,000 feet below the rim, is shaded and cooled by giant Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir.
Oak Creek is lined with lush sycamores, walnuts, alders, willows, flowering shrubs and wildflowers.

Summer temperatures are pleasant, the nights cool.
Winter brings several snowfalls as the resort is just above the snowline at an altitude of one mile.

Close to the resort are several spectacular trail walks and scenic hikes varying from relaxing to strenuous and providing opportunities to explore the unusual geological formations and vegetation of the canyon.
