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.

Stay in a Forest Houses Resort Oak House

The Oak House has traditionally been the residence of Forest Houses’ managers. It was built originally for managers Johnny and Donna Beck, whose 8 children (1 boy and 7 girls) lived there. In the 1980’s, the house was established in the resort as a guest rental.
