Photo detail

In Camp Verde off SR260, about eight miles east of town, is West Clear Creek in the Coconino National Forest. The swimming area is just off the parking lot and is perfect for children or those looking for a cool, wooded area to relax in a river that is not too deep. VVN photo by Bill Helm
