This day use area (now picnic sites) is sheltered by a stand of cottonwoods and Arizona sycamores clustered on the banks of Wet Beaver Creek. The cool, clear waters of nearby Wet Beaver Creek provide an excellent place to fish, hike, swim, wade, and bird watch. A trailhead within easy driving distance provides access to hiking trails into the Beaver Creek Wilderness. The road that leads to the day use area is one of the Coconino National Forest's scenic drives. There is a free picnic area across FR 618 from the day use area.

The area beyond the oasis nurtured by the stream is upper Sonoran Desert. Its characteristic rock gardens of prickly pear cactus and banana yucca provide a sharp contrast to the lush riparian zone along the creek. Wet Beaver Campground is located just three miles of paved road from I-17.

2014 fees are as follows:

Picnic Site: $14 per vehicle, per day (8 persons)

Picnic Site if arriving after 1 p.m.: $10 per vehicle, per day (8 persons)

2nd vehicle: $6 (space permitting)
