Clear Creek is a popular spot for fishing.  Non-motorized boaters sometimes put in here for a trip to Beasley Flat, or take out here after floating from White Bridge, but this site is not a very good "boat launch."  The river bank is steep and slippery, and the parking lot is not especially close to the river; however, it is possible to launch or take-out at Clear Creek for those who don't have time for the 10-mile float from White Bridge to Beasley Flat and don't mind the inconvenience of a short walk and a less-than-perfect "boat launch."  Please note that river conditions vary greatly depending on weather, river level, and other factors.  Please plan ahead for a safe and enjoyable experience on the Verde River: Verde River Guide, Hwy 89A - Beasley Flat

Boating - Non-Motorized

  • Kayakers sometimes put-in here for a 4.3-mile float to Beasley Flat, or take-out here after a 6-mile float from White Bridge, but Clear Creek does not have a very good "boat launch."  The river bank is steep and slippery, and the parking lot is not expecially close to the river; however, it is possible to use this River Access Point for those who don't have the time for a longer trip and don't mind the inconvenience.  Please note that river conditions vary greatly depending on weather, river level, and other factors. Please plan ahead for a safe and enjoyable experience on the Verde River.

Tubing

  • Clear Creek is a nice spot to cool off floating on an inner tube, but be careful about floating too far down stream: the next River Access Point is 4.3 miles away at Beasley Flat!  Please note that river conditions vary greatly depending on weather, river level, and other factors. Please plan ahead for a safe and enjoyable experience on the Verde River.
