Wet Beaver Creek is similar to Oak Creek and flows through a red rock canyon. The stream is much less crowded than Oak Creek and has convenient road access. Most of the creek is difficult to access by boat but access below Montezumas Castle National Monument is suitable for low water boating.
There are high water strainers on the lower reaches.
