Verde River
This river is one of Arizona's major perennial rivers and a treasured resource in the central part of the state. Free flowing for most of its length, it provides lush riparian habitat, abundant wildlife, diverse recreational opportunities, and spectacular scenery. The majority of the upper and lower Verde River passes through National Forestlands that is open to public recreation of all kinds. Fishing, boating, swimming, picnicking, camping, bird watching, and sightseeing are all popular activities. The lower river is designated a Wild and Scenic River and offers the opportunity to fish by boat from Beasley Flats to Childs.

West Clear Creek
The deep, rocky canyon cut by the creek, as it slices its way free of the Mogollon rim, is home to one of the most unique Wilderness Areas in the Southwest. Lower reaches of the canyon are more accessible and provide excellent places for secluded recreation such as swimming, hiking, trout fishing, and wildlife watching.

Wet Beaver Creek
This creek remains pleasantly secluded in the deep red rock canyon it has cut into the southern rim of the Colorado Plateau. In addition to the opportunities for solitude such an area offers, the stream's pools and riffles are a popular place to fish, hike, swim, and bird watch.
