Red Rock is an unincorporated community in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. Red Rock is 4.5 miles (7.2 km) southwest of Sedona. In the late 19th century, Red Rock was the principal settlement in the Oak Creek Canyon area. Red Rock is now an upscale suburb of Sedona.

Red Rock Crossing is a scenic former ford across Oak Creek, with photogenic views of Cathedral Rock. The crossing was washed out in a flood in 1978,[2] and there are no current plans to reopen it to automobile traffic. Past proposals to build a bridge at Red Rock Crossing met vociferous opposition.[3] Most of the crossing is included in the Coconino National Forest's Crescent Moon Ranch recreation area.
