Big Park is a census-designated place (CDP) in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. The population was 5,245 at the 2000 census. Big Park is more commonly known as the Village of Oak Creek (VOC), and is a bedroom community for Sedona, Arizona, just 7 miles away. Tourism and service to retirees and second-home owners are the basis for the local economy. Big Park, the pioneers' name for the large open area that became the Village of Oak Creek in the early 1960s, is set among scenic red-rock buttes and canyons. The Bell Rock scenic area adjoins the north end of VOC, and the town is surrounded by the Coconino National Forest. A Forest Service Visitor Center is located at the south end of VOC.

At Oak Creek Espresso, we believe in participating in Direct Trade farming, offering our customers only the best quality coffee beans, drinks, food, and baked goods.
After 6 days in Sedona, we found this shop on the way out of town headed home. Excellent friendly service; great products! We wanted to try everything, but settled on a Turkey bacon croissant and a blueberry muffin. Wow...fantastic! Coffee was pretty darned good, too! Definitely will be back!

We stopped for lunch on a Sunday for "a little something." We found a lot! Great sandwiches, especially on the cranberry walnut bread, and a large assortment of delicious pastries. Tasty food, good prices, friendly staff and well cared for dining area. We'll be back.

OMG, this restaurant has the BEST food! Order the Red Rock Benedict, the build your own breakfast burrito, or the banana blueberry walnut french toast - all FANTASTIC. Service is great, too! Can't say enough about this place. Get there by 8:00AM or there will be a wait.

This is an awesome restaurant and not your typical Mexican restaurant. The menu items are unique and delicious. The salsa that is served with the chips when you are seated is incredible. Make sure you arrive by 4:30 even though it doesn’t open up until 5 pm. There was already a line but we were able to be seated outside. The view was spectacular. staff super friendly. Worth going to !

After shopping in uptown Sedona we travel home down Rt. 179 through the Village of Oak Creek and stop for a meal at Miley’s. The next stop is at Rocky Road Ice Cream located next door. It’s a waffle cone of Peanut Butter Chip for me and a dish of Mexican Coffee for my wife. Never disappointed.

Here at Firecreek Coffee we roast our own beans in Flagstaff, AZ. All of our baked goods are made from scratch and baked fresh daily. We also make our own chai and specialty syrups- Salted Cardamom, Ponderosa Vanilla and Cajeta. All our milks are organic. We offer Coconut, Almond, Soy, Whole and Reduced Fat milks.
The coffee here is the best in town. Seating is comfortable and space allows everyone to choose a comfy corner or sit in a group (depending on how you feel). Firecreek is based in Flagstaff (great coffee shop there, too) and they supply the coffee sold at Indian Gardens in Oak Creek canyon.
They have their own, in house, baked goods which are also excellent. (Sure wish there was a Firecreek Coffee house near us in Tempe - hint, hint!)

Locally owned and operated, we proudly sell 12 of Thrifty's brand classic ice creams. With a beautiful Red Rock view, you can also enjoy a Chicago style, 100% Vienna Beef hotdog. For more of a variety, choose from a Chili Dog, German Style, or a build your own. While eating, you can sit on one of our two outdoor, dog-friendly patios.
What is vacation without ice cream? We spotted Walters on our way to dinner and knew that we would return for a treat later on in the evening. Our ice cream cones were very good and the scoops were generous. Just as we arrived, the bottom fell out and we sat out the rain shower inside at a table to enjoy our ice cream. The young man behind the counter was very friendly and helpful to us with our selections.
