About Cave CreekCave Creek was originally home to the Ancestral Desert People, who irrigated their fields with water from Cave Creek. In 1870 a road was built to link the newly formed town of Cave Creek to Fort McDowell on the Verde River. The late 1800s saw the establishment of numerous mining camps in the surrounding mountains, and permanent settlers who followed took to ranching and farming.
Recreational activities abound in Cave Creek with the Tonto National Forest as its neighbor. Six lakes in the forest offer numerous opportunities for swimming, fishing and boating.
