Slide Rock State Park, Sedona

4.4
#4 of 11 in Nature in Sedona
Slide Rock State Park gets its name from the slippery rock bed of Oak Creek Canyon, which forms a natural water slide and pools in the park. Red rocks and the Coconino National Forest surround the park, which is one of the most visited sites in the state. The park also features an apple farm that was planted there in 1912. Children will enjoy playing in the pools and on the natural water slide, and adults can explore the terrain, hike one of the park's three trails, and photograph views from these red rock formations.

  • Entrance fee is 10.00. Beautiful. Wear tennis shoes for walking on the rocks and trail. You can go into the water. I didn't. Trail isn't that long. My Aunt and Sister didn't venture down on the rocks ...  more »
  • In our experience this part of the Canyon is the most picturesque area and therefore well worth the State park fee. Do take all of your trash out with you. So annoying to see soda cups left behind.  more »
  • I was hesitant to go here because I don't like cold water, and some videos I saw on youtube looked like it could be very dangerous. My fiance was the first one to do the slide and he loved it! That ga...  more »

  • Pretty cool place to come and chill. You can jump off the little cliffs any time you want but do remember that the water during March is extremely cold :) You can also make your way to the end of this little park and slide down the stream. You don't have to wear jeans or pants, swimsuit is just fine. They also have a place for you to change your clothes or use a bathroom right in the middle of the park (looks like a nice wooden shack). Atmosphere was great and lots of kids seemed to enjoy themselves. Bring towels and shoes because there a lot of little rocks all over the place.
  • So cool and uniquely beautiful. It's hard to describe really. You have to see it for yourself... Tons of kids and families on the weekends in the Summer, but that didn't ruin it for me. The scenery is amazing, water is very cold... Some rock wall scaling/hiking and wading/swimming to secluded spots, if you are so inclined. The "slide" itself was heavily in use by both children and adults and too many tourists snapping pictures for me to try it, but there's a lot of little mini slides and whooshes here and there if you look. Water shoes are highly recommend. The rock can be VERY slippery. That's the whole point. Place like this won't be around forever... So get it while the getting is good.
  • Beautiful place! Great way to spend an afternoon for kids or adults. Bring a lunch and don't forget to clean up after yourself...this place is pristine. There is also actually cool general store where you can get ice cream cones and other stuff.
  • Coolest place I think we've ever been as a family! Camp nearby, enjoy the scenery. The water is refreshing, the slide is great! Look around, climb back through the rocks a ways and find yourself a secluded little mermaid pond and relax. Great fun for everyone!
