(1,700+ reviews on the web)
State Park
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.

  • A gem in the Sedona area. Small hiking trail with some historic information. The highlight is the Oakcreek stream where all can take advantage of rock slides, wading and some short cliff jumping. Grea...  more »

  • My children loved this park! We had a flat tire in the parking lit and the park ranger- Hank Vincent went out of his way to make our visit enjoyable. He let us use the phone since we had no service and went out of his way to change the flat tire himself rather than have us wait hours for service from the rental car company. My children thought the park was one of the best things to see in Arizona. I wanted to take the time to thank Hank Vincent for making our vacation so enjoyable!
  • Very nice state park! NOT handicap-friendly​, just so you know. $20/car entrance fee. Aside from that, it's a beautiful park in a pristine setting. It's probably 1/2 mile to the water, including a paved path, stairs and a rock creek bank. Restrooms are close to the water and there's a nice store for water, ice cream and souvenirs about half way to the parking lot.
  • Great for children, picnics, pictures nice water to swim in, junp off the rocks! Have to pay to park n hard to find parking on warm days, nice 10 min. walk to the river on a trail, the water fountains didn't work! So no drinking water here! Hopefully in warm days they might be operating
  • Went in off season, still crowded. Can only imagine when it is warm enough to swim. Got some great photos. Gets pricey during on season for a single person. For a family not as bad since they charge by the car. Most of the hiking is pretty easy if you pay attention to where you are going. Saw a few people struggling because they didn't plan their route.
  • Don't leave Sedona without stopping by Slick Rock State Park and taking a plunge! If you don't want to get wet, you'll enjoy watching other people slip and slide. Our visit took place in early April and the weather was perfect. There are great views to check out if you explore upstream.
