Be careful of the slippery rocks. It's fun and refreshing but one can get hurt if they don't pay att

Came here on a Saturday, so I anticipated more crowds. No problem. However, I went alone to take some pictures of the hillside looking for something spectacular, and I must say I was not overly impressed, especially with the $10 to get in. (btw, the fee only works at that park and not the other state parks). The supposedly notable... More

If You want to see slide rock, You pay the $10 park entry fee so You can park Your car. Once that is out of the way, it is all beautiful. Nice walkway that leads to the water. Restrooms along the way. A small grocery that wasn't open when we were there. Several buildings to see from the outside that... More

Slide Rock State Park is good but over-rated and there is a lot that could be done to improve what is quite a beautiful creek and rock area. For example just near the entrance and steps down to the creek is a massive clump of blackberries that are growing wild and expanding. The place looks a little unkempt and could... More

Open 0900-1700. Admission prove is $10 per car. Lots of scenic views, but if you are not going to do slide rock, I would take in the complimentary views around you elsewhere. Way to cold to swim or slide. I have been here multiple times, but it has never included water fun dude to temperatures. I did enjoy reading the... More

It looks like it would be a great stop in the spring and summer, but in November the water is cold so no one was sliding. The apples were picked, no flowers etc but got a few great pics of the sun coming up over one of the rocks in the parking lot. This stop does NOT accept other state... More

I took the prettiest photos here of anywhere in Arizona. The steep walls around Oak Creek are like being at the bottom of a miniature Grand Canyon. There were beautiful blue granite boulders along the creek, like none I've seen before. It's just a short walk from the parking lot to the creek. We went on a Monday, and it... More

The drive from Sedona on 89A to the state park was narrow and curvy but very scenic. My husband and I parked the car in the lot and hiked a short, easy distance to the creek. The rock terrain was difficult in that area with no handrails or steps to get down to the creek. My husband lost his balance... More

This state park used to be a small apple orchard of all things, so it has interesting history as well as scenery. And that scenery is wonderful! You see Oak Creek Canyon rising all around you and the creek running beneath you. While we thought the entrance fee was a bit pricey for how tiny the park is ($10/car for... More
