A fun water activity

A lot of fun for almost all ages. Would not recommend little ones go sliding down the rocks, but they can wade in the water. Fun for the whole family

Ran into this state park by accident and what a special place. So many beautiful views and, on a clear crisp cool morning, it's an absolute perfect place to get away from the craziness of everyday life and enjoy a little nature. Topped off by the birds singing around me in the early morning hours, I couldn't have asked for... More

We were driving down 89A through Oak Creek Canyon from the North and looking at the Red Rocks and looking at all of the places that required Red Rock Passes and didn't sell them. We saw a sign on a store and pulled off and found ourselves at the entrance to this park. We paid and parked. We walked around,... More

Too early to swim and too late to catch the apple blossoms but a great place for a stroll along the river. Lots of wildflowers and bright new green leaves against the red rocks. Not hard to imagine life here a century ago, well worth a story or too: "Little House in the Canyon"?

We went here on accident and had a great time. We were traveling through the area stopping to catch the beautiful sights and saw a line of cars waiting to get in. We paid to park but no other cost for the day. I don't suggest having little children (under 8 yrs old) do this because there are many slippery... More

this is about sliding down a creek. The hikes are mediocre, the only attraction is walking up the rocks along the river and letting the cold current take you back down. There are better things to do in Sedona.

Slide Rock State Park was one of our favorite Sedona-area experiences. Even if you don't attempt the "slide", you can't possibly have a bad time here. We walked as far as we could go up the river, and enjoyed the scenery and vibe. Well worth the $10 admission.

As this is a state park, there is a $10 parking fee. Great place to have a picnic, which we did, and then walk to the rocks. The scenery is beautiful. The trail is short but you can climb the rocks along the creek and explore further. The parking lot is huge, there are bathrooms and a market on site... More

Gorgeous water, easy hiking and nice places to picnic. My husband went here 30 years ago before it was even organized with a parking lot (they would park along the side of the road) and it's still clear and beautiful. The slide itself is awesome and there are several places to dive in. It's cold but the kids love it... More

Our family had a fun time here. We brought a lunch and ate it while the kids played in the river. There is a fun area for people to slide down the rocks....not dangerous. We did see a few people fall but they were walking on slippery rock areas in flip flops (You got to be more careful people!). My... More
