Wade in the water and slide across the tops of rocks as the water makes its way down Oak Creek Canyon.

It was an enjoyable 10 minute walk down to the creek because the views were beautiful. We spent an hour down by the creek just exploring and it was one of my favorite parts of the trip. Every time we turned around we had another incredible view and the water was gorgeous. It was fun to climb around on the... More

Slide Rock State Park is about a 15 or so minute drive north of Sedona. If you have some time and are looking to go somewhere outdoors, I'd say it is worth it. I only spent about an hour or so there and I felt like it was enough time. When the weather is warmer, there is a river that... More

February in AZ! The water was 41 degrees, yet my children had a blast at Slide Rock! So much fun! Can't wait to visit again in the summer! Such a gorgeous place!

State Parks are a real deal, but this one has the best added perk: a naturally made water slide. And oh what a slide it is.....the most breath taking, I mean literally, water slide ever! The snow melt brings water from the mountains down this naturally slippery slope. So hike a bit up the hill along time honed smooth rocks,... More

Summertime is the peak season for this attraction it would seem. We have only seen it during the other seasons but I would imagine summertime would be CRAZY busy here at the natural slides and the river. The entire Oak Creek area is very scenic and enjoyable. If you have kids and teens the Slide Rock Park would be a... More

We stopped at Slide Rock State Park on our way to the Sedona Half Marathon. It was raining, however, the park was soooo beautiful. We took lots of pictures!! Sedona is the most beautiful place God created on the planet!!

There are dozens of lovely hikes in the Sedona area. Slide Rock is for slip sliding away, and the air temp had better be close to body temp, because the water temp sure isn't. This means it is most popular in summer, which makes parking difficult, and water quality atrocious. Too many humans and not enough fast water is an... More

this park is small and not really that great of a hike unless you are older and can't take more than 3/4 miles of a hike. we were there in the winter, so probably not the best time for this park. in the summer the park offers swimming on the creek which is probably fun. it looks like a hot...

Slide Rock State Park was super fun! It had gorgeous trails and it was just really fun! I can't stop using that word. I didn't even go in the water and I had a great time! It's like nature's Schlitterbahn :) I would love to go again if I ever find myself in Sedona again.
