Because of the forest fires and the monsoon season, the park was closed to the public. We had gone a few years before with my son and it was packed. They regulate how many people can enter the park. We went early in the day and we didn't have much trouble getting in. It is a nice swimming hole (water... More

We stopped by Slide Rock State Park as we drove into Sedona this past weekend. We knew that swimming was not allowed because of the recent fires but wanted to see what they area looked like and it was time for a much-needed potty break for our toddler. When we drove in, we asked the ranger if we could park... More

Beautiful park, the natural rock slide is fantastic and enjoyable for the family. Our church youth takes a mission trip to Arizona every other year and always stop to enjoy this park!

We really wanted to do this side trip but due to fire retardant run off this area of the Oak Creek Canyon is closed. I hope the officials are able to remedy the natural side effects of this horrible fire in the near future. The fires have really taken a toll on the camping and recreational aspects of this beautiful... More

We really wanted to spend some time here, but due to the fires the water areas were closed. Looked awesome from the road, but we didn't stop.

The park was beautiful and lots of things to see. Unfortunately, the slide was closed due to the fires in May.

I only rated this poorly because we had hoped to go, but it was closed because of a recent fire in Oak Creek Canyon. The park is closed when chemicals/retardants are used and then are possibly in the water stream. Hopefully others will get to use it when they come to Sedona.

I have been going to Slide Rock since I was a little girl (am 51 now) have been taking my kids there for years. The water is cold so be prepared! Also would recommend wearing some kind of shoes and shorts to slide down the rocks. Really sad to see it closed this summer due to the fires earlier in... More
