All you need is a bathing suit not in wintertijd but summer is the best hard to find but if you have found Slide rock with kids they like it water should run but in most time of the year there is if you drive forforw from the site you become in the grand canyon good luck travellers

This place was awesome! The park rangers were super friendly, and helpful. Be well prepared with water shoes, towels, sunscreen, etc. This is a perfect place for families to enjoy nature. The park was very clean. Gorgeous natural beauty!

An easy day trip from the Phoenix valley, including a stop for lunch in Sedona, and some shopping. Our only mistake, it was Memorial Weekend. The drive into and through Sedona was bumper to bumper and pretty darn awful! Finally getting to Slide Rock like finding an oasis in the desert. Yup. I said it! The entry fee (due to... More

This is a great place to visit with a pup or with kids on a warm day. The apple orchard history is fascinating. Check out the water management pipes hanging in the canyon walls above. The hiking trails are limited. Maybe two miles round trip. The creek and water are the real attraction. Wait for a warm day and enjoy!... More

Slide rock is an interesting place, as the creek has cut a path through the rocks and you can slide down through the channel it has cut. Our family group was 5 kids around the age of 20 and 4 parents. The kids went down the slide a few times and then we were headed back toward the car. This... More

We went to this scenic watering hole one afternoon. It's beautifully placed between a few cliffs, a short walk from the parking lot (its a few dollars to park.) There are bathrooms and a small convenience store on site. The "slide" is a divot built into the rock by the passing river water over the years. It was super fun,... More

It's a 10 minute or so walk down to the water, and once you are there it's mostly sun. If you can find a small shade spot, claim it so you can get a little relief from the sun if you need it. The water was really cold since it's so early in the year. My 2 year old loved... More

Just visited Slide Rock at beginning of April. The park was crowded but not overly so. The water was very cold, but refreshing for a quick dip. Be sure to bring towels and swim attire. Beautiful park with lots of photo opportunities. Truly a once in a life time experience!
