While interesting to see, you still have to pay a nominal fee (around $2.50) to literally walk a couple of minutes, check out the sliding rock and leave if you don't intend to throw yourself on it. Still, if you plan to slide down the rock a few times and join the others in the fun, it is probably worth... More

Our large group (kids aged 3 - 10) absolutely loved this day in the forest during our trip! We started our day at Sliding Rock, though we may have enjoyed the frigid temperatures after hiking! This natural water slide was exhilarating and such fun!! The hike to Moore Cove Falls was the perfect length (not quite a mile) for all... More

Cheap family friendly water fun..Ice cold water only 42 per person to get into the park. Lifeguards on duty as well as bathroom changing facilities..port o pots in lot but nice wooden facility in the park near the falls. For small;l children floaties are suggested unless they are great swimmers..very deep parts of the landing pool. Located outside of Brevard,NC.

I recently got to relive a fond boyhood memory by visiting Sliding Rock...50 years later. The water was as cold as my memory serves me, but couldn't resist.

But the area around Sliding Rock and the Coontree Picnic Area were disgusting. People left their trash including baby diapers just out on rocks or paths. Talk about LAZY! There are trash cans available. It drives me crazy that people can't clean up after themselves. The park rangers are not responsible for track pickup.

Beautiful natural waterfall that you can slide down. Water is chilly and will shock you when you feel first put your foot in. My 6 year old did it for the first time this year and did great. Life guards are present at the bottom of the falls but we still put a life jacket on our little one. Admission... More

We stopped by on an overcast day, so the water seemed extra cold. Great stop for families. Our kids liked it, but it would have been better on a warmer day. Be careful on the drive there as the road is pretty twisty and turns.

I took my family here. It cost 2$ per person to get into sliding rock. I found that earlier in the day is less crowded than the afternoon. This a large natural rock with water flowing down that allows you to slide down into a pool of water. There are lifeguards here, the water is 8ft deep when you drop... More
