This has been one of my favorite places since I was a kid. Had my birthday parties here. I am thrilled to say it is as much fun as ever. The smiles stay on your face from the first slide to the last. The Pisgah National Forest is a beautiful, serene setting for a picnic afterwards. Yes there are crowd... More

I was traveling with my preteen and we did some research before arriving in North Carolina. SO glad we stopped here. The trill of sliding down a rock waterfall into a deep pit of water kept my kids happy and busy for hours. This was more fun than most of the children's museums and attractions we paid big money to... More

Our first visit to Sliding Rock was with our toddlers in the 1970's. This month we returned with their teenage children. I was worried if it would live up to our billing. They all loved it and slid several times. The down side was it was so crowded on Saturday afternoon that it was chaotic: barricades, police car, shouting, people... More

Three generations of family fun and lots of pictures made for a great vacation activity and loads of good memories. And no one got hurt! Do arrive early before the crowds find you, but if you find yourself with lots of company, say hello and make some new friends. You are all here for the same reason ~ family fun... More

After stopping at Looking Glass Falls, we got back into our car and drove the short distance to parking lot entrance to Sliding Rock. It was around 1pm on a Wed. I read somewhere that in July that Sliding Rock would get extremely crowded where they wouldn't allow more people into the area. Well, it was like that during our... More

Our family visited sliding rock while in the Asheville area. The kids requested it (aged 8 to 12) and they enjoyed it for 2 hours. The water is a bit cold but it didn't stop them from having a great time. We stopped for a picnic after, just down the road.
