Where else can you have this kind of fun for $2? Took my 5-year-old granddaughter and she had a blast. She wanted to do it over and over again. The water is cold (50s), but it feels good on a warm day. Be careful as you walk out at the top because the rocks are VERY slippery. Be careful at... More

My family loved this rock. Parking is limited so get there early. You won't be disappointed. They have bathrooms outside the rock as well. My daughter said it was a once in a lifetime experience.

This is such a cool thing to be able to do. I hope ever did not get to do it :-( The rock is slippery as you climb up to the point that you can ride it down. There is a railing to hold onto but would recommend bringing water shoes. I was pregnant at the time and missed out... More

Too much $$ for a family of 8. Used to be just by the car instead of by the person. The place is awesome. The lifeguard was a little too slow to respond to a lady and child struggling in water. Someone standing there stepped up and did her job. I get it...it's cold...but it is your job!

The first time you go down it is very intimidating but then it becomes fun once you adapt to the "freezing" water of course. My kids loved this place and we went after the life guards were gone so it was less crowded. You do have to be careful with all of the rocks but definitely worth the trip!

WOW...COLD!!! The kids slid down and I was not going to do it then I met 'Granny Annie'. If she can stand the cold water so could I. I went down the easy part first and ended up scooting the whole way to the frigid cold water. I decided to try the faster flowing side and it was a blast.... More

My husband and I wanted to take a day trip with our kids and decided on Sliding Rock. I have not been here since I was a kid and so glad I came back. My kids 16 (boy) and 12 (girl) absolutely love it and it was cheap! Only $2 per person cash or check only. Thanks to Trip Advisory... More

This was a planned stop on our trip that we almost skipped because it was a cool day and the thought of freezing water didn't sound good to anyone. However, since we were driving by we decided we had to at least pay the small fee to see it. 12 and 9 year old boys loved it and went down... More

Our two teenagers loved it, and said it was one of their favorite spots on our trip. Water is VERY cold...but that didn't seem to be stopping anyone. Highly recommend water shoes!
