Great changing facilities and a life gaurd now on duty. I do miss the somewhat rustic and unspoiled memories of it from my youth but as... More

Of course the water is cold but maybe if I visit in the summer I will be bold enough to try? It was still off season when we went, no lifeguard on duty, but there were locals and visitors going down the cold water rock. I honestly believe the cold numbs your backside which helps with the way down, haha.... More

There were many families with children there with kids sliding down the rock. It's a nice free adventure, but be prepared because the water is cold!

Another attraction near beautiful Asheville, North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains area. Pretty cool experience to cool off and relax before continuing what usually is a very hectic day of sightseeing in the area. You actually get to slide down an expansive rock that empties into a lagoon and you can do it over and over again. Don't forget... More

The whole forest is great but this slide really made our day. It is a fun spot for going down the slide or wading in the pools at the bottom. Be prepared to go under at the bottom of the slide. The water was cold in April (no surprise) but it was great.

Lets get back to good clean fun. Slide down a rock and dunk into a chilly pool at the bottom. If that doesn't get you awake then just roll over. This place is fun all the way around just like God made it. When it is hot and on the weekend you may be in for a wait, but it... More

The Sliding Rock is VERY FUN. At first, it looks scary and jagged, and I was about to chicken out. But I tried it, and it was one of my best experiences while vacationing. There is moss on the rock which makes your slide smooth and comfortable. At the end, the water is cold and deep, but the adrenaline allows... More

This is a must do for your bucket list. America's original water slide. I first visited her in 1971 when there were no parking lots, no restrooms, no changing rooms, no nice wooden platforms and no steps or cable to help you get to the top. You just pulled off the side of the road and took your chances. Now... More

Better to try this in the summer, though, lol! In season, this is a fun place to get wet & cool off....it's pretty much like an assembly line at times though but an interesting activity!

Sliding Rock is a MUST when in the area! Water is breathtakingly cold but the adventure is worth it!
