You didn't really go to Sedona if you don't stop by at Slide Rock. It's a MUST place to visit and enjoy. The water is chilly, the thrill sliding on the rock with running water is worth it! My daughter had so much fun and went gazillion times, sliding.

Getting to Slide Rock was easy, 15 minutes from the Hyatt where we were staying at. I would say this is a great spot to relax and beat the heat, take part of nature's running stream. A couple or few hours there is all you need. Getting into the park was only $20 after that they give you directions on how to get to the water fun. They also have apple picking orchards, but there's a small cost to that. I didn't post any pics there are plenty of pictures and videos of the water streams online. But you need to know (the water is freezing) and the ground is very slippery. You must take good water shoes, it will still be slippery but not as much. You can see the locals come with pop up tents and relax. We took a rectangle inflatable and it was pretty fun. Be careful when going down the slide, even though it does not go super fast and it is not deep there is still possibility that you can hit your head. I would suggest keep your arms tucked in to your side, slightly up protecting the face....don't fling your arms all over the place. There are also small areas of water where you can dive into it, or just float around in.

The Adventure Buddies had a great time at Slide Rock but there are a few things you need to know. To get in the park there could be a line up of cars, it gets busy, so we arrived 30 minutes before it opened at 8am. The rocks were fun to slide down but it’s not one long continuous slide like we thought, it’s broken up and you can either use a raft or not both ways are fun. There are a few areas you can jump from but please be careful!

We read all the reviews saying it was a dog friendly place. We paid the $20 to park to be told that the dogs are not allowed down by the water. You could only take them on the trail, which is like 500 feet long then signs posted NO DOGS... Are you kidding me... I'm sure it's fun to play in the water and cliff jump, but we didn't get to find out... NOT A DOG FRIENDLY PLACE!!!

Came here with family and spent the day enjoying the water and the beauty. Once an apple farm established around the turn of the century, this State Park is a jewel in the Sedona area. Located about 7 miles north of Sedona on Highway 89A this park is definitely located in the most beautiful part of the Oak Creek Valley. Because of the limitations on entrants due to Covid, you will need to GET HERE EARLY. We had to wait almost an hour to get in as the numbers of people were strictly limited and enforced. Since it is a state park, they charge an entrance fee of about $20.00 during the week and more on weekends; the Red Rock Pass and other federal park passes won't apply. Once inside, you can walk up the creek and see some of the most beautiful parts of the creek nestled in the red rocks. The water is chilly, but not unbearable. Plenty of restrooms in the park at various locations. There is a "General Store", the old farmstead house, apple trees in an orchard, and more. You can bring your coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, food and drink and just make a day of it. And yes, you can actually get in the creek and slide down the rocks! It is safe for anyone older than 5 years to go sliding, otherwise, for the little ones, there are plenty of shallow pools to swim in. You can also jump of the shallow cliff into the pools below. Shade is often hard to come by except early morning and late afternoon.
