I grew up in the area and originally it was just a wide spot in the road where you could park, walk down and slide down the rock to the bottom. Point of clarification. Sliding rock is a natural rock shelf at about a 30% incline with Looking Glass Creek running over it. Aside from the natural lubrication of running... More

August 16th, 2016 - My boyfriend and I were giving Sliding Rock as one of 4 suggestions of things to do on our way from one rental in North Carolina to the cabin in South Carolina by the owners of the cabin. The road to get to Sliding Rock is a wonderful ride with sites to see along the way.... More

This place is very cool! Very popular with locals and tourists the same it seems. There are several steps, but I would could consider them very easy to navigate. Lots of viewing decks/space.

It cost $2.00 per person to enter or $25 a year for a family vehicle. We went to see the falls. The water was very chilly so we just watched everyone else enjoy the slide. Will defiantly be back when the water will be warming.. This is a must see.

Lines moved pretty fast, water was cold but not too bad, lifeguards were a reassurance when bringing small kids. Other places in this park to swim and explore for free that were absolutely gorgeous.

Absolutely an awesome low cost place to take your family for good wholesome old fashioned fun playing in the creek using the natural water slide.

not a long visit place but worth it. Natural water slide. Have to be very careful on slippery rock. So freezing cold but worth it. Drops you right into water and you feel invigorated afterwards. Kids would love it. Not long lines his time of year

Wonderful day spent sliding down the falls with twin 8 year old children. Yes, the water is a bit cold, yes, the line takes about 20 - 30 minutes to hike to top with crowds on Labor Day weekend - but YES, would do it all over again. The park is very clean, well run, and attendants are friendly. Be... More

Sliding Rock is a great outdoors day for all ages. The rock is not that long, the expectation of sliding is fun. When you arrive there is limited parking but you can park along the road if needed. Entrance is $2 per a person. Bring your own lunch and water. There are no concessions. We wore a swim suit and... More

The water was freezing but I immediately got used to it. There's a $2 fee but you can slide all day, totally worth it! There's a bit of a line in the summer time but I went back after school started and it was pretty empty.
