On a drive up 278 through Pisgah National Forest looking for waterfalls to photograph. The main attraction at Sliding Rock is mainly for sliding and swimming in the warmer months. Still in February with no one around on a nice observation deck, it is a...More

We really like slippery and have been twice. The first time was mid-fall and there were no life guards and you couldn’t rent jackets. Honestly, it was probably too cold in the fall but my oldest child who was 7 loved it. Make sure you...More

Line was long but moved quickly. Water was C.O.L.D. but fun on a hot day. Bathrooms were mostly clean and lots of places to explore the area.

The water was really high after snow melted and plentiful rainfall. I’m sure in the summertime this is a lot of fun for both adults and children.

We had a great time camping in the Pisgah National Park and my son was the only one brave enough to do sliding rock on this cold day. He said it was refreshing and actually better than doing it on a hot day.

We went in October and the park was closed for sliding down the falls. There was no admissions fee during this time. There is a $3 fee when the slide rock is open and there is a lifeguard on duty. We cannot wait to return...More

Dogs are allowed in the areas surrounding the sliding rock. I stayed with my daughter's dog while he family did the sliding. I don't think that dogs are allowed in the water though.
