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 stopped at Sliding Rock in October and were unable to slide down the rock, as there was no lifeguard but it sure looked fun! Six of us were in the car with two America the Beautiful passes but we were still required to pay...More

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

The water falls cascades over a huge mountain slope which doubles as slide. Looks a bit iffy on safety side so take care. The landing though looks deep enough it looks like a good experience In summer. Would just rather watch in fall season. Good...More

This is something you must do! It was a blast to slide down the sliding rock. The water is cold, but it is worth it.

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.

Has anyone ever been to Sliding Rock BEFORE Memorial Day? The website says it doesn't open until Memorial day weekend, but I was just wondering if the weather would be decent and if you are "allowed" to experience it before it opens. Thanks!

Here is what the website says: "While you can slide anytime year-round during daylight hours, lifeguards are on duty and changing rooms / restrooms are open every day from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day, 10 AM-6 PM. After Labor Day, lifeguards work on weekends through mid-October. Cost to enter the recreation area is $2 per person when staff members are on duty (cash or check). Children 6 and under are free.
