Even though it was February, we had fun walking around here... what a beautiful place. I'll bet it is amazing in the summer when people can get in the water.

Slide rock is a great place to visit in summer when you can take advantage of the sliding....laying on the hot rocks makes one need to go into the water to cool off. The minute one steps i to Oak Creek you are destined to end up in the big pool below. Once you extract yourself from the pool below,... More

With all the recent rainfall, the water was higher than I have ever seen it. Still, the Park takes on a different look with the increased water flow. Be sure to take the short walk to the overlook which allows you a fabulous view of the natural stone pillars downstream! I also enjoyed seeing the 1920s and 1930s buildings preserved... More

Doesn't matter how many people are there, it is still way worth the visit. In the summer, it is great to swim or even just dip your toes in. There are many visitors, but still enough room to find a spot to sit, take a walk, or just shoot some photo's.

Well worth a visit! It is simply breath taking. A stunning river, surrounded by red rock. Just 7 miles outside of Sedona, a lovely drive, also can be reached by bike or hiking. $10.00 per car to get in. There is RV parking. The park itself would be wheelchair accessible on good paths, but getting down to the river would... More

Slide Rock was a different from the other parks we visited. The river was too cold to get in but I would like to come back in the summer and slide on the rocks. The trailsl were nicel and wide and the rock formations were beautiful of course. It was cold and it started to rain so we were't able... More

Thought the rock formations were lovely in Sedona until took a drive to Flagstaff on 89 A and saw the views here. I think these are the better looking, big brothers of the the Sedona mountains. Worth your time.

If you have the time while in Sedona, definitely worth a visit. Have not been to any similar place elsewhere in the country. A nice flowing creek surrounded by beautiful red rock. The grounds could be better maintained, but definitely beautiful area.
