My husband and teenage daughter, along with her friend, jumped off the rocks, slid the slide and talked about how cold the water was for hours! They loved it. Hiked up the trail as well which was an adventure!

We always enjoy stopping by Slide Rock State Park when we're in Sedona. It's beautiful and fun to poke around but there are few things to keep in mind. There are a lot of rocks to climb on and around just to get in, and getting around after that requires a fair amount of climbing and walking on irregular surfaces... More

This is a must do activity for families with kids. The park was very crowded when we went, but even at full capacity there was still plenty of space to play. $10 entry fee when we went, and some thrilling natural rock slides for adults and big kids, and plenty of shallow splash areas for smaller kids. Recommended for toddler... More

Don't leave Sedona without checking out this beautiful spot. We visited in early April and the weather was perfect. $10 will get you in and we had no problem with parking when we arrived at 10 am. Great views to take in while you make your way to the river. There are picnic tables and a snack shop at the... More

Beautiful drive outside of Sedona for a great place to visit with the family $10 per car; no cash change given though credit and debit cards are accepted. There are walking trails beyond the main "slide" in the river. Not for those with accessibility issues as there are nearly no flat easy paths along the river. Water is freshly melted... More

Be mindful it's $10 to enter the park, then a short walk to slide rock. It's very pretty, but the water is freezing! Teenagers were in the creek, but not for long. Very young children wouldn't be able to handle it. I was told it was somewhere near 48-degree water temperature. Still, fun to hang out and have lunch and... More

There is a $10 per vehicle fee to get in. We went on April 3rd and the weather was cool. There is a small market that sells snacks and swim supplies. There are bathrooms, picnic areas and a large lawn you can use. The water area is a natural water play area both beautiful and functional. They had a lifeguard... More

We stopped here for a short time during which we suffered a snow storm. Remarkably, there were still people in the water despite the freezing temperatures. The scenery beside the river is pretty good. It was quite busy, even on a cold weekday so we guess that it must get really busy on hot days.

This was our first stop while entering Sedona. Its 10 dollars to enter the park. It has several picnic tables to have your lunch on and restrooms. Going down tomthe rocks is easy, not necessarily for Handicapped as you have to go down rock stairs , i didnt notice another entrance . It is beautiful , the and later on... More

Only problem here is the crowds, we went in off season and it wasn't too bad but you will want to go in warmer weather if you actually want to go in the water
