Slide Rock State Park
Slide Rock State Park information
One of Sedona's most popular, and most crowded, destinations, this state park features an 80ft natural sandstone chute that whisks swimmers through Oak Creek. In addition to the main attraction, you can slide along from shallow plateau to shallow plateau along the park's half-mile stretch of creek, or simply splash in the cool, clear waters. Bring a blanket and a cooler, or buy drinks and snacks at the small park store. It's located 7 miles north of downtown Sedona.
In the summer, queues can soar upwards of an hour during peak hours of 10am to 3pm; once the parking lot is full one vehicle can enter only after another leaves, and walk-ins are not allowed. There are no lifeguards, and pets must be kept on a leash.
