Slide Rock State Park gets its name from the slippery rock bed of Oak Creek Canyon, which forms a natural water slide and pools in the park. Red rocks and the Coconino National Forest surround the park, which is one of the most visited sites in the state. The park also features an apple farm that was planted there in 1912. Children will enjoy playing in the pools and on the natural water slide, and adults can explore the terrain, hike one of the park's three trails, and photograph views from these red rock formations.

Slide Rock State Park reviews
We didn't bring swimsuits, so we basically did this park as a hiking venue. There was a lot to see in the swimming area, though, as it is an interesting place to swim. The hike goes high above the..... more »
After hiking rocks, we thought this hike along the creek was a refreshing change of scenery. The mountain spring-fed water is really cold, so obviously it’s a popular spot in the summer to cool off..... more »
Slide Rock State Park is amazing. We were on family vacation in Arizona and heard about this place from a close friend. We all ended up going and I am so thankful we did. It cost around $20 to get in and you have to make a tiny bit of a walk to get to the fun spot, but it is all completely worth it. The water is completely clear and refreshing. The rocks are so smooth you can ride on certain sections just like a slide. It is usually a little bit busy, but if you go a little bit closer to closing you can usually have a decent amount of space to yourself. They have public restrooms all around so you don't need to worry about that at all. Be prepared for the water to be a little chilly depending on what time you go, but I'm positive you will enjoy your experience here.
Slide Rock is absolutely beautiful. It was my first time here and I very much enjoyed the scenery. The water is refreshing and a lot of fun when the current takes you down the rocks. Just sit and enjoy the ride. It’s truly nature’s slide. Be aware that wet areas are very slippery and you could fall easily if you don’t watch your step. Be sure to walk slowly and hold onto nearby stones for support if you are standing up in the water.
