Slide Rock State Park Sedona AZ


Ocean-front property is admittedly hard to come by in Phoenix, but locals have long known seven secrets for beating the heat. The first is to head north to Slide Rock State Park Sedona AZ to cool off and enjoy the summer!


Slide Rock State Park is a 43-acre historical apple farm located in Oak Creek Canyon. As one of the few homesteads left intact in the canyon today, Slide Rock State Park is a wonderful example of early agricultural development in Central Arizona. The site also played a huge role in the development of the tourism industry in Oak Creek Canyon.


WORTH NOTING: During the summer, Slide Rock experiences extremely high visitation. The parking lots typically fill up from late morning through early afternoon, and a you may experience a long wait to enter the park, especially on weekends and holidays. A Parking Lot Full sign is posted at the entrance when the park reaches capacity.


The famous Slide Rock, for which the park is named, is a stretch of slippery creek bottom adjacent to the homestead. Visitors take turns sliding down a slick natural water chute or wading and sunning along the creek. It's a favorite spot from little kids to adults!
