Slide Rock State Park
This natural water slide is located in Oak Creek Canyon 15 minutes from Sedona and 40 minutes from Flagstaff. Slide Rock State Park was originally the Pendley Homestead but today is known as one of “America’s Top 10 Swimming Holes”. But the crisp creek water is not the only draw to the area. Slide Rock State Park is surrounded by famous red rocks and desert scenery. So beautiful in fact, that many movies including "Angel and the Badman" (1946) with John Wayne were filmed there. There are even three hiking trails in the area to explore before you cool off in the water! These include Pendley Homestead Trail (.25 miles), Slide Rock Route (.3 miles), and Clifftop Nature Trail (.25). Slide Rock State Park has all the fun of a water park, with all the natural beauty Sedona is so famous for!FEES:

This natural marvel is located in Coconino National forest and managed by Arizona State Parks and the U.S. Forest Service. These organizations work very hard to keep this incredible area clean and safe but they need everyone’s help to preserve Slide Rock. Due to its canyon location and the dry environment of Arizona, this area in particular is very much devastated by fires. For this reason please throw cigarettes in the garbage and NOT on the ground. By doing this you are not only preserving Slide Rock but the homes and families that live nearby. There has not just been a history of disrespectful tourists setting fires ablaze in the canyon, but those that will even leave trash, beer cans, diapers, etc. in the water. To prevent E. coli-bacteria infections the water is tested daily but refraining or reporting such irresponsible behavior is very much appreciated!
