We had a great time camping in the Pisgah National Park and my son was the only one brave enough to do sliding rock on this cold day. He said it was refreshing and actually better than doing it on a hot day.

This is something you must do! It was a blast to slide down the sliding rock. The water is cold, but it is worth it.

If you’re willing to get chilly, this natural water slide is a blast! A great refresher between all the hiking in the area.

Dogs are allowed in the areas surrounding the sliding rock. I stayed with my daughter's dog while he family did the sliding. I don't think that dogs are allowed in the water though.
