Great place if you can get there early before the crow or late after they leave. Bring bug spray for the kids lots of biting insects late afternoon

Although the water is very cold, it's still as expected; fun and exciting. We got lucky that there's not a long line but worth the wait. My only suggestion is to add rinse off stations, otherwise the entry fee is reasonable.

Our family loves finding new waterfalls with swimming and Sliding Rock was the perfect combination. The parking was tight with a short hike. Bathrooms on property. Lines were long but moved very quickly. If you have never been you definitely need to make the trip.

I hate cold water but I love watching my kids and other people plunge into a pool of it at the bottom of Sliding Rock. This is such a fun old-school attraction: a creek, a big slippery sloping rock and a couple spots to observe...More

There wasn't much parking, so if you happen to see an open spot take it because it won't be there when you come back around. It's $2 a person to get in even if you don't plan on sliding if you want to go more...More

Enjoy a day in a beautiful forest, with great views. Great fun for whole family! Cost is $2 per person for a day of fun. Pack a lunch. Fun just to watch.

We only stayed about an hour and a half and slid 4 times because the line moved pretty quickly. We went in the early afternoon and there was so many people. The line went all the way up to the set of stairs taking you down... More
