Located in what many consider to be Mother Nature's finest playground, Slide Rock State Park is nestled in Oak Creek Canyon. The park takes its name from a 30 foot long water slide worn in the rocks of the creekbed. Fishing, hiking, picnicking, and nature-watching take on new dimensions among the canyon's red rock walls and pine forests. A thriving apple orchard is a unique attraction. The state has expanded parking and other facilities used by the waves of visitors who refresh themselves at Slide Rock during summer months. Several Forest Service campgrounds are nearby. Slide Rock is seven miles north of Sedona off State Route 89A.
