Sliding down rocks covered with algae is actually quite fun. If you are in the mood to visit a natural-made "water park" this summer, you should checkout Slide Rock. Slide Rock State Park is in Sedona, Arizona. The entree fee is $20 per vehicle (can have up to 4 adults) and $3 extra for every adult.
In August, the average high and low temperatures was guessed to be about 94 and 63 degrees Fahrenheit so bring your sunscreen. It's a good thing the temperatures are so high because the water is always freezing!
Remember, this is not your average pool or water-park. Slide Rock is a huge creek that has rock crevices flowing down it. It has about three sections where you are free to relax and swim around. In Slide Rock, you are allowed to slide down these slippery algae-covered crevices. Water is pushing down on you so it's literally a "rock slide". There are several rock slides and they are all really enjoyable. Be sure to wear water trunks if you ever plan on going because the rocks scratch your thighs as you're going down them.
Another fun attraction at Slide Rock is "The Cliff", a rock that hovers over the water that you can jump off of. You can put all of your belongings along either side of the huge boulders that border the water.
If you are desiring an ice-cold treat or want to eat lunch, you can leave your stuff in the park and walk down to the food market. They sell the following items and much more: candy bars, ice cream, pretzels, salads, and souvenirs. You can eat the food at the food market or bring it back to the creek. Near the market, they have a restroom and a water fountain.
You can schedule weddings or just have a family fun day at Slide Rock State Park. It's a blast at Slide Rock, and it's great to know everything is naturally- made. For this summers road trip, visit Slide Rock, the slide of a lifetime.
