We stopped by Sedona on our way back to Phoenix from the Grand Canyon, and decided to stop in to Slide Rock State Park. The fee was reasonable for a carload, and the river is just a short walk from the parking lot. We were amazed at what we saw! The rocks are a red that you wouldn't think possible in nature, and the water was clear and refreshing. We travelled in mid May, so the temperature was only about 80, so the water felt a little cold. We waded around but did not get in the water, although there were other people in. They would position themselves in the middle of the stream and the water would gently push them down just like a waterslide. Anyone from small children to grandparents were enjoying it! The rocks are also wide and flat, the perfect place to lay out or sit on a blanket.
There are also bathrooms, a store, and a good picnic area up by the parking lot.
