    Slide Rock Store

    There is a small store along the Pendley Homestead Trail where you can buy snacks, drinks, limited groceries, post cards, etc. Photo 2 is not accurate though. That cannot be a Redneck Windchime. No self-respecting redneck would drink diet anything much less V8 Vegetable Juice!

  • Slippery Fun!

    by delirium874 Written Apr 16, 2008

    Slide Rock is a great way to spend an afternoon! As all the other reviewers have said, the water is cold, the rocks are warmed from the sun...the rocks form a sort of "slide" that you slip through the river in. It is fun for kids as well as adults.

    From the parking lot at the park, the walk is kinda long. Part of it is a nice sidewalk, but then you go down some stairs and find yourself walking along the creek. The walk can be difficult for some (my mother went with and had problems because of her knees and arthritis)

    The water is definitely cold. We went in September, it wasn't as crowded, it was hot outside, but that water felt FREEZING! It was definitely a shock to our systems!

    We received a fantastic tip from a local. The rocks are slippery. VERY slippery. So, we all wore long shorts or capris over our suits. We did see a few people fall while we were there and crack their shins/knees/elbows/head on the rocks. So we were glad we had the jean material on. It didn't slip as much as "skin on slime" did.

    Definitely a great time and we will be back!

    Oak Creek Streams

    This is located behind the New Age Store just off of Highway 89A. The most peaceful and beautiful stream I've seen in Arizona to date!

    This stream flows from Oak Creek. If you're ever looking for something to do there, try Slide Rock State Park!

    The Brown House

    The first real homestead built on the site was referred to as "The Brown House". It was built in 1926, and serves as the entrance for the park today.

    An Apple Shed was built in 1932 to facilitate the packing and shipping of the apples after harvesting. The building still houses some of the original equipment.

    Okay. so this is not a very exciting tip; but it's good to know where a bathroom is when you need one. There are bathrooms on the Pendley Homestead Trail and down by the sliding rocks.

    Slide Rocks State Park features a sort of naturally formed water slide in the riverbed. I like to walk up the river jumping between rocks.
