The kids had a blast even though the water was freezing! There’s little sitting areas, so pack light! If you go on the weekend like we did, expect it to be crowded. The bathrooms weren’t open, so that’s another issue and the only reason I...More

This was a true pleasure. We went on Mother’s Day expecting large crowds. There was a limited number of people there according to the regulars who stated it was normally much busier. The water was cold. According to the sign it is 55 degrees year...More

This entire drive has multiple opportunities for hiking to see various waterfalls, all the way from easy to moderate. Gorgeous area!

This is so much fun, whether you are sliding or people-watching. It’s really cold in the water - even in the dog days of summer. Good bathroom facility on site.

We did not bring proper attire for sliding rock. I must come back with my family! Looks like they have lifeguards at some time in the season. There is also a $2 per person fee during season.

We visited Sliding Rock and we had a blast. The staff and life guards there were great and they engaged the kids which showed their concern for everyone's safety.

No line and no fees was worth the cold water of doing this in April. My kids loved and it was worth the detour from our weekend in Asheville to check this out!

Our visit was late in March, so we didn't do the slide, but it's a nice waterfall to see and lust off the road!

Even in 64 degree weather, the sliding rock stop was a hit with our kids. In fact, might have been even the best case scenario in some ways. Because it was a little cold, there were no lines and no fees. A local told us...More

Exciting fun for people who enjoy water slides. A slide down a natural rock water slide into a 6ft deep pool of icy water. And repeat. It's a great place for kids and adults alike.

If it's off season, meaning it's not open to visitors to use the "slide," then there is a larger parking area that you should be able to manuver in okay. If it's open season then I've read the parking lot gets full and... More
