Natural Water Slides

12 Badass

somewhere, frolicking in a swimming hole ranks high on the list of iconic summer activities. 

Along with river tubing and doing absolutely nada on a beach 

that boast waterfalls you can swim in, and even better, rock slides!

Superior among this nation’s great natural pools are those 

the country to check out before summer ends.

Here are some of the best natural waterslides in

Lincoln and Conway, New Hampshire

Franconia Falls/Lower Falls

Whether you take the drive along Kancamagus Highway or get there on foot, you’ll find flowing waterfalls and natural slides on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest.

Sedona, Arizona

Slide Rock State Park

The waterslide itself is 80 feet long and goes quick, thanks to the slippery algae clinging to the red rocks.

Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina

Sliding Rock

Not to be confused with Slide Rock, SlidING Rock is about an hour outside of Asheville, NC. It’s basically a 60-foot Slip ’N Slide that drops riders into a pool 7 feet deep.

Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania

Meadow Run

This 100-foot waterslide sits in Ohiopyle State Park on the southern side of the Laurel Highlands. Unlike other hidden waterslides on this list, you can actually find Meadow Run on Google Maps.

Tallulah, Georgia

Bridal Veil Falls

The passes are free, but available in limited quantities -- 100 per day -- so get there early during the summer. And consult the weather app before you head out.
