Slippery Rock: Northeast Wisconsin’s Natural Water Slide

Who needs an indoor waterpark? Slippery Rock is a natural rock formation in the Oconto River that forms a water slide. It’s one of the biggest family attractions at Oconto County’s Chute Pond Park and Campground in Mountain, Wisconsin. Taking the natural water slide from the lake, and continuing down and around the dam, is fun and entertaining for children and adults with tubes and small rafts.
