SEDONA, Ariz. — A popular state park in Sedona is still recovering from a fire that broke out more than a month ago as one of its most well-known attractions remains off-limits.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that visitor traffic to Slide Rock State Park is down dramatically because it's red rock slide itself, as well as the creekbed and shoreline, have been closed by the U.S. Forest Service.

Usually this time of year, the park is bustling with visitors that come to play in the water every day of the week.

Park Manager Steve Pace says that Slide Rock is now pulling in an average of just $200 each day.

Typically, the park pulls in an average of $8,000 a day throughout the summer, including weekdays.
