This is a very beautiful setting and the falls are very impressive. They actually are the best in the spring when the snow is melting. There are places for picnics.

Visited in August 2014 - nice but nothing like the claim of the West's Niagra Falls - not in August anyway when the water levels are low. But based on the pictures on the information boards at the falls if you come in May they put on quite a show! Ditto Twin Falls just up the road 2 miles.

We first stopped at the Snake River Overlook which was awesome. A gentleman asked if we had visited Shoshone Falls and said it was worth the trip. He was right. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Nice parking area, well kept grounds and sidewalks. Nice break while on the road. There is a small fee $2.00... More

Our family has visited 38 states and decided to drive here from Park City as our "Idaho" visit. We love waterfalls, and these are gorgeous, even in the summer. Kids enjoyed a short hike to get a better view.

The falls are beautiful, It does cost $6 to get in. It has nice clean lookout points. It was borderline dry that day. I went at the wrong time of the year.

My wife and I stopped at the falls on a cross country road trip due to the great reviews they had on this and other websites. We could not have been more disappointed. The viewing area is run by the city and is not part of the national/state park service, but it's still cheap to get in. The place has... More

Just stopped by Shoshone Falls today. It was beautiful to see and you can definitely see the potential when water is higher. Would love to come back in April/May and see the true power of the falls.

The falls run best in spring when there is more winter run-off. The summer falls aren't as much, but still nice. Also the park has picnic tables for lunch and just a nice setting for sitting and reading or walking your dog.

Even in August at low flow it was worth the few minutes it took to visit this park. If you can, go in April at high water. Judging by the pictures it must be truly spectacular.
