It's truly the Niagara Falls of the West. Our family took the route through Twin Falls and stayed overnight just to see Shoshone Falls. Too bad that they rarely release the water over the entire falls anymore and although I've stopped maybe 5 times over the past 15 years, have never seen the entire falls running. Still, it's spectacular and... More

If you've ever been to Twin Falls, ID you know the terrain is generally flat. Well, the key word is "generally", Shoshone Falls is a result of the Snake River cutting a deep canyon and in that canyon is Shoshone Falls. I visited during summer when there wasn't nearly as much water going over the falls as during spring but... More

Wanted to see the twin falls the town was named after. A very nice ride down the canyon side to the river below. There is a good paring area at the entrance to the falls park, good viewing spots. The falls are really a wonderful place in the dry, flat lands around it. Nicely hidden, nicely maintained.

We are traveling from the west coast of Canada to NC. We pulled this stop up on roadside attractions USA and decided to stop. It costs $3.00 per car (buses and RV's are more). It is well worth it for the beautiful breathtaking views and photo opportunities!

These falls are amazing. There are only a few places to hike around them, but near by you can go to Deirke's lake and swim in one of the most gorgeous swimming holes.

We arrived early and had no crowds to block our views of the falls and the Snake River gorge from different angles. Fortunately there was good flow of water over the falls even though it was mid-July. A must-see for travelers through the area.

I was told they had diverted water to the much needed thirsty west...and it showed the falls were low...but still an outstanding place to see how beautiful things are right here in America.

This is a worthwhile destination, although I debated knocking it down a few points because there is a total lack of signage pointing you in the right direction. Even my Google maps failed to navigate me to the right location, and we ended up asking the clerk at Albertson's how to get to the waterfalls - really? The lady at... More

A surprising landmark considering how flat the country is! The Falls are very nicely showcased, a very pleasant little stop.
