Talk about beautiful. It is mesmerizing just to stand and watch the waterfalls. This is a place you don't want to miss when visiting Idaho.

This place was a nice side trip. We were driving across Idaho and decided to stop here. It was better than the pictures we had seen of it. The falls have a few really nice vantage points, but the dam and power lines in the background diminish the view slightly. If you go during the middle of summer, the views... More

Let´s face the fact, a place has to be very special to recommend the visit. Shoshone Falls is an example of this. I visited Idaho last year in summer. The grass was green and fresh, like a natural carpet to lay on. You can walk and enjoy the view, drink something cold and take some fresh air; this park is... More

Expected to see awesome falls and, well, it was just a trickle. Water taken for irrigation and power diminished the falls to a tiny rivulet of what pictures show once crashed over the ledges. Nice little park area. Bit of a drive out of town to get there.

Seeing the falls without a lot of water was kind of neat. Still pretty, and since you can't predict how much water will be there, you get what you get.

Fun park and great scenery. The falls are beautiful and the lake is nice. It can get a little crowded at times.

The drive down the canyon wall to the walls is spectacular, with many mini falls along the way. The Falls themselves are beautiful to behold. The viewing plateforms are well placed. The view of the river is tranquil and gives you a grand view of the river valley.

A very easy visit if you're in the area, but not quite wet enough to get the extra star. Locals use Dierkes Lake as a public park, so there's lots of activity.

Lovely view even with the water volume being about 1/4 of what it normally would be.Worth the trip. Bring your National Park card for free admission for seniors. Has a nice picnic area.
