Very nice, but crowded.

Since I have a fear of heights, I stayed back a bit, but the views were still beautiful. Lots of visitors, and a bit crowded but worth the side detour to visit.

The key to Shoshone Falls is knowing the flow. When Idaho Power opens the dam it is spectacular! Even when the water is down to a trickle, it is a beautiful spot. Just make sure that you're not expecting the full show on slow days. In the summer, there are restroom facilities and a small gift shop. The park surrounding... More

Twin Falls isn't exactly a hot spot for tourism. Shoshone Falls is perhaps the only thing worth stopping in the area for... Sorry Twin Fallsians. The falls are beautiful, and the park is a wonderful rest area for those travelling across the state. The grounds are well manicured, and there is plenty of space that even on a busy afternoon...

We were taken here by my niece, who lives nearby, on a visit and loved it. I did not notice any lack of water at all although she said it was low. There are piers with railings that jut out over the gap for a better view of the water below and falls. It was quiet windy though but still... More

We visited in September and even though there was not much water, it was still a beautiful place and an interesting spot from geological point of view. Added bonus - climbers on a nearby cliff.

Shoshone Falls is where the town of Twin Falls got its name. As the falls break into two distinct sets. But it won't look like it does in the photos you see unless it has been a good water year, and then will only be like that in the spring. The water flow is tightly controlled for power and irrigation... More

This is Mother Nature at her best! Fabulous. Drive a ways from town and you find the beautiful falls. Not (yet) like niagara, no hotels, restaurants; nothing but the majesty that is Shoshone falls. Well worth seeing and leaving the interstate for. The views are outstanding and seldom crowded. Bring a picnic lunch and stay awhile!

My mother grew up on a small farm less than 3 miles away, and often rode here on horseback, and when the water was high, they could hear the roar of the falls. She can also remember riding the ferry across when when was a little girl. Today, I live about 5 miles from this site and never cease to... More

The falls are great to see. I think best time is in the Spring when the snow fall is melting and the river is running higher.
