Glad we paid a visit to these falls. They are huge and there is lots of viewing points. The price is quite cheap as you can go to multiple spots with it. We will have to come back again next time we are in the area.

Love going to the falls, it is never the same view. Rainbows are beautiful coming off the falls. The water is always changing depending on how much water is being released. Great place to have a picnic.

We went during the late fall/winter. The falls weren't at peak flow, but enjoyable nonetheless. Nice overlook and substantial parking. Picnic area.

This was very impressive , we were here Feb 19 and were told they would not be that full, as it was better in the spring with the snow melt, but I could not imagine it being any better. Well worth the trip.

Been here before, it's beautiful when the water is flowing! Not so much to look at when the water is not flowing. Nice hiking trails too but not at this time of year.

Stop in the visitor center by the bridge over the Snake River and ask if the falls are running. If they are, take Falls Avenue to the west. Turn left at 3300 (there is a church on this corner). The park by the falls is very nice. There is a snack bar in the summer as well. You may also... More

I have been to Shoshone Falls many times and it is very impressive in the spring (usually about April, when the snow is melting in the mountains and the irrigation water isn't all diverted into the canals yet). The weather is still a little cool but the water flow is much better. Later in the year is warmer and still... More

Just on the outskirts of town is this incredible natural wonder. Went late in the day, just before dark and thee was nobody at the entrance gate ...not surprising as it was a blustery cold day. Went to a paved viewing spot near the parking lot and took in the view which was beautiful. A watchout for visitors - it... More
