For only a few dollars per car, you have access to the trails around the falls as well as a lake you can swim in. Not something to miss if you are in the area.

Shoshone Falls is a great side trip if you are traveling along I-84. Entry is $3. There is a little store, bathrooms, a picnic area, and a number of viewing platforms to see the falls. The water level was down when I visited, but it was still impressive. I recommend checking out the trail that heads west (downstream) which takes... More

Shoshone Falls, the park, and trails are an unknown wonder you would never know is there from the interstate. Take the time to pull off and see the amazing can you, walk the trail, view the falls and picnic in the park.

Even with part of the falls shut off for construction efforts, the falls are still amazing. It has a nice park, easy access and plenty of displays to learn about the falls, the Snake River and local history

Regardless of the water flow, the area around the falls is great for hiking and exploring. If you are really traveling to only see the falls then check the live webcam first as the flow changes often. $3.00 per car is a bargain entrance fee and visitors of all ages can plan on spending 1 to 3 hours exploring the...

Low water year this year meant not as much action on the falls as some years, but this is still a beautiful place to visit. You should hike the trails and go to all the lookouts. Even with lower water levels, the falls are such an amazing site.

The falls were beautiful, and the written history at the park made us realize So Much about the region. We drove in with no expectations, and left with an education about the whole region, it was super cool. This is seriously the best $3.00 I've ever spent. I won't forget our visit, it was very informative and interesting. You come... More

It is hard to imagine anyone going to Twin Falls and not going to see these falls! Just a short drive from downtown is this amazing geological wonder! There are several viewing points each giving a particular advantage. The first is good for an overall look. though hides much of the spectical. The second has information kiosks and gives a... More

We were traveling through Idaho to go to Seattle and stopped in town for the night. After we ate breakfast we were about to head back out on our trip and my wife talked me into checking out the falls. We were all really surprised as to how beautiful it was. I just couldn't believe that this magnificent landmark was... More
