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.

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.

Went to the Falls to have a picnic and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Falls. The picnic area is so nice, groomed and well taken car of with big beautiful trees for shade. The Falls are incredible. We took some pictures on the observation deck with the Falls behind us. There is a walking path from the park and... More

Spent the day at the falls with wife and was very impressed. The view alone just made you say wow!! And if you need a snack while you are there, they have a concession stand.

Did not expect something like this in the middle of Twin Falls. $3 per car to get in, many observation decks, and trails to stretch your legs. Completely worth the stop.

We drove out to Shoshone Falls and found it quite exciting to see, especially from the observation deck as well as walking around and feeling its spray, hearing its roar, and photographing and videoing its awesomeness.

Shoshone Falls is a beautiful place and is well worth going to. I’d have to echo all of the superlatives by other reviewers. As another reviewer says, sadly the water levels are down, and the Falls were not cascading like they would with higher levels. I’d say the Falls are not to be missed even when not at maximum flow.... More
