I was a little concerned about traveling out of my way as my boys (13 and 11) and I were headed up from SLC to the Tetons (with much more driving after that) and reviewers kept mentioning low water flow in August. It was absolutely gorgeous in August and my boys were amazed at the beauty. We added zip lining... More

Even in low water flow its pretty amazing area to see and hike. Also take some cash, its $3.00 to park and they don't take plastic.

This is a very beautiful setting and the falls are very impressive. They actually are the best in the spring when the snow is melting. There are places for picnics.

The falls are gorgeous at high water or not. Its even more amazing to kayak to the base of the falls. its about 7 miles round trip, starting from Centennial Park. You will go under the Perrine Bridge (and possibly watch base jumpers :) and then a short portage around pillar falls and you are on your way. We made... More

Visited in August 2014 - nice but nothing like the claim of the West's Niagra Falls - not in August anyway when the water levels are low. But based on the pictures on the information boards at the falls if you come in May they put on quite a show! Ditto Twin Falls just up the road 2 miles.

We first stopped at the Snake River Overlook which was awesome. A gentleman asked if we had visited Shoshone Falls and said it was worth the trip. He was right. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Nice parking area, well kept grounds and sidewalks. Nice break while on the road. There is a small fee $2.00... More

Our family has visited 38 states and decided to drive here from Park City as our "Idaho" visit. We love waterfalls, and these are gorgeous, even in the summer. Kids enjoyed a short hike to get a better view.

The falls are beautiful, It does cost $6 to get in. It has nice clean lookout points. It was borderline dry that day. I went at the wrong time of the year.

My wife and I stopped at the falls on a cross country road trip due to the great reviews they had on this and other websites. We could not have been more disappointed. The viewing area is run by the city and is not part of the national/state park service, but it's still cheap to get in. The place has... More
