What a shock. Where's the water!! A sign says Starting April 1 they will put water over the falls. We will be long gone by then.

You can pay to enter the park area and take advantage of the activities, but there are several areas to pull off the road and take in the view. Its beautiful!

Went to the Shoshone Falls after reading how they were considered the Niagara Falls of the west. Between the low water and the construction on the Falls there wasn't a lot to see. Made a detour off the Interstate and (at least on the day we went) it was very disappointing.

We stopped here on our way to the west coast and I'm glad we did. The area we were at had a parking lot. We walked down a trail to different view points of the falls and also relaxed in the grass area that had tables. We didn't realize that there is a separate area we could have gone to... More

We enjoyed driving to the falls and walking around - We went during the evening and it was lovely. There is a nice grassy area - people were enjoying all the different aspects of this place.

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.
