Wait to go in spring or early summer to see the falls. We visited mid -September and there was no water flow.

Shoshone Falls, Twin Falls, holds a special place in my heart. I have made it a point to stop there over the last 20 years. We were told the water had been turned off the week before we got there. So, we wait... Hoping Construction really does restore the Falls to what nature intended.

When the Shoshone Falls is running in the spring time it is a sight to behold. They have picnic areas for lunch, restrooms and play area for the children. Plan on getting wet if you walk down the stairs to observe the falls. There is an admission I believe only in the summertime other then that no one mans the... More

The Rock for Formations are incredible, but the falls were not flowing I suggest calling ahead if you're going.

Water flow was diminished because of construction and being Aug, but it was still beautiful. Various sites along an overlook trail to view the falls. Several short trails in the area to get out and stretch.

We stopped by this seemingly beautiful park but sadly the falls are stopped at certain parts of the year so you just see a powerplant. The pictures make it seem great...we were sorry we missed it.

If you go here take a few extra minutes and take the walk up the canyon rim trail from the parking lot that lets you look down and back at the falls. It is an amazing sight. Be sure to call before your visit as they divert the falls through the hydro-electric plant often and at these times the falls... More

Water Fall on the SnakecRiver. It is impressive by its width and higth. Entrance to the parking and park area is via a narrow and steep road. The canyon created by the Snake River is about 500 feet deep which can be a problem for people scared of heights.

See it in the spring. Water is held back by dam. Stunning rock formations and views. Beautiful place for a picnic. Enjoy the small falls along the road.
