Just a few dollar entrance fee lets you see these pretty falls. There are plenty of viewing places that give you a different perspective and photos of the falls. Make sure you check out the webcam to see how the falls are flowing before you go.

Although we visited during the heat of the summer it was well worth the stop. The park in front of the falls is so green and lush it's a perfect picnic spot. We didn't hike as much as we wanted to because it was 100 degree heat but we did plenty of walking around. The falls are spectacular -- perfect... More

The falls must be impressive when in full flow. The rock river bed is mammoth. At the time we visited, the water was diverted due to construction by the power company. It gave us a chance to see the underlying geological structure without the water present. The evidence of dynamic change of the earth is evident here. Many cataclysmic events... More

Stopped here from Yellowstone, to view the waterfalls. It costs $3 per car....and it'll be the best $3 you'll spend! Once you've taken in the view of the fabulous falls, a further 5 minute drive and you have a lovely oasis with lush green grass, small shop and swimming in a designated area complete with life guards. (Unlike most lifeguards,... More

July is not the best month to see the falls in full splendor. But still a very nice site. When the water is high it has to be spectacular!

After seeing the Perrine Bridge and walking along the trail by the Visitor's Center, I wanted more exercise. I arrived at a great time for photos, 7pm. The sun was on my back. I have seen Niagara Falls, and I believe this to be just as beautiful. I was able to have a small walk, but wished they had more... More

Although they now charge an entrance fee it is well worth it when the water is running full over the falls.... magnificent! It is still very awesome to see it if for no other reason than to be able to say you were there! If you are more adventurous you can go downriver and rent a kayak and paddle upriver...... More

The falls was easy to find a beautiful drive. You only have to pay 3 dollars to park your car. We went on a Friday evening and there was hardly anyone there. They have trails a large picnic area and the view of the falls was beautiful. We are glad we stopped to see it
