Hiking around the lake above the Falls will add more spice to the visit. Very very fun place to hike, wish we had swimming gear with us so we could have dove in the lake! Down side of the park was too much garbage and dog droppings. If these are cleaned up, the place should get 5 stars, my opinion.

Only one side of the fall had water flow...disappointing; drove a long way. The rest of the park was average. More like a place for a picnic.

My husband and I recently visited Shoshone Falls, which is larger and wider than Niagara Falls. It takes almost two hours to travel to it from Boise, but it is well worth the trip. Shoshone Falls is beautiful and awe-inspiring.

Fantastic views all around, we had taken the dinner cruise and were totally amazed at the scenery. Food on the cruise was very good also.

We paid our $3.00 car fee and went to both the lake and Shoshone Falls. The twin falls are beautiful. There is also an area that gives information about the falls as well as a gift store.

The Falls are beautiful am impressive, but so is the whole park surrounding them. Don't miss them if you travel through this area.

Small fee per car ($3 or $5.) Many areas to take photos that are accessible by car. There is a beautiful park that offers swimming and rock diving. Benches, Biking, Drinking Fountain, Grills, Open Green Space, Picnic Tables, Restrooms, and Trails and Boat Launch.

Beautiful, don't miss! If you come to see the twin falls and miss Shoshone falls, you've only seen 1/2 the sight. No extra effort = 2x the view!

Great views, opportunities for hiking, and super photographs. They are supposed to be higher than Niagara!
