Stopped by Sioux Falls for one night on a road trip, and decided to check out the park while we were in town. So glad we did! This is a great experience, and absolutely beautiful. My boys (ages 11 & 8) had so much fun climbing on the rocks all around the area, and we got some really good pictures!... More

Great park around the beautiful falls. Easy to locate, plenty of parking and nice area for a stroll. Easy transit down from the Air Port.

Very large park and a walk way to look at the falls on both sides of the Sioux River. We went to the farmers market Saturday morning, which was wonderful.

We visited in June and it was flowing very well which is a good thing bc if it was dry it wouldn't be much of a park. We parked in a lot near the tall look out building and walked on a nice paved path throughout the park. The bridge let's you walk over the falls a little ways down... More

Definitely go check this out if you are in Sioux Falls, even if you only have an hour. That is all we had in our way through between dinner and needing to get to the hotel. An hour was plenty of time to walk around and see everything although you could spend several hours there. It was nice to be... More

We stopped in Sioux Falls on our way across the country and spend a day in the park with our dog and we are so glad we did. It is gorgeous. It is perfect for a walk, picnic, photography, weddings... There is a gift shop and lookout tower which offered beautiful views from above. It is definitely a popular destination... More

Bring your camera, it is well lighted at night. Close to downtown for eats & drinks. Nice parking area on each side of the falls.

Good place to star with a tour on the trolls. Only $1 and you can get on and off. Trolly goes very slowly up and down the downtown area. Good for an overview. Not much to see in the whole town. Found the trolley useful in not having to worry about parking. Driver full iof good in fo the downtown.

I have two kids that live in Sioux Falls, so I get there quite often...when the weather is good, we love to visit the falls. Kids and adults love it..it is absolutely beautiful, lots of rocky surfaces to climb, lots of picnic areas, historic areas to walk to , everything is quite close, you don't need to walk forever to...
