Enjoy climbing on the rocks around the falls after having a picnic in the park. This is right along the bike path and easily accessible by either car or bike. If you're feeling a little adventurous go to the top of the observation tower for an excellent view of the falls. One downfall is that sometimes the smell of the... More

It's the Sioux Falls. Not far from the town with easy access. We chose to take the trolley which runs about every 30 mins. There is a nice cafe next to the falls too. Fun for the family.

its really pretty and worth stopping at however theres no safety features to prevent children from falling into the water jumping around on the rocks. and as the world works not everyone watches their kids.

My kids do not have very good patient and attention span, but they LOVED it. We spent some time in the tower, but ended up walking and taking pictures for hours. We stayed for the night lighting and it gave this natural gem a totally different perspective. My kids still talk about it. If in the area, this is a... More

Definitely a place worth going to see. However, we were anticipating a little "more" seeing as this is the 3rd rated tourist attraction in the area. We maybe spent 30 minutes there and were thinking we'd be there for hours. One thing I wish to have saw would have been a playground area for kids somewhere in the park. Otherwise,... More

This waterfall has to be on your bucket list. The Sioux granite makes it a site to behold. Go back at night time to see it under the lights.

The lights on the Falls at night are just magnificent. I was once there at Christmas time and could not believe the lovely way it was decorated. This is truly a gem for the City of Sioux Falls to have.

The Sioux Falls were majestic and beautiful. You could just stare for hours and listen to the sound of the falling water. Don't leave Sioux Falls without seeing them!

We stopped in Sioux Falls on our way from Fargo to Omaha. The falls are beautiful. Great Park. We spent about 3 hours here walking the trails and climbing the observation tower.
