We took a detour here awaiting check in to our hotel. Amazing falls, site of Evil Knievel's jump, and a fun place for children to swim. The children must pass a swim test to go into the deeper water. My 6 yo daughter who is on swim team did not pass and tears were shed! They must swim freestyle very... More

The flow was just a trickle when we visited on July 23rd. The viewing platform is so high and out over the river. It's truly amazing!

Not a show stopper of water this time of year but a very nice place to visit and picnic. A better time of year would be spring time. Picnic grounds nice and clean.

Stopped in while traveling along the highway as a chance to let the kids out and run around. Beyond the spectacular views there is a ton of open grassy area for the kids to burn the energy. Worth the detour and the $3.00!

Gorgeous even though some water is diverted for irrigation this time of year. Our guests love the Snake River Canyon views.

There is a lot to see and learn even when the water flow is low at various times of the year. This is the Niagara Falls of the West.

Our family in Jerome took us to check out Shoshone Falls--and to get the pennies from the machine at the gift stand, which I collect. It was a hot summer day, and the park was busy with folks reveling in the sun. While the falls were impressive to us, my cousin noted that their flow was only a fraction of... More

We have been waiting for a long time to visit Shoshone Falls. We wanted the water to be strong because at certain times, they use if for irrigation and affects the waterflow of the falls. We always visit a website that has a live webcam and you can see the water level from there but from research, they said spring... More
