We have been to Shoshone Falls twice over the years. Pick your timing carefully. The first time we went there was hardly any water but the last time we went they had been having record rainfall and it was very impressive.

Spent about 30 minutes there on a trip in September when driving from Craters of the Moon to Heyburn. The waterfalls are very scenic and you can walk around a little. Worth a trip if in area.

Beautiful location! Very picturesque. Only a dribble going over the falls when we visited. Road leading to the falls was very narrow. Worth visiting.

The falls are very beautiful even outside of the higher water flow periods. There is a cash only entrance fee, but the collector was very nice and let us go to the gift shop with the debit card and get cash to give her on...More

Despite the fact there is virtually no water going over the falls during the dry season, this is a place worth visiting.

Though we’re not driving an RV, perhaps Twin Falls area might have a campground ? - Personally would not recommend attempting to descend the winding road down to Shoshone in an RV - it is steep, narrow, and full of curves.
