Went during off season. The cafe was closed. The waterfalls were relaxing to watch and listen too. A good 45 minute visit.

Beautiful at Autumn.Wish the Cafe was open ..good gift shop. Love the art sculptures especially the seated farmer and large carved buffalo. Would suggest that others come to the Falls of Souix Falls...and thanks travel downtown for lunch and a stop at Mrs Murphys and Mama Lada's.

Even though we've been through Sioux Falls before, I never actually knew there was such a nice park along the river or that the falls were actually this impressive. This was just lovely and we were quite impressed. The park covers 123 acres, and on average, 7,400 gallons of water fall 100-feet over the course of the Falls each second.... More

The Falls are very pretty but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to see them. We had hoped to get some sunset photos but we're too late. Be prepared for the strong sulfur odor.

This place is amazing! It is not hard to find, and is absolutely stunning. We spent more than an hour, walking around and taking in the breathtaking views. Be sure to come back at night, because it's equally beautiful then.

We stopped at this park on the way back from Mount Rushmore to see the waterfalls. Lots of walking sidewalks & great views of the falls from different angles with a bridge & flat rocks to walk on. The wind was high but we still climbed to the top of the look out tower. Great view of the park. About... More

What a wonderful place to visit! It takes a bit of searching to find from the east side of town to find it, but a successful search is well worth the effort. We got there in the evening as the sun was going down, so we got to see the falls in day light and as the lights came on.... More

This place was a wreck some years ago. The city of Sioux Falls has put heart and soul into it. Beautiful easy walkways allows one to see the falls from many angles.

Falls park is a must see, even if you only have a short time while traveling through the area. It has great walking trails, some of which are easily accessible.

It is really something to see. Well worth the stop. So many different views of the water rushing down over the various rock formations. Interesting history of the building skeletons still standing. Also a restaurant to stop and eat and enjoy the view. Great spots to take photos.

Thank Mike O
