Have not been to Niagra Falls, so cannot Shoshone falls to Niagra. But we were very impressed Shoshone falls. It is only $4 per car, what a bargain. They had one of the roads closed which goes up a little higher for a nice view....More

Awesome place. We didn't know what to expect because it's not famous. It's very good waterfall. We have to visit only in season where the water flow is high which may be only few weeks in a year. Generation of the electric power having side...More

this is so beautiful! Bring hats or rain gear as you need to be prepared for the mist coming off the "Niagara of the West". Just a short jaunt off the interstate. Don't miss it!

I am a waterfall nut and this one is an amazing gem! I had no idea such an attraction existed in Twin Falls and left my SLR camera at home. That won't happen on my next visit!

This was a pleasant surprise, we were totally not expecting these views. Handicapped accessible and an easy walk to enjoy the park.

I've been to Niagra Falls dozens of times, but these were just as amazing. Beauty at every level. Don't miss this!

A short drive off the interstate and a great detour to take. After stopping at the Visitor Center at the Perinne Bridge, head west another few miles for a treat. The twisty turny road down in to the canyon was short and the view once...More

These falls are beautiful & well worth the short drive. We were at Niagara Falls last month & these are as beautiful to look at in their own right! Make them a priority even if just driving through Twin Falls, ID.

We had no idea of the power and beauty we would find at this true Wonder of the world. The air temperature was in the mid-80's. Misty gusts and breezes accented by glorious rainbows, appeared out of nowhere, around the entire panorama. After a particularly...More

I didn't fish but I saw a couple of boys plunking in the canyon below the bridge at Twin Falls. good luck.
Just trying to pull off 84 for a quick view of the bridge and the falls. Where is the best place for us to find and park to see the falls?

It is a little bit of a drive off I84 week days are less busy, or earlier in the day. It also can be a little wet. We got soaked from the spray. There is a small entrance fee. Well worth it.

Is there flooding now in the Twin Falls area? Weather Underground shows an active flood warning.

I haven't heard of any flooding since February. I live 3 hours drive away so your best bet would be to contact the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce or Visitors' Center.
