This was a beautiful sight to see. Even though we were there in the winter, there was still enough water to make the falls beautiful. The concession stand was not open but there is ample parking and viewing areas.

I stopped here on a roadtrip between Washington and Utah - great sight to see and stretch the legs. No entrance fees! Not a whole lot of parking here, and it seemed to be a bit popular with the post-holiday crowd, but didn't feel too...More

I grew up here and before they fenced it all off, we would climb down and swim in the deep holes in the late summer or fall when the falls barely had water. It's amazing none of us were injured. Definitely plan to see it...More

Outstanding and breathtaking from during heavy run-off from snow melting in the mountains. Spring to mid-Summer is best time to visit. Shoshone Falls is 42ft higher than Niagara and will multiple cascading falls, it's fantastic.

They call them the western Niagara Falls and even though while I was there, there was not to much water I definitely found the scenery beautiful and I am happy I stopped by and visited this part of Idaho and the USA.

The Fallls was closed when we visited in October. Still pretty scenic. Nice lady at the park entrance kiosk will let you know the park is closed and if you wished to proceed with the entrance fee.

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.

Read a small article about these falls in an obscure travel magazine and decided to make them a destination. Wow! What a thrilling natural encounter. They are actually 45 feet higher than Niagara Falls. There is a small entrance fee but it is well worth...More

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.

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.
