Shoshone Falls is a waterfall on the Snake River in southern Idaho, located around 3 miles northeast of the city of Twin Falls. Some people call it the “Niagara of the West”. Located at the edge of Twin Falls, Shoshone Falls is a natural delight on the Snake River. At 212 feet, the falls are higher than Niagara Falls. The falls offer many facilities such as playgrounds, hiking trails, picnic areas, a boat ramp, swimming area, and a scenic overlook. It is family friendly and it has astonishing natural views.

The falls are best viewed during the spring and early summer when there are good chances of high water flows (depending on winter snow melt). Water system preoccupation of Snake River streams can essentially decrease water over the falls in the late spring and fall, especially amid dry years. However, even without high water flows, the views at Shoshone Falls remain marvelous and breathtaking all year.

The cost for admission at Shoshone Falls Park is $3.00 per car (subject to change) with more than enough parking space.

Parks and Recreation begin charging admission each year on March 30 and continues through September.  For more information visit City of Twin Falls, ID
