The City of Twin Falls purchased Dierkies Lake in 1969. This 191 acre park is the perfect place to host a family barbecue, or to cool off in the lake during the hot summer days.

The park also includes a 1.7 mile walking trail (not paved) that goes around the lake. A seasonal concession stand, seasonal life guards (June-August), a play ground, and many picnic tables that are open for public use.

There is a $3 vehicle fee to enter the Diekies lake and Shoshone Falls area from March through September.

Non motorized boats, kayaks, and canoes are allowed on Dierkies Lake.
