Shoshone Falls
Visit Shoshone Falls

If you're visiting the City of Twin Falls for the first time, Shoshone Falls, also known as the Niagara of the West, is a must-see. With a 212 foot drop and a width of 900 feet, it is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States.

The flows over the falls are seasonal runoffs from the mighty Snake River, which carves its way through deep basalt canyons and is the largest tributary to the Columbia River.

We recommend that if you would like to visit Shoshone Falls during peak water flows, that you visit between the months of April and July. You can also see live video of the falls 


The vehicle access fee at Shoshone Falls Park is $3 per car. Parks and Recreation begins charging this fee each year on March 1 and continuing through September.

Season passes to Shoshone Falls are $25 and are available to purchase at the Parks and Recreation Department building and the ticket booth at Shoshone Falls.
