  • Breathtaking views, not only for looking at from a distance, but also up close if you like to kayak. Very inexpensive for sightseeing and a rich history to learn about as well.

  • Pictures make this place look small. It's huge
  • Shoshone falls park is absolutely worth the drive, worth the stop!! It is a gorgeous view, a beautiful grounds for having a picnic lunch, has restrooms to use, dog friendly, has a gift shop, and you can order lunch, snacks & drinks! The gal working the gift shop was SO nice! She was friendly, efficient, and down to earth. The view of the falls is spectacular, and we even made some new friends! Overall, I highly recommend stopping her for a while to visit and take in the beautiful views!
