Shoshone Falls Is Open And Waiting For You


By Joey Martin

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) "Niagara of the West"... That's the nickname locals have dawned Shoshone Falls. And the name seems to fit.

For almost 80 years Shoshone Falls Park has been a primary socializing spot for locals in the area.

But as residents know, sometimes the water just isn't flowing.

But right now... that's not the case.

The Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department is happy to announce that for the next week or so Shoshone Falls will be flowing at about 2,000 cubic feet per second.

That means about half of the falls is flowing strong.

Giving residents and tourist alike a spectacular sight to see.

But it’s not just the falls that make up the park.

"We like to say Shoshone Falls is much more than the falls itself. We have a beautiful park... go down there and spend an afternoon of the whole day down there and it's well worth it."
Said Parks and Recreation Department Director, Dennis Bowyer

As Dennis said, there is much more than just the falls at the park.

The entire area includes miles of hiking trails, boating areas, swimming areas and ample park space to enjoy your evenings.

The park is open 7 days a week from 8 in the morning to 8 in the evening.

Starting in April an entry fee is enforced at 3 dollars a car.

Or you can buy a season pass for 25 dollars at the park entrance.
