Niagara of the West (Shoshone)

Definitely stop. Came here, parked our 22 trailer in RV parking spaces for 4 or 5. Hillside shaded park and picnic- gift stand/concession. Many photo op overlooks.

Drought has the falls looking a bit dry these days.

Falls diverted for winter.

Shoshone Falls Park

The water has been mostly diverted for irrigation so, at least when we were there, January, there was no water flowing over the rocks.

The car fee as of today is $5 and is worth the fee. We went today at low water flow level and it was beautiful. Love to see it again at high!

Just be careful if you go to the falls in the winter... there's no water there!
