It only costs three dollars per car to access the falls and they are within a five minute or less walk from your car. We were there in late June and the water was really flowing, with mists and a spectacular rainbow. There is an...More

Awesome place. We didn't know what to expect because it's not famous. It's very good waterfall. We have to visit only in season where the water flow is high which may be only few weeks in a year. Generation of the electric power having side...More

this is so beautiful! Bring hats or rain gear as you need to be prepared for the mist coming off the "Niagara of the West". Just a short jaunt off the interstate. Don't miss it!

Sorry, I didn't see your question until now and I'm not a fisher anyway so I don't know.

Just trying to pull off 84 for a quick view of the bridge and the falls. Where is the best place for us to find and park to see the falls?

It is a little bit of a drive off I84 week days are less busy, or earlier in the day. It also can be a little wet. We got soaked from the spray. There is a small entrance fee. Well worth it.

Is there flooding now in the Twin Falls area? Weather Underground shows an active flood warning.

I haven't heard of any flooding since February. I live 3 hours drive away so your best bet would be to contact the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce or Visitors' Center.
