    I took a quick stop here while passing through and got some wonderful photos. It was worth my time as I enjoy seeing what nature has to offer wherever my travels take me.  more »

    Definitely worth the stop. Beautiful waterfalls cascading near a historic building. Great photo ops. Also a beautiful, huge, well maintained park.  more »

    The park developed around the falls is very well done. Peaceful and serene. They have done an excellent job of incorporating the downtown around it. Bring a picnic!  more »

    Beautiful place to sit or explore a little. Multiple gorgeous falls. There's an overlook tower to climb if you'd like to see the surrounding area. There's also a restaurant/bar overlooking the falls and river. Recommended stop if in Sioux Falls.

    I love this place. Peaceful and serene! Lots of cool spots. Lots of history here. Free admission Would have liked to see from the observation tower at sundown but the gift store closed it five minutes earlier then what was posted.

    Beautiful water falls. Fun to see the geese with babies, tower had elevator so easy to get to top. Hard to navigate up and hills with my wheelchair

    The view of the falls are so beautiful with the Jasper rocks within the falls. The scenes by the falls is just so serene. Anyone who loves to be around water like I do, will find this park absolutely breathtaking and peaceful to sit at. As a Storm Chaser, I love taking pics and videos, not just of storms, but also locations where God Almighty has created such beauty. Today was another one of those days where I was glad to have the time to get lots of beautiful breathtaking pics and videos.
