History

Twin Falls Resort State Park was named for Foley Falls and Black Fork Falls, which are found on park grounds. The park was built on 3,776 acres of land donated in 1964 by the Western Pocahontas Corporation and Pocahontas Land Corporation. In the following years, a golf course, cabins and swimming pool were constructed. The lodge was completed in 1970. During the park’s development in the mid-1970s, a pioneer homestead was reconstructed, and has since become the crown jewel of the park. A major renovation to the lodge, completed in 2011, added 27 additional rooms, an indoor swimming pool and fitness center.

Dining

Twin Falls Restaurant is open year-round for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dessert and children’s menu options and boxed lunches for golfers are available.

The current open hours are Monday and Tuesday from 12 – 8 p.m. Wednesday – Sunday 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. A continental breakfast is extended to overnight guests on Monday and Tuesday. Click here for more information about Twin Falls Restaurant and services.

Additional Information

Disc Golf

Twin Falls Resort State Park offers a 9-hole disc golf course. The first hole starts on the knoll across from the Nature Center and weaves through the woods and finishes on the opposite side of the nature center. White diamond markers lead golfers on the course trail. Woodland hazards come into play and sharpen a player’s skill set and accuracy.

Bring your own disc or borrow and return a disc from the nature center during open hours. There is no fee to play. Disc golf at Twin Falls is an excellent course to become familiar with the game on a short course. Additionally the ballfield is an open area to simply practice disc (frisbee) throwing.

Parking is very limited at the nature center. There is ample parking in the unpaved lot as you enter the road to the amphitheater and Shelter #4. Players will see a ‘Disc Golf Course’ sign which is right in front of where play begins.
