If you have a day on your trip to Thunder Bay take the time to visit Ouimet Canyon. The flora and birds are always changing so any time of the year is good. The bottom of the canyon offers a complete diffrent ecosystem than the lip. The association that takes care of the canyon have constructed boardwalks around the rim... More

One of the nicest places I've ever visited. Absolutely worth the travel. Staff, on the contrary to Eagle Canyon, is very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to visiting it again in the future!

A short drive off of the Trans Canada highway but well worth it, This was my favorite stop on the circle tour. Besides the hike in the park to the canyon and the gorgeous view we also followed the tourist signs to Canada's longest zip line and longest suspension bridge. Yes it was expensive but good fun!

This is not a first time we have visited Quimet Canyon and we were impressed by the improvements to the trails and bridge. This is definitely worth the stop - a bit of a drive in and up - but you'll appreciate the views and wildlife when you get there. There is no fee but a donation is accepted. We... More

Reading about the 300 ft drop from the lookout to the floor of the canyon does not do the view justice. As you round the corner heading to the first lookout it is a bit of shock and awe to see the other side of the canyon. It is larger than what we expected. The 300 ft vertical drop takes... More

How easy it is to pass by the turnoff to Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park as you travel highway 17 east of Thunder Bay. To pass it by is to miss one of the premier attractions of Ontario, and a gem of a Provincial Park. I keeping with the Nature Preserve character of the Park, no camping is allowed, but camping...

Somewhat disappointing from what I remember. I had been to the canyon before and remembered a very different site. First they say it is wheelchair accessible but be very aware of this. I rented a scooter in Thunder Bay as I am unable to walk any long distance. Without the scooter I would have never made it to the lookout.... More

Ouimet Canyon is about an hour from Thunder Bay going east. It has a magnificent view. Nearby is Eagle Canyon which has the world's longest suspension bridge as well as Canada's longest zip line. Again a wonderful view. I did not try the zip line but those who did seemed to enjoy it. The view from the bridge is spectacular.... More

This park is a few miles off the main highway, but is still easy to get to. We were there in early July, and one of only a handful of people there. The guys at the information station were friendly enough but not real enthusiastic. One guy kept going back to sit in his car with the radio on loudly... More

The hike to this canyon is just an average walk thru the woods, nothing special there. But the canyon itself is amazing. The people at the park office were very friendly and helpful, as well.
