Ouimet canyon has some of the most spectacular views I have ever seen. The canyon is just amazing to look at. There are two overview areas for the canyon - be sure to see them both. One interesting item: the interpretive display incorrectly measured the depth of the canyon at 1000 km - that would be one deep canyon. It... More

We did a quick stop here on a circle tour and we were so glad we did! It is a bit of a hike to get here off the highway but so worth it. It is a nice walk to the viewing platforms, not hard at all, and truly only about half an hour total. Once you get to the... More

This little gem is about 10 km off the highway. It is by donation with a suggested donation of $2 per person. There is a great short hike to two viewing platforms with spectacular views of the canyon. Bathrooms are also available. An awesome stop for families, people travelling with pets or anyone who just wants to stretch their legs... More

We picked this park for a walk to stretch our legs in the midst of a long drive. It was a little further off the highway than we realized (ten kilometers), but well worth it in my opinion. On the way up to the park, we saw a mama bear and her cub crossing the road. At the canyon, we... More

If you have the time you must see this. It is so beautiful the view. You walk to two different platforms and see the beauty of this. Take your time and enjoy this. They do have a small gift shop too. This is not handicap accessible. Lots of stairs.

Must see place. Together with Sleeping Giant PP and Neys PP shows how beautiful this area of Canada is. Very easy short walk to viewing platforms allow close view of canyon's walls. Great view.

I never knew this place existed until we decided to do a road trip from Kingston ON to Winnipeg MB stopping at various attractions along the way. It was gorgeous. We are lucky to live in a country with such wonders of nature. Take your time and explore the canyon. It's worth the trip.

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!
