Easy access, don't miss this! Bring a camera and binoculars. There is a deck and a fabulous foot bridge.

Kakabeka Falls was the highlight of our short trip to Thunder Bay. It is about a 20 minute drive from the city. With lots of walkways, the park makes it easy to see the falls at their most breathtaking. The visitors center is small but worth a visit. We would recommend giving yourself an hour to enjoy the views.

Kakabeka Falls is a 20-minute drive from Thunder Bay, and is well worth the trip. It's nice to have an attraction like this that doesn't require a long hike to get to the main event. There is no fee to see the falls, but parking starts at $3CA for an hour. There were a lot of hikers and cyclists during... More

It's a very nice falls, but there's not too many falls that aren't nice. Nothing for trails, just a few vantage points to view the falls from. Does fill a 1.5 hour time gap if you need a filler, but don't feel bad if you miss this one while in the Thunder Bay area.

I enjoy seeing the different water Falls this was flowing really well. It was nice to see the different views of it and walk around on the platforms.

Having visited here at previous visits to area, was still impressed. Falls not as wild, as has been in the past---nor as calm as at other times Just a wonderful spot to visit with family. Enjoy their little gift shop!

Stayed in the area wanting to see the falls, but didn't realize how big they would be. Great area for walking and also a boardwalk area that goes around both sides of the falls. Bring your camera!

The Kakabeka Falls is a must see for everyone. The views are spectacular, perfect if you are on a budget as all you need to do is pay for parking. Make sure you check out both sides of the falls, to get to the other side just walk over the bridge, there is also a little gift shop/information centre on... More

Big, loud waterfall. Make sure you see it from all viewing angles on both sides of the river and from the bridge. Views are spectacular.

So glad we went to see these beautiful falls while in Canada. You can choose your price for parking depending on how long you will be. There is parking right next to the entrance with a very short walk to a viewing area. I would also recommend going across the bridge to the other side where there is a visitor... More
