This was breathtaking! I have always wanted to go to Niagra Falls and Kakabeka Falls was so amazing! We walked on the trails around the falls and it was just awesome! There is a snack bar on the grounds with restrooms, but it was closed for lunch when we stopped. Interesting to see all park employees having lunch together at... More

So glad we decided to stop at Kakabeka Falls. You can drive over and across the top part of the falls on a small bridge, and see the other side of the falls and small gift shop. Falls are larger than they look in the brochures and photos. Great photo opportunity.

Living in the Niagara Region, a trip to Niagara Falls every few years of course happens. It is a tourist nightmare! On the other hand, Kakabeka Falls is quiet, no tourist traps and easily accessible. We were staying at nearby Sleeping Giant PP, so we did not have to pay an entrance fee. The entrance fee for day visits is... More

Best thing about these falls is how close you can get. Very little stairs and viewing points on both side accessible via a bridge. Takes about an hour to enjoy each vantage point but we pull out our travel chairs, drinks and a little music and sat in the sun for another hour. Cost was $5.25 CAN for 2 hours.

If anywhere near the falls, it is definitely worth seeing. Very similar to the High Falls in Grand Portage, MN just an hour away, but very accessible to see and without stairs to climb or a long hike. Allow an hour at least to walk around and see from various vantage points. Sit and just enjoy the beauty, sound and... More

I was fortunate enough to see the falls after many days of rain, so the waterway was engorged and roaring. I was informed that this is not always the case, and that sometimes the flow is cut to nearly a trickle by both the hydroelectric plant further up the river and generally low water levels. Still, seeing it today, I... More

About 20 miles north of Thunder Bay, the mighty 40 meter high Kakabeka Falls is a marvel. You have just a short walk from the parking lot to the falls. Access to these lovely falls is excellent on well-maintained boardwalks and platforms as well as a bridge crossing above the Kaministiquia River as it plunges over the falls and into... More

It's like a mini Niagra. How amazing these falls are and very impressive! The water was a brownish color, and our host told our daughter that it was Dr. Pepper. She believed him.. was funny. I have to say this was one of the highlights of our tour. So beautiful. The gift shop could have more gifts in it. I... More

We had been debating whether to include Kakabeka falls in our itinerary for our family's 20 day Trans Canada Road Odyssey from Toronto to the Rockies and back, a 15,000 km trip. In the end, since we found we could make a slight detour from Thunder Bay to see Kakabeka Falls and proceed to Quetico Provincial Park on the same... More
