Stopped at the falls deemed Niagara of the North which were almost frozen. Stairs go around and across the falls to get a view from angles. Beautiful spot to stop and see if driving around Thunder Bay.

I've visited Kakabeka Falls many times in all seasons. It always provides beautiful views and great photos. Parking is easy and reasonable. A short walk brings you to a viewing platform for the best view of the falls. The gift shop is mall, but nice, and has reasonably priced souvenirs.

We stopped in here on our way along the Trans-Canada. This is a provincial park and one of the better ones for traffic flow and organization. We were impressed. There are wooden decks and galleries for looking at the falls. They have pretty much covered all the needs of tourists, except perhaps that they have allowed some trees (which were... More

Kakabeka is one of the best waterfalls we have ever seen. Such a wonderful series of rock ledges and voluminous flow in the River created a special site to behold. There are many walkways, bridges, etc. to offer different angles to view and take pictures if you desire. The Provincial Park offers camping and some other amenities, but the Falls... More

A lovely spot with easy access for our wheel chair friend, the Falls were beautiful with a backdrop of autumn leaves. We saw a pair of eagles perched high in trees in the gorge below the falls and watched them fish - a real treat. The Falls are not far from Thunder Bay, maybe an easy 30 minute drive, well... More

Understated beauty within a 30 minute's drive of Thunder Bay. The overlooks provide great vantage points and the scenery causes you to be still in awe. Worth it!

We stopped here on our way to Northern Manitoba so our daughter in law could take some photographs. A very gorgeous park that I would like to spend some time hiking through. Good place to stop and stretch your legs. You do need to stop at the gate and I think we paid $3/car.

No, not for the volume of water, which is hard to match, but for the similar block to navigation it posed in years past. You will find the park with the "last spike" for the Lake Superior railroad near here as well. this used to be a major problem for travel west to east. Now it's just a great falls... More

A must see! Absolutely beautiful! Lots of ground to cover for those who like to wander - many different lookouts with different views. Grounds immaculate.

We visited Niagara Falls a few days before going here, Kakabeka Falls are a lot smaller, but much nicer and very scenic. Small visitor centre and restrooms available.
