We were visiting Thunder Bay and took the 30 minutes trip to the falls, and we sure we're glad we did! The admission was $5 per car for one hour. We hiked both sides of the river, stopped in the gift shop and we're on our way within the hour. Just the right amount of time. The falls make for... More

On a nice clear day this is a great half day or whole day trip! At the time I did this whole attraction on crutches. I didnt let this stop me but it was HARD work. They did have walk ways and it is acceptable for people in wheelchairs and scooters. One of the look outs on the far side... More

This was definitely a highlight on our day trip to Ontario from MN! WOW the falls were completely amazing and a site to see. Worth the trip!

This was a great stop along the way. Soul rejuvenating- the area is absolutely beautifull; you can see where the falls where thousands of years ago.

Take your camera because you are going to want to take plenty of pictures of these waterfalls. They are spectacular. From the right angle, you'll see rainbows playing in the falls, and feel the spray on your face. Nice gift shop too, where you can pick up souvenirs for yourself or the young ones you know. Regarding the campground. Be... More

We saw many falls on this trip and this was the very best. Very easy to get to. Just pay a little parking fee by the hour, walk a few steps and you are awed. Just what I dream a falls should be. The color of the water is golden red. Great places for pictures. Walk across the bridge and... More

This is where we found out our dog was a "trail" dog.... she LOVES the trails in and around the area, and she even took us on the highest rated trails that took us down by the river for a scenic view of "little falls"... We camped in the area, and hiked up and down hills, found a good place... More

Smallish Provincial Park that one can pay by the hour to visit. One can see the falls from both sides. It's a 100' scenic waterfall the splits into two main diversions. Other than that......not much more. Kinda disappointed.

Drove here during a weekend visit to Thunder Bay. The drive out is not very scenic but it is a quick half hour and totally worth it. The park costs $3 per hour to park a car and you can see the falls from several vantage points in that time. Also, trails etc. if you want to stay longer. The... More

Kakabeka Falls is very easy to get to from Thunder Bay on HWY 11/17 and is just off the highway. The falls are just off the parking lot and require very little walking. We paid only $3CAD for an hour in the park and in that hour we were able to view the falls from several vantage points on both... More
