This is a wonderful place to visit and take pictures, if you have a trailer/camper they have lovely spots to park your RV. The far side of the falls when you walk across the bridge often offers a bit of a mist on your body if the wind is blowing just right. Great relaxing place to visit and have lunch

These falls were absolutely beautiful. Very nice paths to see all views of the falls. I read from someone else's review to cross the bridge and see the falls from the other side as well. That is a definite must. It was $2.50 US money.

If you go to any provincial park you can go to another park anywhere up to 10 pm. We had stayed overnight at another park so was able to use our pass to go see the waterfalls. Nice walk way and visitor center. Many places to camp overnight in park. We actually camped at Happy Land RV Park be use... More

If you visit Thunder Bay you have to visit Kakabeka Falls. This attraction is on everyone's list in Thunder Bay when they have visitors from out of town. The Niagara Falls of the north is what some people call it. You can spend a few hours walking around the falls and enjoying the scenery. A few hours is likely all... More

If you expecting to see something along the scale of Niagara Falls you will be disappointed. We traveled up the North Shore on the Minnesota side, stopping to see as many of the falls as we could. One thing these falls have going for them is, the ease at which you can enjoy them. There is no hike through the... More

I visited these falls every time I have been to Thunderbay. It's definitely a Niagara experience. And the beauty of the falls is no less. U can walk from the bridge on the other side and then go for a walk on the trail also. Even camping is possible along the site.

There aren't a lot of hotels and restaurants near Kakabeka Falls (outside Thunder Bay in Ontario), but that's one of the things I liked about it. When you visit Niagara, you feel like you're running a gauntlet to get to the main attraction. At Kakabeka, there's not much between you and the thundering water, which is the whole point, right?...

It's a wonderful place. Must have to visit once in life time.. I like the view from the bridge and also they have great parking spots. You could also ride in to the forest and it's really fun. Watch for the sights. Enjoy

Beautiful waterfall that falls deep into a gorge. Very powerful in mid-May and worth the drive to see!
