If you are visiting in the Thunder Bay area, and Kakabeka Falls is in the area of your journeys, you should pop in for a look. I grew up in Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay) and have been there many times in the last 40 years.

My girlfriend was raised in Thunder Bay so had been to the falls many times before but as I was visiting for the first time from Scotland I had never been to Kakabeka Falls before. I must say it was beautiful. I could spend all day just watching the water. I found it very hypnotic.

After a heavy rainfall I like to go and visit Kakabeka Falls. It was breath taking as always! Close to the falls is the town of Kakabeka which has some nice places to eat. The Kakabeka hotel isn't fancy but the food is excellent!

Awesome waterfalls and great natural beauty all around. Take to the trails and enjoy the hiking throughout the park for all skill levels. Great beach area for picnics and swimming. Camping with electrical hookups and hot showers. Even got some laundry done.

Pretty impressive. Think about it. It is the second largest waterfall in the whole country of Canada. And we are a family that enjoys seeking out waterfalls. No hiking to this one. Visitor center was closed. Not sure if it was for the season or because it was a Friday and maybe open only on weekends in October. It was... More

We had a lovely time visiting Kakabeka Falls and I'd return to see it in every season if I could. Trails around the falls are well marked and map provided by information desk was easy to follow. We had a lovely time and took our time walking around trying to drink in the beauty of the place. We were lucky... More

This is a well organized park with a good walkway to view this magnificent site. We come for a visit every time we are in the area. It has been nicely upgraded since our last visit 15 years ago although now there is a small entry fee.

The golden leaves, bright blue sky, white and diamond water rushing over Kakabeca Falls in mid October - pure exhilaration. The park is gorgeous. Any time of the year.
