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!

While not anywhere near the size of Niagara Falls, you will want to stop by Kakabeka Falls in your visit to Thunder Bay. At just 25 minute ride from the city, it is quite easy to access. Once there, you will enjoy the sound of the falls and a little bit of mist coming from them. The view on how... More

I drank a bottle of SoCo out of a boot at Kakabeka Falls back in the day. Don't remember anything after that but I do remember walking down to the bottom and trying to figure out if it could be run in a kayak. Don't think so. :)

If you're driving across Canada, mark Kakabeka Falls as a stretch your legs spot, & bring along a picnic (or takeout from local restaurant). Magnificent water fall in any season, and never the same two years in a row. Accessible trails wind along in the wilderness on both sides of the falls. In the summer, you can also take a... More

A National Historic site for it's canoe route and Native camps over centuries old. These Falls are fast and loud. Beautiful Provincial Park although not open yet for camping. The Falls have boardwalk walkways on both sides to give you a great perspective from all angles. There are stairs on the boardwalk so some areas are not easily wheelchair accessible...strollers...

The falls are just off of the highway and are very accessible via the walkways. Worth a stop. Beautiful with the heavy flow caused by the spring thaw!

Went here in july 2014 and really enjoyed it. The campsites are very secluded and there are many different trails. We walked to another waterfall in the area which was very nice. Kakabeka falls is one of the bigger waterfalls you will see.

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.
