Spectacular view

Worth the drive; easy hike; small entrance fee. Amazing vista from the viewing pods; the depth of the canyon is deceiving from the decks.

This wasn't on our list to stops, but we are glad we did. The view was a breath taking. The first picture shows the stone giant. The story how it was created was very interesting.

Wow what great views of this unique canyon. Take the trail and learn about how this canyon was formed. Very helpful staff and no admission charged. Don't miss this place.

Worth the drive up to the canyon at the end of a long day. The views were spectacular. The wooden walkways and bridge were a great start to the gravel trail and two look-outs from large viewing areas. Snapped many photos.

The Ouimet Canyon close to Thunder Bay was on my list of places to visit during our family's 20 day Trans Canada Road Odyssey. We had read about this on various websites and the steep canyon walls excited us. Right from Nipigon we started seeing steep cliffs of rock along the highway, with Red Rock, just outside Nipigon as a... More

No view of the rock faces which defined the Canyon. Sanitized sterilized castrated canyon views. My guest who had not been there before said it was O.K. Just O.k..!!!!!t This used to be spectacular what a shame

This is a beautiful spot. Easy hike (about 1 mile round trip) to two overlooks that offer stunning views of sheer rock canyon with Lake Superior in the distance. Definitely worth the trip!

We have visited Ouimet Canyon many times over the years and always find it to be absolutely spectacular! It is about 15 km. off Highway 17 and approximately an hour east of the City of Thunder Bay and is well worth the visit. When I first visited, years ago, there were no safety fences, constructed scenic lookout or bathroom facilities.... More

what a Beatuiful place. Amazing canyon walls but this is a dry Canyon mostly unless water runs through it when the snow melts or water is underground. The walk is not steep and very easy for everyone with 2 viewing platforms. They do have fences on them. A twonee or any donation is accepted. no Camping just a day use... More
