Beautiful falls, but nothing spectacular to go out of my way for. I would like to see falls where there is more surrounding the scenery

Normal man made dam created the waterfall so the flow was dependent on how much water they wanted to let out of the lake.

Extremely short trail and not much of a falls if the dam isn't opened. Small picnic shelter. About 2 km off the main highway on unpaved road.

This is a small but lovely falls area. There is an eating area and a washroom. Don't know if its clean or stocked but I did see one.

The falls are typical of hte falls around the shores of Lake Superior. They tend to be gentle over exposed shield rock. Worth the stop just a couple miles off the main road on a well maintained dirt road.

We got directions when we asked for a nice place to have picknick, but if not, we would never have found it. Coming from Wawa, pass the airport, drive until you see a big industrial? white house on the right, turn right on the gravel...More

The falls are awesome with a short drive off Hwy 17 but the restrooms were horrible - filthy and no TP!! Don't let that stop you though... just be prepared!

Very nice falls with great scenery. There's a little walk up to the top of the falls, but they can be viewed from the parking lot. A nice place to just sit and enjoy the view.

These are seriously wide falls with a crest of 125 feet and a height of 75 feet. The falls are easy to get to from Highway 17. Take the 1.5 mile gravel road to the bottom of the falls and there is an easy path...More
