When leaving Thunder Bay, we passed this Provincial Park and decided to spend the night. It is such an easy stop off the highway. The parking lot was full, but the park didn't appear crowded. I don't think you will be disappointed if you stop. I was amazed by the beauty and the power of the falls. The water is... More

Drove through the town of Kakabeka Falls in 2012 and really wanted to stop by the park but we ended up driving by. Ever since then, I've been hoping to get another chance. Was in the area again in 2013 but it didn't work out then as well. For our recent drive, I made it a point to make it... More

An easy stop off the trans-Canada highway, and an easy walk around the falls, a stop at the falls revives the body and spirit. We spotted a bald eagle on our hike, and a doe fording the river.

We visited the falls based upon recommendations by natives, and we are glad we did! It was simply beautiful! The park was very well maintained and easily accessible......made for a lovely walk although not far or difficult in any way.

The falls are easy to access and spectacular. From the highway side, there is a really good view from viewing platforms (down some steps). You can drive across a one-lane bridge and see the view from the other side. We saw a lovely rainbow above the falls, but got pretty wet from the mist. (It was worth it!) There is... More

Driving West through Ontario, we stopped to see Kakabeka Falls! Simply amazing! They were very impressive. Parks Ontario has done a very good job with the design of the pathways and boardwalks, as you are able to closely explore the area around the falls from a variety of vantage points. It is a must see!

Kakabeka Falls is the second largest falls in Ontario. In fact, it's only 13 metres shorter than Niagara Falls. It's red coloured water is due to the iron content in the area rock and the thundering sound of the water is awesome. The oldest layers of the area have million-year old rock where 1.6 billion year old fossils have been... More
