We went here just after New Years and it was terrific. This was our second winter-time visit. Very scenic and the trail we went on was very easy to walk for a family with young teens. Lots of nice photo ops.

This is our version of the Niagara only 35 mons west of Thunder Bay. Everyone loves it here. I live in the area, however every time my family or friends come to visit they love it here. Find out the history. It's quite interesting.

KAKABEKA FALLS After a road trip over the top of Lake Superior at the end of May 2016 this was to be our last night in an Ontario Provincial Park before crossing the border. We chose this location because of the falls. The falls are truly magnificent and the water is such a stunning colour. We viewed from both sides... More

Saw this on Google Maps and went to see it with my sister. There is some climbing, but only a few steps at at time. I find that I almost prefer going there to Niagara as, first of all, the crowds were not so huge and I was able to get photos without having to include people. We were there... More

If you prefer nature and hidden gems over the commercial bright lights of places like Niagara, this is the place for you. We stopped here on a long journey and really wish we had a whole day or two to go on adventures. The falls are amazing and the whole area is begging to be hiked and rummaged in. Easily... More

Went here on a sunny but cold winter day and it was absolutely stunning! A little bit of a drive out of the city but 100% worth it. Make sure to not forget the camera! Cross the foot bridge and stand on top of the waterfall which is pretty amazing.

We stopped here on our roadtrip from East to West on the Trans Canada Highway. The waterfalls are massive and beautiful. They're colour is like Guiness and the hikes around it are quite nice. If you're close definitely go and see them.

Good car parking although you have to buy a ticket. Falls are quite spectacular with a lot of North American Indian folklore attached to them. The rangers in charge give an interesting safety talk including what to do if confronted with a bear.

What a great place to take a nice, easy hike. The trails are all boardwalks at the rim of the waterfall, so you are looking down at the falls the entire time. It was hard to get great photos, but it was very enjoyable couple of hours.

Our family absolutely enjoyed the beautiful Kakabeka Falls. While we were there we saw a bald eagle flying overhead. The walkways are well maintained and easy to navigate. The falls themselves are beautiful. Parking is convenient.
