Even though it's not Niagara and the water looks "a bit" yellow, it's not so huge, the falls looks amazing! I thing it's the MUST to see in Ontario. There is a huge parking, big area to watch and a Souvenir Shop. You can watch the waterfall from right and the left side.

Kakabeka Falls is breathtaking. Beautiful walkways and overlooks give close up views of the falls. Loved the rainbows! Got lots of great pictures. Well worth the drive!

Kakabeka Falls is an absolutely gorgeous natural gem - we visited in the early spring and found the area a scenic wonder.

The winter views are beautiful. The falls are frozen. On a bright day the view is breathtaking. The visitor centre is open only during summer.

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.
