Must see attraction when passing thru on the Hwy. Falls is actually 2 feet deeper than Niagara Falls, but doesn't have the volume of water. Not illuminated at nite, and parking is congested at times. Town becomes very quiet after 10:00 pm.

First off: the falls are the highlight and well-worth seeing. Walking trails for humans and 4-legged friends are all easily negotiable. Not "touristy" at all. The campground is lovely, BUT... ...the electrical and water connections were clearly designed by someone who had no idea that...More

Beautiful, massive falls! FYI, the visitor center is located in the side with the campground. The falls are a short walk from the parking area. Not overly crowded in the fall.

This is a must-see area just north of the Minnesota-Canada border. Easy drive for a amazing natural landmark. Large tourist center closed but small shop available.

Kakabeka Falls is a real jewel. Beautiful waterfalls, much larger than one would expect. The cost to enter the park is incredibly reasonable. A great location for a picnic or a hike with lots of boardwalks and trails.

There is a kiosk right at the entrance to the parking lot that accepts credit cards. But it doesn't seem to be the most reliable piece of equipment, so you may have to go inside the building.

We were there in the afternoon. If the Webb site does not tell you it is open all of the time to see. It is an open trail system. It s only the ranger office and gift shops that have restrictions on their hours.

No.there is no bus to the falls. I would suggest renting a car for they day, then you can visit other loCal sites.
