En route from Thunder Bay to Duluth we saw the signs for these falls and stopped off. It was ideal for our purposes: 1. Close to road so only a short detour 2. Cheap to enter (just $3 parking fee) 3. Spectacular to look at We didn't stay long at all but it was a great addition to the day.

We were visiting Thunder Bay and had been told to come here. Boy was I glad we did! For $3 we had an hour pass which was perfect to stretch our legs and take in the gorgeous falls. Definitely stop here if you get the chance

This is an impressive waterfall in size. The canyon downstream is also very pretty. The only detractors are that it's a bit of a drive to get there and not a lot of other things to do in the immediate area. Still worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

This is a "must see" place for any traveler in the area. Impressive and powerful waterfalls. Very much worth the trip across the border for USA tourists. There is a fee to park, but we didn't mind supporting the great attraction they have here. Very nice boardwalks to viewpoints. Too many younger trees are being allowed to grow at viewpoints,...

Stayed there this past weekend. You can start to see very slight fall colors. The park was very quiet at night. Picnic tables and fire rings at the sites

Perhaps there are others but this is the first provincial park that allowed me to purchase less than a full day pass. Because of time constraints I purchased a 2 or 3 hour pass, sorry I can't recall. It didn't cost much. The falls are great, amazing and picturesque. We also went for a hike on one of their nature... More

Short drive outside of Thunder Bay, and definitely worth the drive. Paid the 1 hour parking which was only $3. Very pretty and highly recommend visiting if in the area.

I simply love Kakabeka Falls! This provincial park is clean, quaint and simply beautiful. You have to stop here on your road trip. I can only recommend it, it won't take too much time out of your day - you will NOT regret it!
