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.

Gorgeous walk around the beautiful falls. It's an easy walk, no hiking. Once you park it's about 20 steps and you're there!

We had the best visit at this wonderful falls at the park. The falls are stupendous to say the least & the park has built wonderful decking with stairs for all the various views so a person can either take selfies or simply pictures of the gorgeous falls. We arrived late in the day & spent about an hour taking... More

This park offers easy access to waterfall viewing, with options for longer hikes as well. The falls are definitely the main attraction, so makes for a good day trip. There isn't too much else to do - a few hiking trails, so a longer camping trip might not be worthwhile. Park staff were very friendly and helpful.

Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park is a thirty-minute drive east of Thunder Bay. Kakabeka Falls is the second-highest waterfall in the province after Niagara Falls, with a forty-metre drop. The park offers camping as well as day use. Although I have not used the camping facilities I have visited the falls area many times over the years. There is a pleasant... More

Kakabeka Falls Park is located about 40 minutes from Thunder Bay. It's a nice park with good facilities. It think it cost something like $5 for parking.. The falls themselves are lovely. For with limited mobility, it's possible to see the falls without climbing lots of stairs.
