It was well worth the time to stop and have a look at this beautiful waterfall. It wasn't very crowded and just a short walk from the parking lot. Recommend.

The Kakabeka Falls are possible the best falls of this size that I've seen. Living in Thailand, I see many fine falls, but none match these. Iguazu and Niagara are bigger but Kakabeka are right up there and not to be missed if in Ontario.

Visited the Provincial Park in the spring and enjoyed the incredible beauty of Kakabeka Falls. The park was not yet open for tourist season but you could walk around on the pathways. Highly recommend connecting with nature here!

The Province of Ontario has provided great lookouts to both sides of the falls. Mid morning the sun breaks over the trees and the pictures are great...so good that it appears that the people have been photoshopped in. It is about 20 minute drive from...More

Kakabeka Falls is situated in a provincial park 30 minutes outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is no Niagara but, in May at least, it's full, scenic and powerful. The gorge is quite interesting as well. There are hiking trails ranging from wheelchair accessible to...More

Never get tired of this wonder. Since 1956. The falls are always different but the same. The roar of water, the mist, often a rainbow - bring me back. Magnetic.

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.
