The falls are super-large right now but I am sure they would be very impressive year around. Easy access, just off the highway, and easy walk to viewpoints. Not to be missed. My only complaint is that the visitor center / shop closed at 4:00...More

Great place to see. The falls itself is awesome. It is little smaller than Niagara Falls. Great for camping and hiking in the jungle. It is not too far from Thunder Bay.

There had been a rainstorm the day before, so the water (a little brownish) was literally roaring over the falls! Absolutely Amazing! Once you get to the park it is easy to access the falls from the parking lot. The multi-level boardwalk lets you see...More

Having seen Niagara and Victoria Falls, we were surprised at how captivating these falls were. They glint a copper color in the sunlight, just beautiful. It was a shame the visitor center wasn't open. Enjoyed our hike on the Poplar Point ski trail through the...More

Kakabeka Falls is about 19 miles west of Thunder Bay. If you have the time it is well worth the drive to see this magnificent, powerful waterfall! It is nicknamed the "Niagara of the North" for good reason. The walkway to view the falls is...More

The falls were spectacular and powerful! There's a convenient boardwalk which circles all around it so that you can see it from all angles including just above it where the river itself flows slowly and softly before pounding loudly over the rocks in the canyon...More

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.
