Amazing views after a relatively easy walk. This was actually my second time visiting and it impressed equally on the return visit. There was a lot of highway construction going on and for some reason Google maps took us past Ouimet Canyon Rd and down a longish detour, maybe double check the route if you are following GPS FYI.

A must visit. Very beautiful and scenic. Viewing platforms are easily accessible from the parking lot. A nice place to visit and spend sometime. Great panoramic view of the canyon.

Ouimet Canyon is 11 km in off Highway 17, and it's well worth taking the drive in. There's a lovely path (1 km loop) that brings you to two different viewing platforms, and the views from both are totally amazing. There were also some peregrine falcons around when we visited, which was a bonus. No fee to visit Ouimet Canyon, but there was a cash donation box.

This is another 'must see' on the Lake Superior Circle Tour. Get out of your car and hike to the viewing platforms. Lots of information regarding the formation of this canyon. Well worth it if you have the time. Simply a good spot to view the local geology.

No doubt, the views are excellent and that the trails and viewing pods are well laid out, so we would still highly recommend this attraction. We made a mistake in going here in a rain storm, and didn't see this place at its best. We got drenched, our bad. Ontario Parks doesn't seem to have a consist way it charges visitors - but do count on paying something somehow if you want to stop at these public parks. In this case, it was only an unmanned cash donation suggestion of $2 per person. Other parks take only credit cards and what they do charge varies. This is a budget friendly attraction, and a great way to see a spectacular landscape (we're 99% sure...). We're not sure why the pit toilets weren't open on our visit.

This attraction only takes a couple of hours from start to finish but well worth the drive in off the road. Take the very short easily accessible trail down to the canyon for incredible vistas.

Wonderful Canyon greats views. Have always wanted to see it since I was a kid. The trails are excellent and the lookouts are magnificent. Also on the return trip to the highway the road gives you few great views of Lake Superior in the distance. Highly recommended.

What a gorgeous place. An easy drive from Thunder Bay, Ouimet Canyon Provincial Park is definitely worth a visit. There is a short, well-maintained walk to the first of two "viewing pods" that jut out over the canyon. We just loved it.

You don't need more than an hour or so to stroll to the viewing areas and back to the parking lot.

Absolutely stunning view. Easy quick trail from the parking area. Please read the Ojibwe story of Nanabozho before you go. He ties into a lot of the history in the Thunder Bay area (sleeping giant, kakabeka falls).
