Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park is 18.64 miles (30 km) west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Kakabeka, Ontario is a part of the Municipality of Oliver Paipoonge. The Kaministiquia River cuts and feeds over the 40 metres high rock face creating the falls and reveals 1.6 billion-year-old fossils. Known as the Niagara of the North, Kakabeka Falls is the second largest falls in Ontario. View the falls and the gorge from the boardwalk. Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park has a wide variety of facilities to uses and enjoy.
Kakabeka Falls has gorgeous dedicated trails that range in difficulty. Go for a walk, jog, or bike ride on one of the many trails. While out on the trails keep your eyes and ears open for one of the many birds that you can see in the area. Bald Eagles are popular around the gorge of the falls when they hunt for Salmon. See if you can hear any songbirds and listen for the Black Cap Chickadee. Head for a dip at the small sandy beach upstream from the falls on the Kaministiquia River. There are buoys marked where the swimming area is, and the gradual drop off. Head back after a long day of swimming and hiking to one of the comfortable campsites, available for car and group camping. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Kakabeka Falls.
