Convenient parking right off the highway and a short walk to the Falls. An interesting bridge across the river made from steel and stone. Great place to sit on the rocks along the falls and be mesmerized by the rushing water.

Great spot for Pic-Nic. Water was not that cold. Great for cooling on hot summer day. Would go back to relax. You can also hike.

If you're in North Bay - or simply in the area, this pretty little park is well worth stopping by! The falls are very pretty, and there are lots of trails and good views!

Great spot! Love the falls, getting to them is a bit of a challenge. Suggest wearing good shoes, once up the big hill, the rest is pretty easy. Summer, the water runs significantly slower than the spring. Hubby's bad knee couldn't do the climb. Great...More

None that I am aware of. No parking fees or permits required when I was there in summer 2017.
