It was pretty but personally I like clear waterfalls. It didnt cost much to park and walk down the stairs to the falls. If you have knee or hip problems the stairs maybe hard on you. There is a platform to take pictures of the...More

Bucket List: Visit every Provincial Park in Ontario. We visited briefly as I have been here a few times before. My travel companions went back the next day and spent more time exploring. This is a beautiful park with trails right up to the falls.

This was one of our favorite waterfalls on our Lake Superior Circle Tour vacation. It was loud and raging. So powerful. We did the Boardwalk Walking Trail and viewed both sides of the falls. This was very easy and only had a few stairs. We...More

You are charged a minor fee to view this Canadian treasure. Beautiful views of the falls on both sides from a nicely built stair and view point. Worth the stop.

I'm from BC, so I've seen a lot of waterfalls in my life. We've also visited Niagara Falls on our travels, so I really wasn't expecting a whole lot from Kekabeka - WOW was I wrong! The amount of water pouring over the side of...More
