Day 8 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Kakabeka Falls by Thunder Bay, Ontario

Kakabeka Falls is in Kakabeka Falls provincial park about 25 kilometers west of Thunder Bay. This is the largest waterfall in the Lake Superior watershed, and it is known as the “Niagara of the North.” Much of the water that used to go over this waterfall has been diverted for power generation. They increase the flow on weekends, and of course the flow is much higher during the spring runoff. Parking at the Falls is expensive, so we would recommend parking a bit further down in the town and walking the 5 minutes to the Falls (there is a path) if you want to save a couple of dollars.

    Having visited here in the late ’80’s, you captured the essence of these fall.

    The historical importance of these falls is a geat story in itself.
