  • We stayed one night in Rainbow Fall Provincial Park - Rossport and one night in Rainbow Falls Provincial Park - Whitesand Lake. The Rossport campground is smaller and would likely get a little crowded...  more »
  • This was another gorgeous cascading water fall for a quick stop. Paid $11 day pass here. Did Ouimet (We may) , here, and Kakabeka falls.  more »
  • Rainbow Falls is where a small river comes off the Canadian Shield to the level of Lake Superior. It's not particularly spectacular but offers a pleasant walk through the woods.  more »
