Take the time to make the trip to see the falls, even if you do not plan to camp overnight. An access road to the south leads 6.8 km/4.2 miles to the park. A short trail leads to Lady Evelyn Falls. The falls form a giant curtain of water as the Kakisa River spills over a limestone escarpment. A staircase leads into the gorge at the base of the falls. The Kakisa River is a warm and boulder-strewn river with many lovely spots for wading and swimming. The fishing is excellent! Northern pike, pickerel/walleye and Arctic grayling can be caught by casting with small spoons into the pools at the base of the falls.


There are 23 powered campsites at a cost of $28/night CAD.

I’ve visited the beautiful Lady Evelyn Falls on couple of occasions, but didn’t have a chance to camp at this territorial park until couple of weeks back (long weekend two night stay). The main campsite (as opposed to RV one) is located just a short walk from the falls, with at least two different paths to the viewing platforms, and... More

Stop and take in one of the NWT's greatest falls. Make sure you bring your bug spray so you can stay long enough to enjoy it

The drive into Lady Evelyn Falls is not too far off of the main highway on the way to YK. Just have enough gas and do not count on getting any gas in Kaiska. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful.

We stopped in for 1 night encounter from Yellowknife to Fort Smith. The park is very clean and washrooms and showers are nice. The stairs to view the falls are fairly easy with a nice pathway. I was not willing to use the rope to get closer to the vase of the falls,not worth it. We could not find a... More

The falls are only a minor detour from the highway, but well worth the time. Particularly, one would think, for northbound travellers as the park and falls offer the first glimpse into the Spectacular scenery that the territory has to offer. There is a sign, to be ignored, in the parking lot that indicates the path is only for those... More

In my opinion the best falls in the falls route of Northwest Territories. Stunning. Majestic. Spectacular. I went down to the base of the falls and its worth the risk going down the cliff on the right side of the closed view deck. There is a rope tied unto the tree which I used to go down.
