Overview

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

Short walk to falls, caught pike at the base of the falls! Trail to the falls is accessible, trail to river has one very steep section.

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...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.
