Kakisa

K'ágee – “Between the willows”

Population: 45

Kakisa is the iconic North – a tiny, traditional Dene settlement of log cabins, blazing fireweed and fragrant evergreens, all nestled beside the broad blue waters of Kakisa Lake. It’s an easy 13-kilometre detour from Highway 1, just up the road from the camping, fishing, paddling and sightseeing opportunities at stately Lady Evelyn Falls. There’s a small convenience store with limited hours.
