Make the trip to see the falls, even if you do not plan to camp overnight. From the Mackenzie Highway, an access road leads 6.8 kilometres south to the park. From the parking lot, 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.
