Great place to stretch.

Not a lot was around here. The river walk was fun to stretch however the tower was not as exciting as we heard it was.

Excellent panarama view of Rainy Lake

The Voyageur Park is an interesting stop for a break, and let the dog out.
Brings back memories of better days gone by in the logging and forest industry.
Not exactly welcoming in inclement weather or winter.

This is not for the frial but the ones that like climbing the many steps(120). From the bird seekers to natures lovers this is worth the climb.

Climb to the top to see it all...

This tower replica of an old fire tower along the river is a definite plus along the riverfront. Walking up the over 100 grated stairs is a bit daunting, but so rewarding once you get to the top to sit and look around. There is toy equipment on the ground beside the tower that is excellent for families to use and the Marina has a great ice cream counter in the summer months that is a must to stop at.

Great lookout!

If you do not mind climbing lots of grated stairs, you will get a great view of both Fort Frances and International Falls. The River is beautiful!

Worth a Visit
Jul 2012
The Lookout Tower has been relocated and upgraded. The new site has its benefits but the views are not that great as you are mostly seeing residential areas and not sites that make the area a great place to visit. It is only open in summer and the old Hallet Tug boat is the only other real attraction. The location across street from a woodyard is a distraction.Still worth a onetime visit if stopping in friendly Fort Frances, Ontario

The tower has been reconstructed and moved to the river front, right beside the Sorting Gap marina. Visitors can easily buy a ticket at the marina that will let them visit the Hallet, the tower (both on location) as well as the museum downtown. The waterfront at the tower is beautiful with a walkway, a playground for kids and hard ice cream cones in the summer (when the tower is open). It is a fun climb to the top with a great view.

You can climb the Tower or tour the Hallet on Fort Frances waterfront. The Tower is the best place to see great views of Fort Frances and Rainy Lake.
The hike requires good footwear but isn't too far up for anyone to go.
