This is a small rapids that is associated with the Okikendawt generation station. This is a 10 MW station owned and operated by the Dokis First Nation. I have not visited the site, but believe that you can see the rapids from Keso Bay Road. A second slightly larger rapids are found 1.2 km further along the road at 46.1206, -80.0195.

While the area does appear to be picturesque, neither of the rapids are of significant size. Most won't go out of your way to visit this site. Unfortuantely, you have to go out of your way if you want to see the rapids, as the road network does not continue elsewhere.

As always, please be respectful when entering First Nations territories. Expect to run into gates as you get closer to the hydro plant grounds.
