We have just returned from a weekend at the Mersey River Chalets which are just next to the Kejimkujik National Park in Nova Scotia, Canada. The holiday compound is far off the beaten track, at least 2 kilometres on a gravel road off the secondary Highway 8, and about 47 kilometers from Annapolis Royal. There are teepees with beds, fire pits, a lodge, a kitchen area and both large and small chalets. All the chalets have been adapted for wheelchair use. There are ramps everywhere. The Mersey River winds around the compound and feeds into a crystal clear lake where canoes and kayaks are provided. The only thing which we didn't like, but didn't resent either was that the sinks and stoves are set low for people in wheelchairs. The nature park is ideal for family wishing to experience true wilderness. The two staff felines, Magic and Minky are most friendly, as is all of the staff. If it weren't so far we would be sure to return often.
