Review of Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site

Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Uniquely designated a National Park and a National Historic site, Kejimkujik is the only National Park with a dual designation making it a truly one of a kind destination to explore and experience in southwestern Nova Scotia. With 381 square kilometres of rolling hills, old growth hemlocks and interconnected waterways, Keji, as it’s known in Nova Scotia, is a gentle wilderness that has been welcoming generations of families to canoe, camp and connect with nature. Not only does the park protect a unique sample of the Acadian forest and a diverse ecosystem, it also preserves and presents a cultural landscape, celebrating the presence of the Mi’kmaq and shares the stories of their ancestors and history in this place. The rich Mi’kmaw heritage, rock carvings known as petroglyphs, traditional encampment areas and ancient canoe routes all contributed to the designation of Kejimkujik as a National Historic Site. Special programs share this amazing history. With very low light pollution in this part of the NS, Kejimkujik is well placed as a Dark Sky Preserve. As the sun sets over the western shores of Kejimkujik Lake, a spectacular panorama of tens of thousands of stars, constellations and planets is unveiled.

“Kejimkujik campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Fantastic place to get away from it all! Jeremy's Bay campground ( the name of the front country campground) is nestled along the shores of the large Kejimkujik Lake. Most camp sites are well spaced and offer shade. All sites are within easy walking distance, many with a view, to the lake which is perfect for swimming and canoeing/ kayaking. Keji has 29 lakes, many of which are connected to the main lake which makes for awesome day tripping in your water craft! The dishwashing sinks, located at each bathroom, are a bonus, since this park only offers electrical hookups (access to water is convenient, however). RV sites are level, tent sites, I'm afraid, for the most part, are not. There is a shower building in the centre of the campground which has plenty of hot water, if not pressure. There is free WiFi located next to the shower building.
Keji is the warmest spot in Nova Scotia, located about 30 minutes away from beautiful, historic Annapolis Royal and the popular Upper Clements Theme Park. It is about 1 hour from the other side of the province and the towns of Bridgewater and Liverpool. The Seaside part of Keji is located near Liverpool and is a site well worth a day trip. It's beach looks like a tropical paradise with sparkling white sand and aquamarine waters (very unusual in this part of the world) there are also plenty of Harbour seals. If you need to replenish some supplies, or are looking for a meal, the park offers a canteen located approx 7km from the campground. There is also a restaurant/ store located right outside the park. The town of Caledonia is 15 min away and has many other services. We spend several weeks each year here with family and friends, we don't go near our car for days on end! Grab your bikes, canoes/ kayaks or walking shoes and enjoy the great outdoors!

“Beautiful Keji”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

An informative visitor centre dealing with the natural environs and Mi'kmaq culture. Keji itself is beautiful. I was happy to visit one of the rock carving sites, and learned to master a canoe for the first time!

“Camping in Kejimkujik National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

If you're visiting Nova Scotia and enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, canoeing or kayaking, Keji is not to be missed! We have been camping and canoeing here for more than 25 years and has everything for the entire family. The hiking is as easy or hard as you want to make it, paddling the lakes or river and keeping an eye out for turtles, frogs and other animals is always a popular activity. If you're camping in the backcountry, book your site early, especially if you want the most popular site #15!

If you're camping in the front country you can now reserve your specific site on-line. Not into electrical sites - stay in Jim Charles loop close to the trail that goes to both Slapfoot beach and Meadow Beach, has a canoe rack and a great little gazebo to sit and watch the sun go down. Take your bike, hit the trail for a paddle at Jake's Landing, an ice cream or lunch at the canteen and spend the afternoon at the main beach then bike back for an awesome campfire supper. Into trees, the Hemlocks and Hardwood trail has an incredible ancient forest or to Mill Falls to watch the water rushing, take a ride on the Mersey River in an inner tube for either a slow paced float or a fast rushing blast depending on the water level. At night you can take in the Sky Circle or the theater and if you're lucky hear a wonderful story teller spin a tale. Lots to do in this park, unless you want to sling the hammock between 2 trees and catch up on your reading or a few zs.
