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.

We truly wished we'd had more time to spend here. It is a beautiful park with waterfalls, a lake, & a river. We rented a canoe and paddled out to the lake, which is huge, then went down the river a bit. Check the weather...More

As a West Coaster it hurts me to say this, but Keji is the best park I've ever been to. I did a three day canoe trip on the Northern loop, and could not have enjoyed it more. Canoeing through maple floodplains and fall clad...More

We just drove through the park and checked out the camping area, which was very nice. We went on a little walk to the falls, which was beautiful. If you are into nature, this is a great park.

In this area Keji is great to visit for either just a walk or rent a canoe (or two). One person can relax while the other paddles and it's gorgeous scenery. As well in the area is Annapolis Royal to one side (amazing... More
