Kejimkujik National Park is one of two National parks in Nova Scotia and the crown jewel of the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve. It is very popular with campers, hikers, bikers, and paddlers. “Keji” as it’s affectionately known, is Disney World for Nova Scotia nature lovers.
The park is extremely large and has a long Mi’kmaw history as a canoe route hub through its many waterways. You can discover, as the Mi’kmaw did thousands of years ago, that it is an ideal place to explore via canoe or kayak.
Keji: Disneyworld For Nature Lovers
The park is a campers paradise and has many different group and individual sites throughout the park. Newly added “oTENTik’s” provide a basic cabin type structure, ideal for families who don’t want the hassle of packing, and setting up a tent.
“Keji” is the best-preserved nature the province has to offer, and as such you are sure you see lots of nature you’ve never seen anywhere else. Whether it’s a 450-year-old Hemlock tree re-defining your idea of a forest, a barred owl watching over your campsite, or singing Loons signalling another spectacular sunset, there’s always something reminding you that you are in a special place.
Recently designated as a “dark sky preserve”, Keji is also the best place in the province to experience the stars as you’ve probably never seen them before. An outdoor amphitheatre and sky circle host many events and include telescopes.
I highly recommend talking to the friendly and knowledgeable Kejimkujik National Park visitor center staff and getting their recommendations on how best to accommodate the type of trip you have in mind.
