Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site
If you love the great outdoors then you’ve just gotta get to Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site because there’s no greater place to take it all in – all 404+ square kilometres/156+ square miles of it. For generations, folks have been flocking to this special spot on Nova Scotia’s South Shore filled with tremendous trails, lovely lakes and streams, deep woods and spectacular seaside.
Kejimkujik offers a variety of camping experiences too – from front-country campsites for tents, trailers, and RVs to backcountry sites accessible by hiking, biking, or paddling. Indeed year after year happy campers return to this beloved nature-filled destination, but this year – there’s even more to love!
Just wait till you see what they’ve done at Jeremy’s Bay Campground. Front country campers have an all-new overnight accommodation to experience in the new Ôasis camping units overlooking Kejimkujik Lake. Shaped like a teardrop, each heated unit can sleep up to two adults and two children – complete with a table that converts to a bed, and a hammock loft. And how about the wonderful windows?! Just perfect for looking at the lake and stargazing through the Dark-Sky Preserve.
Better still, all the old washrooms have been replaced with ten new modern and inclusive washroom and shower facilities. All designed to be larger for improved comfort, conveniently located, and accessible and barrier-free to meet the needs of all visitors. Plus these new gender-neutral facilities have been designed for improved privacy and personal security.
But the awesome new stuff doesn’t stop there. Hikers and bikers will be pleased to discover Ukem’k. It’s pronounced “ook-may-k” which means “twisted” in Mi’kmaq because that’s the name of their brand new 6km/3.7mile long and winding trail that connects day-use areas and the campground on a single shared-use trail.
Oh yes – there’s so much to see and explore at Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site and there’s plenty to learn too. We’re happy to report Todd Labrador will be back building authentic birch bark canoes at the Merrymakedge workshop.
Best make plans and then make tracks so you can explore everything for yourself in this truly special spot on Nova Scotia’s South Shore.
