Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site has it all -- lush forests, sublime lakes and dark skies. Generations have paddled, hiked, camped, and connected with nature and Mi’kmaw culture here. For thousands of years the Mi’kmaw people have lived with this land and petroglyphs, traditional encampment areas and canoe routes are still present.

“Keji” can be explored in a myriad of ways. It is an incredible spot to canoe, kayak, camp and hike. It is also home to Nova Scotia’s only dark sky preserve.
