|Description & Services|
|Information||Kejimkujik (pronounced kej-im-koo-jik) National Park encompasses 381 square kilometres of forests and interconnecting lakes, offering the visitor a variety of paddling experiences in natural, undeveloped surroundings.
Many of the canoe routes follow those of the original Mi'kmaq, whose historical influence in this area extends back over 5000 years. A paddling or hiking trip into Kejimkujik's backcountry is a chance to experience the tranquil, wild landscape that makes this national park so special.
The park offers day trip opportunities and longer routes that will take you well into the backcountry. Routes are serviced with well-maintained portages and "primitive" camping sites. Campgrounds, group campgrounds and canoe rentals are also available. Other activities in the park include hiking, supervised swimming, picnicking, guided interpretive programs and self-guided trails. Kejimkujik is home to a wide variety of wildlife such as white-tailed deer, porcupine, beaver and the endangered Blanding's turtle.
